LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy is breaking out his funny bone.
Access Hollywood has confirmed that NBC secured the rights to a comedy pilot from the television mogul.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the comedy – which Murphy will co-write with Allison Adler, a “Glee” co-executive producer, will center around a gay couple who use a surrogate to bring their baby into the world.
If picked up, the show could premiere in Fall 2012, EW reported.
Murphy’s hit show “Glee” airs on FOX, while his latest drama – “American Horror Story” – is on FX.
The creator’s “The Glee Project,” which helps find new talent for his high school musical show, airs on Oxygen, part of the NBCUniversal family.
