Real-life couple Lea Michele and Robert Buckley are now joining forces on screen in addition to their off screen lives. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the couple are set to star in a new Hulu anthology series entitled Dimension 404, which is a six-episode show that is inspired by the internet’s 404 code, which we all know is the code that says something can’t be found. The series will look into some of the questions that arise from the situations.
Michele will play Amanda in one of the episodes, a girl who turns to an online dating company to find love after a bad breakup with a boyfriend. Buckley will play Adam, a guy who falls for Amanda while they’re both on the dating site.
For Michele, it seems as though life could be imitating art, as she and her ex-boyfriend Matthew Paetz broke up unexpectedly at the beginning of the year, according to Us Weekly.
But rest assured, Scream Queens fans, Michele is still going to have her role as Hester in the Fox comedy for its second season, which she confirmed to Extra back in March.
Michele is known for her roles as the original Wendla in Spring Awakening on Broadway, her role as Rachel Berry on Fox’s Glee and her role as Hester on Fox’s Scream Queens. Both Glee and Scream Queens are produced by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuck and Ian Brennan. For her role on Glee, she won the Teen Choice Awards for Choice TV Actress: Comedy in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
For her role on Scream Queens, she’s also been nominated for a Teen Choice Award.
Buckley is known for his role as Clay Evans in The WB/The CW drama One Tree Hill. He joined the cast in the seventh season and quickly became a fan favorite character and entered into a fan favorite couple with Quinn James (Shantel Vansenten). He currently stars in The CW’s iZombie as Major Lilywhite, Liv’s ex-fiance.
Dimension 404 will have six episodes that are each an hour in length and each episode will feature a different plotline. The show was created by Dez Dolly and Will Campos and was co-created by Dan Johnson and David Welch. The show is executive produced and directed by Freddie Wong, Matthew Arnold and Dolly. Dolly also serves as the showrunner.
A release date for the show has yet to be announced.
