Mike Novick, a television producer and a friend of Brennan’s from Los Angeles, was a member of the same gym as writer and producer Ryan Murphy, and gave him a copy of Brennan’s script. Murphy had been in a show choir while at college, and as such felt he could relate to the script. Murphy and his Nip/Tuck colleague Brad Falchuk suggested that Glee be adapted to a television show format. The script was entirely re-written, and was picked up by Fox within 15 hours of being received. Murphy and Falchuk became the show’s executive producers and showrunners, while Brennan is a co-executive producer and Novick is a producer. Brennan, Falchuk and Murphy write all of the show’s episodes, and were nominated for two 2010 Writers Guild of America Awards for Glee, with nominations in the “Comedy Series” and “New Series” categories.
