Hinchcliffe remains focused for Week 9 of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ – “We’re heading into the ninth show of the season,” Hinchcliffe said. “I think everybody on the cast is starting to feel the effects of the last two months. We have two dances a week, everybody’s been on their feet almost every day for the last two months. It’s taken a toll on the body, taken a toll on the mind. But that’s when you’ve got to push the hardest. “Obviously on #TeamStopAndGo we’re still dealing with the injury that Sharna’s got to her knee and deciding who we’re going to dance with and how that’s going to go,” Hinchcliffe continued. “Ultimately we’re still working together as a team and we’re hoping that we can pull together and put together a good performance on Monday.” – Read more at IndyCar

Fox developing music business sitcom Royalties from Darren Criss – Darren Criss wants to take TV viewers behind the scenes of the music business. The theater star will co-executive produce Royalties, a new workplace comedy in development at Fox, detailing the unseen, unsung, and unglamorous heroes behind the pop stars — the producers and songwriters whose day job it is to crank out hits. Sometimes it’s sexy, but most of the time, it’s just like every other workplace: day-to-day minutiae, office politics, and clashing personalities. Royalties is about a small publishing company, Royalty Music, and a one-hit wonder who returns to the fold in the hopes of making it big again. If the show is ordered to series, Criss will co-executive produce alongside Ricky Rollins, while writers Allyn Rachel and Patrick Carlyle will serve as executive producers with The Jackal Group’s Gail Berman and Joe Earley. – Read more at Entertainment Weekly
