The series' creator refuses to reveal what the tribute is about, but says that he has got a greenlight to make it.
"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy has landed permission to pay homage to one of his favorite acts - and it has inspired him to create a TV movie. The writer/director has already filmed "Glee" tribute episodes inspired by Lady GaGa, Britney Spears and Fleetwood Mac - and now he has been given the go ahead to reimagine the music of another major act.
Murphy is not revealing who the cast will cover for his "Glee" movie, but he tells The Hollywood Reporter, "We'll make a two-hour television movie out of it. I don't want to reveal what the tribute is about, but we finally got permission."
Recently, it has been announced that "Glee" concert movie, "Glee Live! 3D!", will be released in theaters on August 12. The documentary will feature footage taken from "GleeLive! In Concert!" North American tour.
