The Glee Project premiered on OXY on June 12, 2011. This series will find and train a group of phenomenally talented performers who will compete against each other to win a role on the hottest show on television. From thousands of entries, and after a nationwide talent search, Robert Ulrich, the casting director for "Glee," will uncover a unique group of artists from both professional and amateur backgrounds. In the true spirit of "Glee," every underdog who has been waiting for the right opportunity to showcase his/her talent now has a fighting chance. The hopefuls will be narrowed down through intensive rounds of workshops, "Glee"-themed assignments and call-backs as a team of "Glee" insiders carefully assess which one of them has what it takes to be the next new face, and voice, of "Glee." The stakes are enormous - a prize that money can't buy - a multi-episode guest starring role on "Glee," and a genuine shot at fame and fortune for a talent who truly deserves it.
