Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Gwyneth Pal­trow (right) is set to star in Glee creator Ryan Mur­phy’s next project cen­tred around one-off hit­mak­ers from the 1990s. The pair has plans to pitch it to cable net­works later this year.

The an­thol­ogy se­ries would see Pal­trow star in the first sea­son be­fore new cast mem­bers join fu­ture runs, re­ports The Hol­ly­wood Reporter.

Mur­phy said that One Hit Won­der would see Pal­trow as a broke singer who had a hit 15 years pre­vi­ously. At her low­est ebb, she is con­tacted by a record la­bel look­ing to form a su­per­group with three other singers from her era who are equally hard on their luck.

“I love this idea that there is a sec­ond act,” Mur­phy said, adding that the show would fea­ture orig­i­nal mu­sic and would fo­cus on fe­male em­pow­er­ment.

Ac­tors Reese Wither­spoon and Cameron Diaz were pre­vi­ously linked to star along­side Pal­trow in the movie ver­sion be­fore it was can­celled.

Pal­trow has shown off her mu­si­cal prow­ess be­fore, most no­tably in the 2010 movie, Coun­try Strong, along­side Tim McGraw. The 43-year-old also starred in a num­ber of epi- sodes of Glee as sub­sti­tute teacher Holly Hol­l­i­day.
