Chris Colfer is taking it upon himself to craft his own TV comeback. The out actor and author has teamed with Sonar Entertainment to develop a pilot for the sci-fi drama Indigo that he would write, direct and star in. ‘Very excited for this! Fingers crossed,’ Colfer wrote on Instagram Friday (17 February).
Indigo would be a far cry from Colfer’s Emmy-nominated role of gay high school student Kurt Hummel on Glee.
Indigo explores the mysterious world of Indigo children — those who are misdiagnosed but wildly believed to possess extraordinary paranormal abilities — and the dark forces working to exploit their powers, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The pilot will be shopped to broadcast, cable, premium and streaming services.
