The Alanis Morissette renaissance is making its way to the small screen. ABC is developing a sitcom titled Relatable, which is loosely based on the family life of the ’90s rock legend.
The single-camera comedy follows a 40-something woman, married with three kids, who spent her young adult life as an international rock star, famous for her self-penned anthems of female rage and teen angst. Now the “voice of her generation,” though deeply bonded with her family, can’t quite get the next generation living in her house to listen to her.
Morrissette will pen original music for the show and serve as an executive producer, with her life “loosely” informing the writing and stories — though the characters will be fictional and non-biographical. Elizabeth Beckwith (ABC’s The Goldbergs) and showrunner Christopher Moynihan (Man Up) co-created the pilot and will pen the script.
Additionally, the Broadway musical inspired by Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill is back up and running at the Broadhurst Theatre. Tickets are available here.
