Chris Colfer writing pilot show for Disney
Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel in the hit U.S musical series 'Glee', has opened up about his new show pilot that he wrote for The Disney Channel.
The multi-talented star confirmed earlier this month that he has also written a movie, but he has also been asked to adapt a book into a screenplay for a potential series that could air on the iconic children's channel:
"My agent’s husband bought the rights to the book [Florence Laughlin's The Little Leftover Witch]. They brought it to me and told me they were in talks with Disney and knew that I was a hidden writer and asked me to adapt it into a screenplay."
He added, excitedly:
"I got so into it. I wrote like a 102 page screenplay in two days. The story was just so cute about this little witch that falls and gets lost on Halloween night and gets stuck with this family. I just totally fell in love with the story and the characters and then added a bunch of stuff and made it my own. Disney bought the screenplay and then asked me to develop it into a TV series."
The young performer is no stranger to multi-tasking what with his full-time role on 'Glee' and other writing commitments, so it will be interesting to see what materializes from this very promising project.
