Amazon is developing a series loosely inspired by Sandra Bullock’s college years, Variety has learned.

Bullock will executive produce the series along with Akiva Goldsman and John Legend. K.C. Perry will write and executive produce. The series is described as a dramedy set in the world of music and dance. It will take place in the American deep south in the 1980s, where one darkly off-beat young woman defies expectations and sets out in search of love, community, and an identity of her own.

Idea - Series - Conversations - Bullock - Goldsman

The idea for the series is said to have come from conversations between Bullock and Goldsman. Goldsman then brought in Marja Lewis-Ryan and Legend’s Get Lifted Film Co. to further develop the idea as a series. Lewis-Ryan is now focused on the “L Word” revival at Showtime and will therefore serve as consulting producer on the Amazon project. Goldsman and Legend previously collaborated on the WGN America series “Underground.”
