Starring and created by Criss, the show tells the oft-untold story of the songwriters behind the world’s biggest hits, with Criss and You’re the Worst‘s Kether Donohue portraying such a duo. The cast also includes John Stamos (Fuller House), Georgia King (Vice Principals) and Tony Revolori (Servant), while Amy Heckerling (Clueless) serves as director. So glad to announce that my zany little love note to the plight of songwriters, “ROYALTiES" is finally droppin' June 1st on @Quibi! Each episode will feature original songs penned by Criss. Well… Darren Criss is singing a new song at Quibi: The Glee vet’s satirical series Royalties will debut Monday, June 1 with a new “chapter” released every weekday until Wednesday, June 10. It's funny and weird and scrappy and cute and the songs are pretttty rockin if I do say so myself… Can't wait for you to get in on the wackiness! pic.twitter.com/E4J1CspgJX
