Ryan Murphy, fellow 'Glee' writer pitching half-hour comedy

ryan-murphy-gi-320.jpg Ryan Murphy has two shows on the air at the moment and is trying for a third.

The "Glee" and "American Horror Story" co-creator is about to begin shopping a half-hour comedy project. He's teaming up with "Glee" co-exec producer Allison Adler on the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The premise for their project is unknown at this point. They're set to begin pitch meetings with all the networks on Friday (Oct. 7).

Whatever the show is, it's Murphy's first stab at a half-hour comedy since a 2002 pilot for The WB called "St. Sass." Adler, who joined the "Glee" staff this season, has a more extensive half-hour resumé, having worked on "Family Guy," "Just Shoot Me" and "Still Standing." Her credits also include "Chuck" and "No Ordinary Family."
