The Glee Knockoff We’ve All Been Expecting

It's like Glee in tents!

CW is developing its own musical show, but it's unclear whether they'll be using original songs. It's called Acting Out, and it intends to explore the "relationships of counselors and staff of a down-on-its-luck summer camp whose new owner is a young curmudgeon in the vein of Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa." It's created by Todd Graff, the director of the 2003 movie Camp, about a musical sleepaway camp. The man clearly has a niche, as well as a drawer full of friendship bracelets made of gimp.
