‘Glee’ Films Drug PSAs, Lea Goes Back to Work

Very little information has been released concerning how “Glee” will deal with the exit of Cory Monteith’s character on the show, other than the fact that Ryan Murphy says Cory’s character will deal with drug addiction.

Now, however, Fox president Kevin Reilly says that the cast will also film Public Service Announcements about the effects of drugs and alcohol.

The majority of "Glee" fans are young kids, so it is smart of the show to address drug addiction.

The PSAs will reportedly “speak directly with the audience” and all proceeds from music from the third episode will go to a fund in Monteith’s name.

The Fox boss also added that “Glee” only went back to work after Cory's passing because Lea Michele gave them the okay, that it was alright to keep working.

“She is an extraordinary human being,” says Reilly. 

Speaking of Lea, her first day back on the "Glee" set was today. She tweeted, "First day of Glee today. And at my wardrobe fitting for Rachel Berry for Season Five! I've missed her so much!"
