ABC’s New Pilot Is ‘Glee for Conservative Republicans’
Now that Desperate Housewives has breathed its last, sultry breath, show creator Marc Cherry is moving on, and his new project is a pilot called Hallelujah. The show is set in Oklahoma and will feature singing, dancing, and “battles between good and evil.” Cherry has referred to the show as, “Glee for conservative Republicans.”
Probably, Cherry means that the show will feature church-goers who occasionally burst into song, and occasionally confess to some seriously steamy sins. But what if the show actually took all Glee‘s characters, transplanted them, and inserted right-wing loonies to damn our heroes to an eternity of fire, brimstone, and banishment from all things Bieber? What fun they could have sending Chris Colfer‘s character Kurt to hetero-indoctrination camp, or having the school ostracize Lea Michele for her supposed role in the killing of Jesus. The protagonist would undoubtedly be Jane Lynch’s Sue, whose Palin-esque dogmatic ignorance would be worked for indoctrination instead of laughs. Sounds like a great show, Marc!
