Disney Channel Readying Show That Sounds a Lot Like ‘Glee,’ With One Big Difference

Nov 12, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The success of Fox’s "Glee" was bound to inspire similar projects, and that appears to be what’s behind the news today that Disney Channel is gearing up for a musical television series set in high school, Deadline.com reports.

The show, tentatively titled "Madison High," is on the fast track at the cable channel, the story says, with a pilot order imminent. Disney is citing "High School Musical" as the inspiration for the single-camera sitcom, which will focus on kids in the age range of 11-16.

There are also elements of "Fame" in the premise, since "Madison High" is about the creation of an elite theater program.

The one really big element that differentiates  "Madison High" from ‘Glee’ is that  "Madison High" will  feature all original music.

One of the elements that both viewers and critics have pointed to about "Glee’s" success is its clever use of established music.

However, Disney’s successful "High School Musical" franchise has all been using original music.


  1. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
