15 Interesting Glee Facts That'll Make You Forget Other Comedy Series

The comedy-drama TV series which became a huge hit since its broadcast in 2009 has a massive fan following from all over the world. The people behind creating such an amazing show are Ian Brennan, Ryan Murphy, and Brad Falchuk, who at first considered making it as a film but then decided upon a lengthier version (thank god for that).
