Emmy nominee Darren Criss sure is pluggin’ away.
The erstwhile curly haired heartthrob of TV’s Glee has been glittering away as Hedwig on Broadway and beyond – I saw him in San Francisco last month, and lemme tell ya...the kid can work dem platform heels! – and, now, he’s getting back into the TV-meets-music game.
Criss is going to co-executive produce a new workplace comedy titled Royalties for Fox.
The show will revolve around the unseen and unsung heroes behind the pop stars we know and love – or, at least, the fictional version of some of ’em. Y’ know, the writers and producers and marketing people. The machine behind the talent.
Our way in as viewers will be the one-hit wonder who gets all prodigal and returns to the company in order to score a big hit once again.
