John Legend to Co-Produce Amazon Series Inspired by Sandra Bullock's College Years
John Legend will executive produce a new Amazon series loosely inspired by actress Sandra Bullock's college years, alongside fellow co-producers Akiva Goldsman and Bullock herself, it was announced Monday.
Taking place in the American deep south in the '80s, the series will be a dramedy set in the world of music and dance where a young woman defies expectations and seeks out community and her own identity. The show will touch on drag culture, mental health and the AIDS epidemic while following a group of young outcasts.
This won't be the first time the "All of Me" singer has ventured into the television and film world. Legend is currently a judge on The Voice and has also served as executive producer for the a cappella-focused docuseries Sing It On and the animated short film Crow: The Legend.
The Originals writer K.C. Perry is slated to write and executive produce the project. Amazon has yet to reveal any details on a release date.
