Brad Falchuk ’89’s new show “Glee” influenced by his days at Beaver

@BCDSchool passed this along a few hours ago: For ‘Glee’, Brad Falchuk draws on his days at Beaver Country Day School (The Boston Globe). An excerpt:

The staff at Beaver Country Day is both amused and impressed with how Falchuk makes a living, says Peter Gow, Falchuk’s high school history teacher, who still works at the school as director of college counseling and special programs. Beaver recently gave Falchuk an award for co-creating the Young Storytellers Foundation, a program that helps fourth-graders in Los Angeles public schools create their own screenplays, and brings in famous actors for staged readings.

“He gets to poke fun at the world while doing good in it at the same time – nice combination!’’ Gow wrote in an e-mail.

Indeed.

According to Wikipedia, the Glee pilot drew about 10 million viewers when it premiered in May. A “Director’s Cut” will show this Wednesday in preparation for the kick-off of the first season the follow Wednesday, Sept. 9.
