The series is being described as a “dramedy set in the world of music and dance, which will take place in the American deep south in the 1980s, where one darkly offbeat young woman defies expectations and sets out in search of love, community, and an identity of her own. “Darkly offbeat” aren’t necessarily the first words that come to mind when thinking of America’s sweetheart, but what the hell, let’s go with it.
But this is the first time that Bullock will dip her toes in the world of prestige television, the latest example of the steady migration that movie stars have made to the small screen.
As Variety points out, this isn’t Bullock’s first foray into television; she previously served as executive producer for George Lopez’s self-titled ABC comedy series.
Variety is reporting that Bullock and Amazon are developing a series that’s “loosely based” on Bullock’s formative years as a college student.
This is going to be good. https://t.co/WWAPO7YCXj— W magazine (@wmag) June 11, 2019
