Lea Michele to co-star with new beau in sci-fi drama

Actress Lea Michele is set to star alongside her new boyfriend Robert Buckley in an online sci-fi drama series.

The former Glee star went public with her blossoming romance last month (May16), when she was spotted on a dinner date with Robert in Santa Monica, California.

Reports subsequently suggested the pair had been quietly dating for a couple of months, and now Lea and the One Tree Hill hunk are preparing to play out their relationship onscreen after signing up to feature in Dimension 404, a six-episode anthology drama on streaming service Hulu.

Lea will portray Amanda, a woman who turns to online dating to help her get over a bad break-up, while Robert will play her suitor, Adam, who confesses his love for Amanda a little too soon.

The series' title is a nod to the Internet's '404' error code, with the show aiming to explore the weird side of the worldwide web.

A launch date has yet to be revealed.

Lea has yet to directly address her relationship with Robert, but last month (May16), the 29-year-old struggled to hide her glee as she was quizzed about her love life.

"You know, I'm just feeling really great right now and super happy," she said coyly, while trying to avoid questions about her love life. "I feel very, very, very lucky and grateful in my life right now and that's all that matters."

The romance news emerged just three months after Lea broke up with former boyfriend Matthew Paetz in February (16), after two years together. She also previously dated her Glee co-star Cory Monteith, who died following a drug overdose in 2013.
