Lilikoiluv posted this in another thread.  Thanks for posting this news about Royalties here, Lilikoiluv!   We appreciate your keeping your eyes open for news about Darren's TV project and bringing that news over here!  :hug   applause   :thank you

Gah! I dunno how to get the image to show  from my kindle, so here's the link:

"Royalties" script!



Sorry that I didn't do this earlier, Lilikoiluv.   I just opened a new thread for Royalties.     You can copy your post here.  :happy face

P.S. Be careful and be sure to delete all emoticons in tweets or instagram messages.  If you don't delete emoticons in twitter or instagram messages, then everything in your text box/your post (your comments, other pics and videos ) that follows after the twitter/instagram emoticons will disappear (an issue with Forumotion code).  So in Patrick Carlyle's instagram, you would need to delete all the emoticons that follows his name.

I'll go ahead and post the exciting instagram message. 

0oooooh.   Very exciting!  :big grin   applause

This is Patrick Carlyle's instagram.  He is one of the writers connected to Royalties!    This is definitely a good sign!   thumbs up   I wonder if this means they got the greenlight to film the pilot/a pilot was ordered? :fingers crossed :fingers crossed :fingers crossed



P.S. Sorry the captions under the pic above is confusing.  All that followed after Patrick Carlyle's name in his instagram message were various emoticons and I had to delete them.  Warning to everyone:  If you don't delete emoticons in twitter or instagram messages, then everything in your text box/your post (your comments, other pics and videos ) that follows after the emoticons in the tweet/instagram will disappear (an issue with Forumotion code).



Lin, it looks like all your detective skills added up and are coming true!   Great job!  clapping hands

No problem, Poppy.  Thank you! I'm so happy that we are now at the point of "Royalties" having its own thread!  thumbs up

Thanks for the reminder, Poppy. I would have totally forgotten that. And thank you for posting Patrick Carlyle's instagram pic and caption!

Yes! Thanks for sharing the fruits of your detective skills with us, Lin!  It's been so interesting and exciting following the trail you started!  applause bow to you

It seems that a pilot, at least, has been ordered, right? I need tumblr CSI to refocus the blurred out corner for us.  It looks like there is a 2017 date on the last line. Perhaps a production date? I also wonder what the difference is between the black binding and red binding for the scripts--could it be cast vs. director/crew? :very confused

So excited for Darren and the rest of the team involved with this show!  :amused

OT: As you can probably tell by my overuse of emoticons, I'm back on my regular computer.  lol.

Hi Lilikoiluv!

Oh, you're right of course!   I didn't even look at the small print at the bottom left corner of the pic.  Good thinking, Lilikoiluv!   You are also using your detective skills.   If you come across the tumblr CSI, can you please post it here?   Maybe they can bring the small print into a clearer image.

Yes, I would think that this means that a pilot was ordered to be filmed/produced.   :fingers crossed  (I'm wondering why isn't Darren tweeting?)

I see on the top line of the fuzzy print at the bottom left corner:    The first word (top line) appears to be "FOX."  Then:   "The Jackal Group," which if I remember correctly, was the production group named in the media articles about Royalties.

I could be imagining it, but on the second line, the first word appears to be "Pilot."  Can't make out the 2nd word of the second line.  The third word of the second line appears to be "Draft."

And you're right of course, Lilikoiluv!   The third line appears to be a date.  It's awfully fuzzy.  I think I see the "17" at the end.  Not sure about the first 4 numbers, guessing "02-14"?   Maybe the date for the cast to do a reading?  I have read several articles where they say the filming of pilots usually happen February - April, usually March - April, so maybe it is a film date, as you said.  :fingers crossed :fingers crossed

And your logic seems good, in terms of the black binding versus the red binding.  thumbs up


Remember this, you guys?  Lin and Lilikoiluv posted this (November 23 and November 18, respectively) about the Jackal Group folks, along with Jonathan Gabay (Vice President of comedy development and programming at FOX) and both writers (Patrick Carlyle and Allyn Rachel) seeing Darren in Hedwig.

Late reply, but I think the two writers who are attached to the project, Patrick Carlyle and Allyn Rachel, are in the picture as well.

//Edit after some quick stalking:
Three of the other people are Gail Berman, Joe Earley and Dani Gorin of The Jackal Group, the production company that is developing Royalties. Not sure who the remaining three are, but how nice that they all went to see Darren together!

Hm, I'm not sure this confirms that a pilot is going to be filmed. I'm pretty sure the blurry part says "First Network Draft", so I think that means FOX still needs to approve? I can't make out the number that follows, but I assume it's the date the draft was finished.

But for what it's worth, Ricky replied with a praise emoji. :happy face

Thanks for your comment, Lin.  :happy face

You could make out more than I can of the second line.  I thought the first word was "Pilot."  But it does look more like "First."  So if it says "First Network Draft,' then it does suggest it's not ready for filming/production yet.   And thanks for pointing out that Ricky posted a comment on the instagram by Patrick Carlyle.  

I don't know.  In short, I'm not familiar with the process, except what I read in articles, and that's in broad terms.  So I'm just not sure what the pic means, in terms of the status of the project.


I'm still very happy to see the instagram pic by one of the writers of the script. applause   Hopefully, we hear more this month.  Cross fingers we get some confirmation of the pilot being ordered/filmed.  :fingers crossed

Darren mentioned Royalties during an interview focusing primarily on Computer Games.  It sounds like it still may be a possibility (maybe not for this Fall, but maybe for the following season)?   I had wondered if because Darren had a 4-5 month commitment to film Versace, then that meant Royalties could not be developed for this season since Darren would be unavailable.

DARREN AND CHUCK CRISS OF COMPUTER GAMES ON MAKING MUSIC AS BROTHERS AND EMBRACING CHEESY DANCE MUSIC.

05/11/17

What other projects have you guys been working on? Chuck, have you been working on any other musical projects since Freelance Whales? Darren, have you been working on any TV projects since Glee?

[. . . ]

Darren: Before Glee, my main squeeze was my group Starkid. Basically, out of college, my big break was an internet comedy group that changed my life. Starkid was my musical, creative outlet. That's when I realized I could be a songwriter for a living, which is why I eventually ended up writing songs for Glee. The last songs I wrote was right when I joined Glee. That was the last Billboard record I had. Anyway, that was my outlet for writing songs. Right after Glee, I have a singer-songwriter EP in the can, which I'm waiting to put out later this year. I was originally going to put out the singer-songwriter EP at the same time I put out the Computer Games EP. After being absent for a while, I didn't want to confuse fans or people who weren't familiar with myself, to focus on one thing at a time. I have a TV pilot I've been in development with for a while. There's a lot percolating. That's also why it was important to get Computer Games out, because it's only three songs. We thought it was cool to put out the songs, tour and let it incubate before we put out a full-length. We're using the "figuring it out as we go" model.
