The 20-year-old actor has reportedly written a pilot for the Disney Channel called, "The Little Leftover Witch" — based on the children's book of the same title by Florence Laughlin — according to the site.

The series, which is about to begin shooting, centers around a little witch who was welcomed into a family after crash-landing on her broom, Deadline reports.

In addition to the Disney pilot, Chris also penned an indie comedy titled "Struck By Lightning," which he will reportedly shoot over the summer after wrapping production on the second season of "Glee" and joining the cast on tour, according to the site.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the small screen star was revealed as one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world on Thursday, alongside many Hollywood notables including Amy Poehler, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, Colin Firth, "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner and Matt Damon.

"Glee's" Dianna Agron spoke highly of her co-star, telling the mag, "Chris, 20, lives by extreme truth, speaking out against the epidemic of bullying that he, too, faced in high school. The honesty that he infuses into his 'Glee' character, Kurt, leaves you reeling."
