TCA: Talks “Have Begun” For Second Season Of Oxygen’s ‘The Glee Project’

By | Tuesday August 2, 2011 @ 2:26pm PDT

Diane Haithman is contributing to Deadline’s coverage of TCA.

At today’s TCA panel on Oxygen’s The Glee Project — the 10-episode documentary/reality program that has resulted in the selection of a new cast member for Fox’s hit show Glee, although the winner has not yet been announced — executive Michael Davies confirmed negotiations for a second season are underway. “Yes, talks have begun, the planning is starting to happen, the budgeting, and how we’re going to do the casting, which is the big thing,” he said. “It hasn’t been officially picked up yet. But having been through this before with shows that have not been picked up, just based on the ratings growth that we’ve seen … I feel incredibly confident that we are coming back, and it’s certainly in my plans for next year.” After a disappointing start, the reality series has been consistently building in the ratings and breaking records for Oxygen in online traffic and social media following.

Davies also said he doesn’t expect the recent Glee controversy involving the fate of some of its principals to have a negative impact on The Glee Project, which is executive produced by Glee co-creator/exec producer Ryan Murphy, whose comments sparked the controversy.
