The Royalites Plot:

Royalties follows the ascent of a ragtag songwriting duo – Sara (Kether Donohue) 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.”
