Darren Criss To Star in Quibi Musical Comedy Series, Royalties

Center Theatre Group's 2019 Gala: A Grand Night - Arrivals

Darren Criss is making moves! The Assassination of Gianni Versace actor has his next gig, and it's starring in an all new musical comedy series show, Royalties. It will be part of the shortform streaming platform, Quibi.

Not only will Criss be starring in the show, he will also be executive producing and writing songs.

According to Billboard:

Royalties is described as a "satirical take on the oft-untold story of songwriters behind the world’s biggest hits. The show 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."
The series will also feature real-life music personalities playing fictional (and ridiculous) pop stars who work with the two lead characters and original songs written by Criss.

Quibi will be launching its platform in the spring of 2020.
