The Glee Project
The Glee Project was a reality series in which twelve contestants were competing for a role with a 7-episode story arc on Glee. A series of competitions stood in the way of the final decision.

Over 10 episodes, the contestants are paired down through a series of “homework assignments” orchestrated by the Glee creators that assesses their singing, dancing, and acting. Those from the Glee team who make the final decision on the winner include writer Ryan Murphy.

Cast members also make appearances as guest mentors in each episode to help guide the contestants and offer their expertise. Each episode includes a homework assignment and a music video shoot. The winner of the homework assignment receives the starring role in the week's music video as well as one-on-one time with the guest mentor from the Glee cast. The second season of The Glee Project premiered on June 5, 2012.

The Glee Project was canceled on July 16, 2013.[1]
