Alanis Morissette is the topic of the year, with the announcement that her recent Broadway musical (Jagged Little Pill) and HBO Max documentary (Jagged) are set to be joined by a TV sitcom inspired by her life titled Relatable – she's everywhere! 

As Variety reports, ABC is developing a single-camera comedy inspired by the singer’s life and featuring new original music penned by Morissette for the show. Relatable will depict the life of a 40 something-year-old rockstar and mother who fails to command the respect she receives on stage at home. The show is the brainchild of co-creators Elizabeth Beckwith and Christopher Moynihan, with Beckwith writing the pilot. Morissette will executive produce and also pen original music for the show.

Morissette’s 1995 album Jagged Little Pill was one of the biggest of the decade, selling over 30 million copies and producing no less than six chart-topping singles. Since then, she has added nine more albums to her catalogue and made several onscreen cameos (Dogma, Weeds).  

Earlier this year, she kicked off a world tour celebrating 25 years of Jagged Little Pill which, after being postponed numerous times due to the pandemic, will land on Aussie shores in November 2022.
