First it was the Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill. Next on the docket, Alanis Morissette is turning her life into a television comedy.
Produced by ABC, the Disney-backed broadcast network has inked a script deal for Relatable: a single-camera comedy inspired by the family life of the Grammy-winning Jagged Little Pill singer-songwriter.
Relatable follows a 40-something woman, married with three kids, who spent her young adulthood as an international rock star, famous for her self-penned anthems of female rage and teen angst. Now the “voice of her generation” can’t quite get the next generation living in her house to listen to her. ABC notes Morissette’s life will inform the writing and stories, even though all the characters in the show are fictional and non-biographical.
Morissette will serve as an executive producer and pen original music for the show. Relatable hails from Disney’s 20th Television, Thruline Entertainment and Crush Music. Thruline’s Willie Mercer and Ron West will also executive produce alongside Crush Music’s Jonathan Daniel. Last but not least, Elizabeth Beckwith (ABC’s The Goldbergs, Speechless) and showrunner Christopher Moynihan (Man Up, Marlon) co-created Relatable's pilot episode and will pen the rest of the script.
In other Alanis Morissette news, the singer-songwriter released her 10th studio album last year and hit the road with a tour in 2021 to celebrate Jagged Little Pill's anniversary. Her musical of the same name scored 15 Tony nominations and won two. Morissette also judges the Fox competition series Alter Ego.
