Amazon is developing a series loosely inspired by Sandra Bullock’s college years.

Bullock will executive produce the series along with Akiva Goldsman and John Legend. K.C. Perry will write and executive produce.

The dramedy series, set in the world of music and dance, takes place in the American deep south in the 1980s, where one off-beat young woman defies expectations and embarks on a journey of love, identity, community.

The idea for the series is based on 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.”
