Variety has reported that Amazon is currently working on a television series based on Sandra Bullock’s years in college.
Along with John Legend, Akiva Goldsman and KC Perry, Academy Award-winning actress Bullock will be involved in the series as an executive producer. With a few musical numbers, the series is set in the 1980s about a woman who sets out to explore who she really is, while learning about love and community along the way.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “the show will feature music and dance and traverse the worlds of drag culture, mental health and the AIDS epidemic while following a group of young outcasts who band together and dare to be themselves”.
The idea of starting the show came from a conversation Bullock had with Goldsman, after which they brought in producer Marja Lewis-Ryan and Legend’s production company Get Lifted Film Co. Lewis-Ryan is said to be a consulting producer and Legend has previously worked with WGN America series Underground.
Bullock has acted as executive producer for TV series George Lopez in the 2000s and Netflix film Birdbox. (vit/wng)
