London: The popular musical TV drama 'Glee' is set to pay tribute to late pop icon Michael Jackson in an episode. The episode, to be broadcast Jan 24, will centre around some of Jackson's biggest hit records, similar to previous episodes dedicated to Britney Spears, Madonna and Fleetwood Mac.

According to TV Guide magazine, producers are planning to show 12 songs of MJ and are writing the script with plans to shoot the first half before Christmas, reports a website.

However, the second half will be completed when the actors return in early January. According to the insiders, Jackson's family have given 'their enthusiastic support' for the project.
