20th Century Fox Television has issued a statement on today’s memorial for Glee star Cory Monteith. The studio noted the gathering was private and no further details would be released. Monteith died from an overdose of heroin and alcohol earlier this month. Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy told Deadline at Comic-Con last weekend that the cast would begin shooting the two episodes already written in late August, followed by a tribute episode and a “long hiatus”. The statement:
Today, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith. We thank the public for their continued outpouring of love and support as we grieve our friend and colleague during this difficult time.
