Normally, it wouldn't be all that newsworthy for a TV show to hire a staff of writers, but when that TV show is "Glee," it's at least vaguely notable.
For the Emmy-winning FOX musical dramedy's first two seasons, every single episode was written by co-creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. Some people have questioned whether or not that was necessarily a wise idea, but it happened.
According to Deadline.com
, though, six writers have been hired to assist on the third season.
Most prominent is "Chuck" and "No Ordinary Family" veteran Allison Adler, who will serve as co-executive producer. Joining as co-producer as Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who most recently was in charge of overhauling the book for Broadway's "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark." Loved and hated "Buffy," "Angel" and "Mad Men" veteran Marti Noxon will be a consulting producer next season, as will recognizable character actor and Christopher Guest favorite Michael Hitchcock. Matt Hodgson and Ross Maxwell will be staff writers.
