Gwyneth Paltrow is heading back to television. The actress, who previously appeared on the small screen in Glee, is teaming up with the Fox show's creator, Ryan Murphy, to star in and produce a new series titled One Hit Wonders.

Murphy divulged the details of the project in this week's The Hollywood Reporter, telling the magazine that the show will revolve around Paltrow's character, a washed-up former singer whose fate changes when a record label recruits her along with two other former hit-makers to form a new super group.

"I love this idea that there is a second act," Murphy told THR. He also revealed that the series will feature original music and focus on female empowerment. However, Paltrow will only appear in the first season as One Hit Wonders is expected to be an anthology series like his current project American Horror Story.

Murphy is still in the process of shopping the series to networks, so stay tuned for information for what's likely to be his next hit.
