It looks like the Disney Channel has finally jumped on the GLEE bandwagon. The children's network is reportedly creating a musical television series of its own, which is tentatively titled Madison High.

Lester Lewis, who's credits include The Office, will write the new series.  The plot will revolve around high school students who are trying to restore their theatre program to its Glory Days.  Unlike GLEE, the series will feature original songs and dances.

Disney Channel is an American basic cable and satellite television network, with its headquarters located on West Alameda Ave. in Burbank, California. The channel is owned by the Disney-ABC Television Group division of The Walt Disney Company under Disney-ABC Television Group President Anne Sweeney. Disney Channels Worldwide is a global portfolio of more than 90 kid-driven, family inclusive entertainment channels and/or channel feeds available in over 160 countries and 30 languages. The platform brands are Disney Channel, Disney XD, Playhouse Disney, Disney Cinemagic, Hungama TV and Radio Disney. Disney Channels Worldwide is currently run by President Carolina Lightcap.

The channel specializes in programming for children through original series and movies, as well as third-party programming. It is marketed mostly toward young children, with the exception of their weekend primetime block that is aimed at pre-teens and teenagers ages 9-15, and The Playhouse Disney programming block that is aimed at children ages 2-5; however, in recent years the diversity of viewers has increased with an older audience, typically teenagers, young adults and young families.
