“Reliable follows a woman in her forties, married with three children, who spent her young adult life as an international rock star, famous for her self-written hymns of female rage and teenage angst “, We read in the synopsis of the media. “Now the ‘voice of his generation’, although deeply connected to his family, cannot really get the next generation living in his house to listen to him.”
ABC notes in the report that Morissette’s life will inform the writing and the stories, but the characters in the show are fictional and not biographical.
Elizabeth Beckwith (The Goldbergs) and showrunner Christopher Moynihan (Man standing!) co-created the driver and will write the script.
