ABC working on Alanis Morissette-inspired sitcom – The Music Universe.

A sitcom loosely based on Alanis Morissette’s life is in the works at ABC. Deadline reports the show will be called Relatable and parody the 90s rocker’s family life with fictional characters and non-biographical stories. Morissette will executive produce and pen new original music for the sitcom.
The single-camera comedy follows a married woman in her 40s with three kids after spending her young adult life as an international rock star singing self-penned anthems of female rage and teen angst. The mother is now deemed the “voice of her generation,” but can’t quite get her kids to listen her.
The show will be produced by 20th Television, Thruline Entertainment and Morissette’s management company, Crush Music. The show stems from The Goldbergs supervising producer Elizabeth Beckwith and Marlon co-creator Christopher Moynihan. Beckwith will write and co-create the pilot.
Last year, Morissette celebrated the 25th anniversary of her monstrous Jagged Little Pill debut that made her a cultural phenomenon and a critical smash, upon its release in 1995. The album has now been certified 17x platinum by the RIAA selling more than 33 million copies worldwide, making it the 16th best-selling album of all time in the US.
In 2019, Morissette’s musical, Jagged Little Pill, made its Broadway debut in New York City featuring lyrics by Morissette and music by Morissette and 6x Grammy winner Glen Ballard. The play is a breathtaking new musical inspired by the themes and emotions revealed in Morissette’s album of the same name.
Earlier this summer, Morissette released her highly anticipated ninth album, Such Pretty Forks In The Road, on CD and vinyl.
Later this month, Morissette will wrap the first leg of her 2021-2022 world tour which included stops across North America, Europe and the UK. The Australia, New Zealand and Philippines leg of the tour has been moved to November 2022.
She will be the subject of the HBO documentary film, Jagged, which debuts Thursday, November 18th at 8 pm ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max. The film takes viewers back to 1995, when a 21-year-old Alanis Morissette burst onto the music scene with the first single off her ground-breaking album, Jagged Little Pill. With a rawness and emotional honesty that resonated with millions, and despite a commercial landscape that preferred its rock stars to be male, she took radio and MTV by storm and the album went on to sell 33 million copies. Featuring an in-depth interview with Morissette, as well as never-before-seen archival material, Jagged explores her beginnings as a young Canadian pop star, the rocky path she faced navigating the male-dominated music industry, and the glass ceiling she shattered on her journey to becoming the international icon and empowered artist she is today. Jagged is directed by Alison Klayman (The Brink, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry) and executive produced by Simmons.
