LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Glee" star Chris Colfer is taking his talent behind the scenes.

The heart and soul of the Fox juggernaut is currently writing the script for a Disney Channel pilot, "The Little Leftover Witch." The concept is based on Florence Laughlin's children's book, which tells the tale of a witch who is taken in by a new family after her broom breaks and she drops out of the sky.

Colfer, 20, will join his "Glee" castmates in New York next week to film the show's season finale before heading out on tour with many of them this summer. He is also on board to write and star in the independent feature "Struck by Lightning."
