Ricky Martin has signed a deal to develop and star in a network television series, NBC's Universal Television announced Monday.
"Ricky is an iconic superstar who is as talented as he is popular," Bela Bajaria, executive vice president of Universal Television said in a statement. "Whether he's performing before sold-out concert crowds, or starring on Broadway, where he is currently playing to SRO in Evita, Ricky connects with his audience in a very palpable way — and we are thrilled that he will be adding TV star to his incredible resume."

Gwyneth Paltrow, Neil Patrick Harris, Britney Spears and Ricky Martin — Glee has never had a problem luring A-list talent to the halls of McKinley High for guest-starring roles. And the roles of the glee clubbers' parents have been no exception. In its first three seasons, the Fox musical has nabbed comedy pioneers (Carol Burnett), Broadway vets (Victor Garber, Idina Menzel), sci-fi stars (Jeff Goldblum) and even produced an Emmy nominee (Mike O'Malley). Now that there are a new group of seniors set to rule the school — or at least the choir room — this season on Glee, could meeting Blaine's dad and Artie's mom be far behind? The cast shared their top choices to play their TV parents...
Glee, Lea Michele and Chris Colfer
The Glee waiting game is over. At least a little. When announcing Fox's 2012-2013 TV schedule, entertainment president Kevin Reilly finally gave Gleeks a glimmer of what Season 4 will look like following the New Direction seniors' graduation. Instead of selfishly making Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) hang around McKinley next year like Lima losers, the show will follow the duo to a performing arts school in New York — where they'll run into the likes of Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker — while also still keeping up with New Directions. But will the show be able to pull it off? We look at why this approach may or may not succeed...
Our top moments of the week:
13. Lamest Dirty Talk: It took time, but The Bachelor's Jamie finally decides she's going to kiss Ben. Despite being a self-proclaimed prude, Jamie straddles Ben and tells him exactly how she is going to plant one on him. But she doesn't stop there. She keeps flapping her gums, even while the two are kissing, which just makes Ben laugh. If first kisses say it all, then it seems clear why Jamie didn't get a rose.
12. Best Surrender: Realizing he lacks the duende (read: passion) to get the job done, Mr. Schue steps down as McKinley High's Spanish teacher to give the...
Vanessa Lengies, Ricky Martin and Naya Rivera
Ricky Martin made his Glee debut Tuesday and the "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer proved not only that he's sexy and he knows it, but also showed himself to be a guest star with mucho potential.
Martin played David Martinez, the night school Spanish teacher who can sing, dance and roll his Rs so fast it makes Mr. Schue's head spin. After David explained the advantage of learning foreign languages through song, and shared his own hopes to start a night school glee club, Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) welcomed David to New Directions to help...
If the notion of getting "Lost in the Amazon" and finding yourself in a weekly horror movie has any appeal, then by all means set your compass for ABC's The River, the most exciting thing to happen to TV's midseason since, well, Monday's premiere of Smash on NBC. If Smash is a show-stopper, The River is a terrifying heart-stopper, a cleverly cinematic supernatural adventure that takes us on a wild ride into an exotic heart of darkness. (It opens with back-to-back episodes Tuesday at 9/8c, and the second hour is even scarier than the first.)
Glee, Ricky Martin
Olé, olé olé! The hormones of McKinley High's students are in overdrive as Ricky Martin makes his much-hyped guest appearance as a Spanish teacher on the February 7 episode of Glee, which may be the naughtiest episode yet. Among the zingers that dropped my jaw:
Heather Morris, Ricky Martin and Harry Shum Jr.
Ricky Martin is wiggling his way to Glee and he's not doing it quietly.
In a sneak peek at Tuesday's episode, airing at 8/7c on Fox, Martin's character isn't afraid to show his passion ... for music and performs a bumping (and did we mention bilingual) rendition of LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It."

Although we've heard this song about 167 too many times on the radio recently, we'll hand it to...
