`Glee` to dedicate an episode to Spears

Los Angeles: The makers of hit musical comedy drama `Glee` are planning to dedicate one full episode to pop diva Britney Spears.

"We are writing a Britney Spears episode," hollywoodreporter.com quoted Ryan Murphy, creator of the TV show, as saying.

However, it was not clear whether Spears, 28, would also appear in the episode planned for the new season which starts in the fall.

"Glee", which won 19 Emmy nominations Thursday, based two episodes earlier this year on the music of Madonna and Lady Gaga but neither of the singers appeared on the show.

"Glee", about a struggling high school show choir that sings cover versions of pop, Broadway and hip-hop tunes, was one of the most-talked about TV programmes of the last year.
