"That presents a whole lot of new challenges," says Geoff Bywater, senior vice president of music at 20th Century Fox TV, which produces the show. Unfamiliar tracks can be a tough sell for audiences, says Bywater, but "one thing we really did learn on Glee, as much as we tried, is that trying to get a cover single [on the radio] is difficult.
"It was the first time ever that I got a phone call from standards and practices before I even recorded a note," Bywater says. "They wanted to make sure they get a chance to see the lyrics. We're taking it right to the edge." Timbaland's team recorded the show's tracks in Miami and Philadelphia, with vocals done in Chicago (where the cast filmed the show). Empire writers will send the music producers a scene description, with a producer usually getting on the phone with song writers to talk though what a sing needs to say or do to tell a story. "Those notes taken and considered when the song is put together," Bywater says.

And if all that works, we should do a tour,â€â€™ says Geoff Bywater, head of the music department at 20th Century Fox Television. The “Glee Live! In Concert!†tour will travel for two weeks and hit Phoenix, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. Ticket prices range from $35 to $94, depending on the market. All five of the New York shows at Radio City Music Hall have sold out, Bywater says, and the fourth and final Los Angeles concert sold out in 30 seconds after sales went live. (“I’ve never even been to Radio City Music Hall before,†says actor Kevin McHale, who plays the paraplegic Artie.)
Plans are already in the works for another, longer “Glee†tour to follow the show’s second season in 2011; Bywater says they’ve been offered dates in arenas. “One of the promoters called me and said, ‘Geoff, you have the hottest ticket in the country,â€â€™ he says. “It’s good to hear that, but we have to make sure we deliver.†TV shows have spawned tours before.

Rather than keeping the pilot a secret, Fox presented it to as many music publishers and record labels as it could to get them on board for clearances from the get-go, said 20th Century Fox Television head of music Geoff Bywater.
"We haven't been turned down by one songwriter," Bywater said.
