ABC is developing a sitcom titled “Relatable”, which is loosely based on the family life of the ’90s rock legend Alanis Morissette. The proposed 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 write original music for the show and serve as an executive producer. Elizabeth Beckwith (“The Goldbergs”) and showrunner Christopher Moynihan (“Man Up”) co-created the pilot and will pen the script. “Relatable” is produced 20th Television in association with Thruline Entertainment.
