Chris Colfer's life just got a whole lot more Gleeful.

The Golden Globe-winning "Glee" star has been hired by the Disney Channel to write a pilot for a children's show called "The Little Leftover Witch," based on a book by Florence Laughlin. It's actually his second new writing job; he'll write and star in "Struck By Lightning," a coming-of-age indie comedy.

It'll continue to be a busy year for Colfer. His "Glee" star Kurt Hummel has taken center stage this season, transferring to a private school and starting a relationship with Blaine, played by Darren Criss. He'll also perform with the cast of "Glee" this summer in their nationwide tour.
