- Los Angeles, Aug 4 (IANS) Actress Lea Michele is reportedly working closely with the producers of TV musical comedy-drama series "Glee" on Cory Monteith's tribute episode.
The 26-year-old wants to ensure that the episode dedicated to her ex-boyfriend is perfect.
"The producers are still going back and forth on what they want to do and clearing music for his tribute," hollywoodlife.com quoted a source as saying.
"The meetings are lengthy and Lea is a part of them to make sure everything is just right. It's still touch and go for all involved. Tears can and will happen. When they start filming the episode, everyone is going to be a mess. After they film that episode, they are going to go on a break to recharge," added the source.
Monteith passed away July 13 in his room at Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver. He died due to an overdose of a mix of alcohol and heroin. He was 31.
The actor battled drug addiction throughout his teens and first entered rehab at the age of 19. His character, Finn Hudson, will be written off the show in the third episode of the upcoming fifth season, which will deal with drug addiction.
