Deadline reports that Goldsman specifically sought out Legend to both help develop the series, and shape its unique soundtrack, which will feature an "ambitious fusion of multiple genres of music from the period, including 80's pop, timeless Southern gospel, and opera".

John Legend and Akiva Goldsman are set to executive produce along with Bullock, with the very idea for the series coming from conversations between long-time friends Bullock and Goldsman.

For the moment, the project (which doesn't yet have a title) is in the scriptwriting phase and Amazon has just begun work on it - if it's officially commissioned, it'll be screened on the Amazon Prime Video platform. Ryan, showrunner on Showtime's The L Word: Generation Q, will be a consulting producer on the Amazon project.
