'Glee' guru Ryan Murphy shopping sex show

Leave it to Ryan Murphy to find another tantalizing subject that should satiate his devoted audience.

EW has confirmed that the co-creator of Glee, American Horror Story and The New Normal is busy shopping a new script with Dexter co-executive producer Lauren Gussis that Deadline describes as a modern, provocative exploration of human sexuality and relationships.

It’s likely the project will end up on cable, where all of the good hibity-dibity seems to be happening these days. And there’s already a bidding frenzy in the works.

In fact, steamy sex series could become the next rage. In September, Showtime is scheduled to premiere Masters of Sex, a new drama starring Michael Sheen and the captivating Lizzy Caplan that’s about the real-life pioneers of the science of human sexuality. And you can’t study sex without watching someone have sex, right?

The drama was created by Michelle Ashford (The Pacific) and is based on Thomas Maier’s biography Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson.

Idina Menzel to return to 'Glee'

The great Glee onscreen diva-off will commence once again later this season. Idina Menzel will reprise her role as Rachel’s mom, Shelby, on the Fox dramedy, EW has confirmed.

Lea Michele tweeted Tuesday night that Menzel was on set. “I spy @idinamenzel at #Glee today! So excited to have my mama back!”

Shelby has created drama for lots of different characters during her previous appearances. In addition to being Rachel’s mom, she also adopted Quinn and Puck’s baby — which didn’t stop her from also hooking up with Puck last season. No word on what she’s up to this time or how long she’ll be around.

Get excited by checking out Menzel and Michele’s duet of “I Dreamed A Dream” — which shows that powerhouse vocals clearly run in the (fictional) family. READ FULL STORY

'Glee': Sue confronts Blaine about his Cheerios duties -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It looks like Sue has a pretty rigorous contract in place to keep her Cheerios in check.

In an exclusive clip from this week’s episode “Feud,” Sue reads Blaine the contract he allegedly “signed” that basically binds him to the Cheerios forever (and there’s something in there about performing at the RNC).

She also calls him a “young Burt Reynolds,” which, you know, seems pretty spot on.

'Glee': Jacob Artist previews a 'turning point' for Marley and Jake

McKinley High School’s boys are showing some skin this week on Glee. And while the show’s fans might be excited about the pec-tacular episode, Jacob Artist says that behind the scenes, the mood was anything but sexy.

“I remember when we were doing the wardrobe fittings for this episode and they said, ‘We’re going to be trying on a pumpkin,’ I was like ‘OK.’ Then I came in [and realized] it was literally just a pumpkin wrapping around my crotch,” says the actor, who plays Jake on the musical teen soap. “It was pretty hilarious. But we were all wearing really ridiculous costumes that day and got to be embarrassed together.”

Stripping down to his, um, pumpkin, isn’t the only way Jake will be exposing himself this week, however, Artist said. “Not only are we going to be shirtless but also everyone is really stripping down and showing a lot of layers of their characters.” READ FULL STORY

'Revenge,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'The Office,' 'NCIS,' 'Glee': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

Three important notices for all Spoiler Room readers:

1) Next week, I’ll be in California, so expect this column to be 30 percent less cold and bitter. 2) Don’t forget to send in your questions. (spoilerroom@ew.com) If you do — I don’t know if you know this — but all the puppies everywhere will cry. And 3) Space Jam is awesome — and so are you.

‘REVENGE’: WHO’S ON THE BOAT?
As we know, someone is going down with the Amanda. But who? We’ll definitely find out sooner than you might think.

In fact, Gabriel Mann tells me that the big reveal has already been filmed and “it’s a very touching, very action-packed” script. “It is very moving and very poignant, and let’s just say it kind of re-ups Emily’s game in a lot of different ways,” he says.

And while he couldn’t say a single thing about the victim (naturally), Mann did tease that the next few episodes will be the perfect build up. “From a personal point of view, I tend to think that Jack’s fatal flaw is his pride. He’s been keeping the goings on with the Stowaway close to the vest while Emily has been caught up in the Aiden of it all and I’ve been caught up in the NolCorp-takeover-Padma-Marco of it all. I think all of a sudden, our eyes are starting to turn back to the Stowaway and say, ‘What’s been happening here right under our nose?’ he says. “I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to have Emily and Nolan’s sights set on you with laser intensity. Nobody messes with our Jack.”

Now deep into filming the second half of the season, Mann promises that viewers will soon see all the plot points connecting. “I think the ways in which [creator] Mike Kelley has managed to weave all of these things that seem to be coming from a lot of different angles is really one of his fortes,” he says. “I think for viewers of the show — any questions that they may have had or confusion about what came up in the first half of the season will be answered very deliciously in the second half.”

Guesses? Hopes?

It’s hard to fathom but The New Normal’s cast is getting even more attractive when it returns in 2013. EW has learned exclusively that both Mark Consuelos and John Stamos will be guest-starring in an episode of the NBC comedy called “Gaydar” in the new year. Consuleos will play a grip on Sing, the Glee-esque show created by Andrew Rannells’ Bryan, whom Rocky (Nene Leakes) develops a crush on. Meanwhile, Stamos will play a coworker of Ellen Barkin’s Jane whose sexuality is questioned by the conservative grandma.

Both actors are alums of other Ryan Murphy productions — Consuelos appears on American Horror Story: Asylum this season while Stamos did an arc as Emma’s dentist boyfriend during Glee’s second year.

Best of 2012: 5 TV shows that got better

Few things are more satisfying than realizing that a TV show you love is getting better. Evolution and experimentation is built into the long-form television medium.

CHANDRA WILSON ON BAILEY’S FUTURE … AND GREY’S ANATOMY

If you read my chat with Grey’s Anatomy‘s Chandra Wilson last week, then you know that Bailey will spend the next episodes “kicking and screaming” her way to the altar. But one thing Wilson thinks might help Bailey get into the groove a bit more? If Ben put a ring on it!

“My finger is light, that’s all I’m saying. It’s very, very light,” she says, laughing. “And he used to be an anesthesiologist. You’d think there would be some sort of bling involved. But her finger is rather light — at least for 2012. So we’ll see what happens going forward.” But regardless of Bailey’s left hand gets a little heavier, Wilson says Bailey is committed. “She’s going to see [it] through,” she says. “You can’t tell somebody you’re going to marry them and then play around.”

And while Bailey and Ben could have many happy years ahead of them, as always, questions are starting to arise about Grey‘s future. Now midway though its ninth season, Wilson says she is anything but tired. And while there won’t be official word about a tenth season for several months, she says she’s personally on board. “I think the consensus is that as long as our writers want to keep writing, we’re here to keep riding the ride,” she says. “As actors, we’re very cognizant of the opportunities we’ve been given. Sooner or later it will be the end.”

'Glee': Watch the superhero-themed, super-sized trailer for 'Dynamic Duets' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Next week’s episode of Glee, fittingly titled “Dynamic Duets,” finds the New Directions crew joining Blaine’s superhero club at McKinley. The time couldn’t be better for the kids to don super identities since the Warblers return and are bent on revenge. But naturally the focus of the episode is still on music. “Seeing the popularity of this club, Fin decides to come up with a lesson called “’Dynamic Duets,’” teases co-creator Ryan Murphy. “He puts people together who are unlikely duet partners and who are not getting along, so like Marley and Kitty are together and Jake and Rider are together. There’s a lot of great superhero-themed numbers. We do REM’s ‘I am Superman,’ Bonnie Tyler’s ‘I Need a Hero,’ David Bowie’s ‘Hero.’”

EW already exclusively debuted the photos of the cast in their superhero garb. But now we can exclusively premiere a special trailer, narrated by Chord Overstreet himself, below…
