    Darren Criss To Topline New Musical Comedy Series

    Darren Criss is set to star in, executive produce and write songs for Royalties, a musical comedy series for Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman’s shortform video platform Quibi. The series will be produced by Fox’s Gail Berman-led SideCar — the company’s first sale since its February launch.

    Royalties is a satirical take on the oft-untold story of songwriters behind the world’s biggest hits. It follows the ascent of a ragtag songwriting duo – Sara and Pierce (Criss) – as they navigate the strange and hilarious challenges of creating a truly great song, week after week.

    Each episode will feature real-life entertainment personalities portraying fictitious (and ridiculous) music stars, along with original songs penned by Criss.

    Criss is co-writing and executive-producing the series with longtime collaborators Nick and Matt Lang, fellow co-founders of YouTube sensation Team Starkid. Berman, Hend Baghdady, Joe Earley and Ricky Rollins also executive produce.
