Glee: The First Time

Story by Jack Foley

GLEE is to feature an episode devoted to the music of late singer Michael Jackson.

Creator Ryan Murphy is planning an instalment featuring up to 12 songs, according to TV Guide.

The idea gathered momentum following the success of recent episode Hold On To Sixteen, which saw the cast perform Michael Jackson’s Man In The Mirror and the Jackson 5 classic ABC.

They have also previously performed Thriller during the Super Bowl episode earlier this year.

According to the report, the themed episode is set to begin shooting this Friday (December 9, 2011), but won’t be completed until after the holiday break next year.

Cast members have also been flooding Murphy with their own Jackson requests.
