Brad Falchuk ’89, co-creator and writer of the hit Fox show Glee, talked to Boston Magazine about the show and how his experiences at Beaver influence the show.
How much does the high school in Glee resemble the one you went to?

Obviously Beaver is nothing like McKinley High — a big school in the middle of Ohio — but there seems to be a uniform experience of being a teenager: the joy and excitement and possibility and horror of it. A lot of the characters are also named after my friends from high school, which they get a kick out of.
