Would you watch a song-and-dance series on Disney Channel?
The pilot, if greenlit, is a single-camera comedy just like HSM and employs the break-into-song-and-dance format to tell the stories about 11-16 year-olds navigating the school social hierarchy. The series will be set at the title school, which is trying to build a revolutionary theatre program, and follows a pool of students who, by the end of the year, will have produced an original piece based on their lives.
But the difference between MH and FOX’s Glee? MH will have all-original music.
The Office alum Lester Lewis is writing Madison High, and executive producing with alongside Paul Hoen.
