London: Anne Hathaway may soon appear on hit TV series Glee.

The show's creator Ryan Murphy approached the Devil Wears Prada star and offered her a role in the show at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

The actress is a longtime fan of the all-singing, all-dancing programme, and last year revealed she wants to play a long lost relative of Chris Colfer's gay character Kurt Hummel.

Hathaway's suggestion has now been accepted by Murphy, who agreed to let the actress appear in the show when he saw her at the award ceremony in Los Angele.

"It is true. She said it in the press that she wants to play Chris Colfer's lesbian aunt. She walked by our table (at the Golden Globes) and we have a mutual friend and I said, 'Do you really want to do it?' And she said, 'I do.' And I said, 'OK, we're gonna do it,'” the Daily Star quoted him as telling Access Hollywood.

"I think we'll do it probably in a month and a half or so... I have to talk to Anne about what she wants to sing. I'm sure she has ideas," he added.
