The marketing campaign features special initiatives to get fans involved in the GLEE experience, including an online-exclusive trailer featuring interactive fan elements, broadcast promotions, an open casting call and exclusive premiere screenings.

Additionally, original cast interviews and content pieces will available online at fox.com.

GLEEks are encouraged to show their glee all week long on their social networking pages by changing their avatars to pictures of themselves posing with GLEE's signature loser "L." For GLEEks who need help with their Facebook page updates, status quotes from McKinley High's crew - including Sue Sylvester and Kurt Hummel - will available on the GLEE Facebook fan page -www.facebook.com/glee - along with new photos starting Monday, April 5. Additionally, GLEE themed Facebook "gifts" will be available for free so keep an eye out for trophies and try to avoid slushies from your fellow GLEEks.

GLEEks can go to fox.com beginning Wednesday, April 7 to recreate the fun of a real photo booth by "posing" with their favorite characters from the show and uploading the photos to Facebook to share with friends and family.

On Wednesday, April 7, the cast of GLEE will be on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" for a fun-filled hour of behind-the-scenes secrets, revealing interviews, unseen backstage moments and a show-stopping performance.

Los Angeles residents will get a special treat on Saturday, April 10 when GLEE takes over The Grove with a free outdoor screening of the spring premiere episode and the debut of the GLEE fountain show. GLEE fans can also find additional screenings in select markets.

And coming soon - the GLEE app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad! You can still be part of the club, even if you aren't on the show! Sing along to your favorite GLEE songs (from the actual soundtrack), record your voice and share it with your friends. Sign up now for more information at www.fox.com/glee.

MySpace users who log into their personal homepages on Tuesday, April 13 will see a first-ever animated takeover where Rachel becomes their profile picture and Sue pops out to shout a tune-in message about the show's premiere that night, all while blowing parts of the page away.

Also, amateur and professional performers still have the opportunity to submit an audition video for the GLEE open casting call at www.myspace.com/gleeauditions.
