Get excited, Gleeks! Darren Criss is coming back to TV with his own series (if all goes according to plan).
Criss wants to take viewers behind the scenes of the music industry in a new series for FOX, showing the unsung and usually passed by parts that go into making a pop star famous. Following the producers and songwriters who are responsible for churning out hits and making artists big stars, the show will be about the day to day responsibilities that these people have to deal with, with jokes and music added in.
It pretty much sounds like a Glee follow-up with a Nashville-esque storyline.
The show, titled Royalties, will focus on a small publishing company, called Royalty Music, and their task to make a former one-hit wonder singer relevant again.
The 29-year-old actor is reportedly going to star and co-executive produce. He is currently touring as the lead in the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
What do you think about the proposed series, Royalties? Would you watch it?
