A new TV series from “Lost” and “Felicity” creator J.J. Abrams is being described as a “love letter to the diverse musicality of New York.”
The half-hour series, “Little Voice,” also involves Sara Bareilles and takes its title from her first album. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the dramedy received a 10-episode straight-to-series order from Apple.
The series “explores the universal journey of finding your authentic voice in your early 20s,” THR reports. “Bareilles (Broadway’s ‘Waitress’) will provide original music for the series, which will explore the search to find one’s true voice — and then the courage to use it. It’s unclear if Bareilles will have an onscreen role as that decision has not yet been determined.”
