This new three-part TV series from Investigation Discovery is exploring the deaths of three of the young stars of “Glee,” which are tragic in very different ways.

Actor Cory Monteith died in 2013 of an accidental drug overdose. At the time, the show was still airing and the fifth season featured an emotional episode called “The Quarterback,” which dealt with the death of Monteith’s character Finn Hudson.

In 2020, coincidentally on the seventh anniversary of Monteith’s death, actress Naya Rivera’s body was recovered after she drowned while saving her son during a boating excursion.

In 2018, actor Mark Salling died by suicide after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography charges, which were expected to result in Salling serving a prison sentence of four to seven years.

“The Price of Glee” aims to explore the “endless scandals, tabloid gossip and fatal tragedies [that] plagued the rising stars on what was supposed to be the most joyful show on television,” according to the ID press release.

It continues:

“The Price of Glee” unpacks the cast members’ lives on and off set through never-before-seen interviews showcasing the demands of being on a hit TV series and dark behind-the-scenes drama. With unbiased filters, hear directly from those outside of the cast bubble who can provide no-strings-attached perspectives, such as: relatives and friends of “Glee” cast members; those who were on the set and close to it such as set decorators, hairdressers, stylists and publicists; and entertainment reporters who covered the phenomenon.

Interviews from those close to the late Cory Monteith shed light on the actor’s journey to international acclaim and the demons that haunted him, which led to his overdose at just 31 in a hotel room in British Columbia. Those who worked on set and alongside Mark Salling provide commentary into their working relationship and shock of the dark and disturbing discovery of child pornography in Salling’s possession that led to his death by suicide at 35. George Rivera, father to Naya Rivera who he lost in a chilling and mysterious death by accidental drowning in a lake, gives a personal and intimate tribute to his daughter by taking a look back into Naya’s life as a young actress and how her career took off, showcasing her journey from child actor to cheerleader.

Part I is titled, “New Kids on the Lot” and its description reads, “Cast and crew recount the rise of ‘Glee’ and reveal for the first time how sudden stardom and the unrelenting pressure of making a hit show can have tragic consequences.”

Part II, which airs immediately following part I, is titled, “The Show Must Go On,” and its description reads, “With chilling tales about the dark side of fame and fortune, friends and researchers reveal ‘Glee’ star Cory Monteith’s final moments.”

Part II, which airs immediately following part II, is titled, “When the Music Stops,” and its description reads, “Misfortune plagues the legacy of ‘Glee’ leaving cast and crew wondering whether their hit show is cursed, or if misery is the cost of success.”

“The Price of Glee” premieres on Monday, January 16 at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on Investigation Discovery.
