Per Rob,
"
This episode is set in the third season of the show.  I started writing it when I went on hiatus for Army Wives and after the penultimate episode of Glee's second season aired, with deadlines looming in just two weeks!  I couldn't even wait for the finale to air if I hoped to get it done in time.  Glee is a serialized show, too, but it often has self-contained, thematic stories that apply to the ongoing, twisting personal relationships of the students in the club and the faculty at the school.

There are already things that don't track with what the show will be in season three... for instance, I use Chord Overstreet's character, Sam Evans, in a minor capacity and he is now—unexpectedly—off the show!

Since I submitted the script to various programs right, but won't hear back for a little while, I'm including the first act to give you a taste.  In a few months, I'll publish the rest.

One of the issues with spec scripts can be "what if the person reading it doesn't know the show?"  To counter that, I decided to piggyback on something the show occasionally uses: voiceover.  In the opening moments, Mercedes walks through the backstage of the auditorium thinking about her lack of a love life and fills the reader in on the love lives of the other members of the Glee club (while, in the action lines—the stage directions and description that is not dialogue—I give a little information on the kids' personalities) in the hopes that someone who doesn't watch the show can still follow along.  The show also employs a highly-stylized "previously on" section, so I also decided to start the script off with one to help set the stage.

A note about Glee scripts: the show itself does not write in the choreography or most the lyrics.  After all, they get to record the music and film the performances!  I just had the written word to work with, so needed to write lyrics (as well as some incredibly basic stage moves) out, both because I wanted to choose songs where the lyrics applied to the story (you'll see that in both song selections in this act) and because I couldn't assume a reader was familiar with any of the songs I chose."
