The Glee series in the 2000s established itself as a cultural and musical phenomenon and catapulted an almost entirely new cast into the firmament of international stars, literally revolutionizing contemporary pop culture and generating discussions on sexuality, race, disability. But this show was also at the center of an endless series of scandals, tabloid gossip and, last but not least, fatal tragedies that engulfed the actors in what had established itself as a true television ‘Ode to Joy’.

The exclusive series Curse of Glee (original title The Price of Glee) reveals just what lies behind the illusion of fame and success of one of the seemingly happier shows, which however has not managed to escape the dark side of Hollywood. An investigation that analyzes the intense media pressure that has invested the protagonists once they have conquered celebrity status and sheds new light on the terrible tragedies that have hit the world of Glee. The story of the life of the cast members on and off the set unfolds through unpublished interviews and testimonies of those who were directly involved behind the scenes of the production, entertainment journalists, friends and family of the protagonists.
In particular, the story focuses on the three tragic events that most marked the show: the death of actor Cory Monteith, found lifeless from an overdose at the age of 31 in a hotel room in British Columbia; the suicide of actor Mark Salling, who took his own life at the age of 35 following the child pornography scandal that hit him; the incident of the actress Naya Rivera, drowned during a boat trip on the lake while she was on a trip with her little son, told through the memory of her father George.
