Darren Criss To Executive-Produce, Star In and Write Songs For Musical Comedy Series "ROYALTIES" for Quibi

New Series Marks First Project from FOX SideCar Entertainment

Logline: From the mind of Emmy & Golden Globe Award-winning actor and songwriter Darren Criss comes ROYALTIES, 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.

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.

Writers: Darren Criss, Nick Lang, Matt Lang

Executive Producers: Gail Berman, Hend Baghdady, Joe Earley, Darren Criss, Matt Lang, Nick Lang, Ricky Rollins

Production: FOX SideCar Entertainment will produce ROYALTIES, which marks the company's first sale since its formation in February.
