Sky 1 commissions ITN Productions for Glee Season 3 spin-off fan show

ITN Productions has been commissioned by Sky 1 to produce a weekly multi-platform fan show for its exclusive property series three of Glee, starting this Thursday.

‘The Gleekly’ will be an exclusive news and gossip programme about all things McKinley High, available immediately after each episode on Sky 1’s dedicated website www.sky.com/glee. Each instalment of ‘The Gleekly’ will feature up to ten minutes of exclusive interviews with the show’s cast including Chris Colfer and Lea Michele, reaction to new storylines from fans and celebrities, and behind-the-scenes previews from the Glee set.

The website will be trailed after each episode of Glee to encourage fans to go online immediately to find out more about the programme and its characters.

“The Gleekly will be unmissable for Gleeks and people that want the latest news and gossip about the show,” said Steve Carsey, Chief Creative Officer for ITN Productions. “The quick-turnaround and high-quality production values of ‘The Gleekly’ are indicative of the content that ITN Productions delivers broadcasters – from hard-hitting factual programming to entertainment news and documentaries.”

With their extensive experience in this territory ITN Productions were the obvious choice as our production partner.”
