Elizabeth Gillies stars as “Gigi,” a young singer who recently moved to New York for one reason – to get famous. She hired The Heathens rock band because she didn’t want to waste six months of her life auditioning tragically hip, Brooklyn douchebags. Smart at the age of 21 and hell-bent on making it, Gigi steeped herself in NYC rock-and-roll history. Her mom was a backup singer for The Heathens back in the day, so she grew up following the brief success and continuous fallout of her estranged father’s band. Wanting to recapture that kickass 1992 sound in a new contemporary voice, Gigi formed The Assassins and decided to mine Johnny’s remaining brain cells for songwriting gold. Now, the sky’s the limit and she’ll do whatever it takes to get there. Johnny and Flash may think they’re in charge, but Gigi knows better. This is most definitely not a man’s world anymore.
