"Glee" co-creator Ryan Murphy will reportedly be stepping away from full control of the hit Fox show, according to the New York Post’s Page Six. The story cites sources saying Murphy is scaling back his “Glee” work to make time for his new project, “The New Normal.”
The new show has been given a pilot order by NBC, the piece notes. Allison Adler, a co-executive producer on "Glee," is also working on the project, about a gay couple and their surrogate.
With Murphy focusing on the new project, "Glee" co-creator Brad Falchuck reportedly has taken control of the day-to-day operations of the Fox show, the story says.
However, Murphy’s rep said the story is "totally false" and added that Murphy "is and will continue to be 100 percent involved with and committed to ‘Glee,’ as he is with ‘American Horror Story’ and as he will be with ‘The New Normal,’" according to the piece.
