Exciting news from the world of ‘Glee!’ Producers officially announced they will launch a reality competition series to find the next star of the hit FOX comedy!

‘The Glee Project’ will air on the Oxygen network starting in June.  The 10-episode series will focus on finding and training a lucky (and uber-talented) Gleek for a role on the scripted show.

And it won’t be some 5-second walk on appearance.  The selected contestant will guest star in a whopping 7 episodes!

The idea for the reality series was masterminded by executive producer Ryan Murphy. ‘Glee Project’ executive producer Dante Di Loreto — who also produces on the FOX show explained:

Everything was creatively driven by Ryan. He had the idea for this at end of the first season.

And Gleeks, if you’re worried that the reality show won’t be able to find real talent, producers assure they will implement the same process they used to find Glee newbies [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Chord Overstreet[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Darren Criss[/lastfm]!

Unfortunately, producers have already completed their open casting calls, but if ‘The Glee Project’ is successful, maybe they will have a second season! Think you have what it takes? Check out the video below for information on the Dallas/Forth Worth open auditions that took place last week!
