Trivia

The producers were looking for a girl who could sing live, do comedy, drama, and improv. Jim Serpico's teenage sons suggested Elizabeth Gillies as they were fans of the Nickelodeon musical series Victorious. Jim didn't think a Nickelodeon actress could fit into an FX series but Denis heard her sing immediately put the preconceived notions of Nickelodeon behind them. See more »

SDRR is absolute fantastic and deserves a chance!
25 August 2015 | by caseyhayes26See all my reviews

I love this new show! It is truly a great show with comedy, music and drama, almost too much to contain in just a half hour episodes. I understand that for some people the show seems too rough, but give it a chance because there's much more to this show than at first glance. The cast is very well chosen, they all interact great. Elizabeth Gillies is such a talent, she is an amazing actress and an even better (if that is possible) singer. Elaine Hendrix is great too and the smaller characters played by Robert Kelly and Joh Ales (Bam Bam & Rehab) are the funniest. I also love that you can actually get the music of the bands they play in the series is really on Itunes and Spotify under the name of the bands: The Assassins and The Heathens. Now it's just waiting for the Gigi & Assassins to produce an album and go on tour.
