Carrie Brownstein’s memoir is set to be turned into a new TV show on Hulu.
You may know Carrie Brownstein from the band Sleater-Kinney or from the TV show Portlandia. You might even know Brownstein from her 2015 memoir Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl.
Hulu have recently announced that her memoir is due to be turned into a new half-hour TV show. The book shared tales from Carrie’s experience in the rock band, documenting her life in the music industry.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will be titled Search and Destroy and follow “a young woman, a band and a community learning how to be unafraid of their own noise.” The show is also expected to see Brownstein write and direct the series.
Airing on Hulu, the show will join an already-impressive line-up which includes the recent award-winning success story that is The Handmaid’s Tale.
The pilot will be executive-produced by Brownstein along with Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle, and Ali Krug. The pilot is being produced by Annapurna Pictures.
2018 is already set to be a busy year for Brownstein. The eighth season of Portlandia starts on January 18th on IFC, whilst she will also be seen on the big screen in Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara.
