Ryan Murphy Developing Comedy for Kristin Chenoweth

According to Entertainment Weekly, Glee creator Ryan Murphy is developing a half-hour musical comedy series to star his friend Kristin Chenoweth.  Known best for her performances as the orignial Glinda in Wicked and as Fran Kubelik in the Broadway revival of Promises, Promises as well as guest appearing as April Rhodes in Glee, Chenoweth is no newcomer to television.  She had parts in the short-lived ABC series Pushing Dasies and also played on The West Wing from 2004-2006.  This also won't be her first crack at her own show.  Back in 2001 she was the star of Kristin, however it only lasted 11 episodes.  Ryan Murphy said it will not be a spin-off of Glee, but a brand new show to showcase Kristin's unique talents.

I've been wondering how many musical shows are going to be created in the coming years due to the success of Glee.  I hope this is a great show because I really like Chenoweth, she has an amazing voice and is funny to boot!

So what do you think?  Will this show be amazing or a flop?  Sound off in the comments....
