J.J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles preview LIttle Voice
I feel incredibly lucky to be here today, to get a chance to collaborate with Sarah whose music has moved me for years, and with Apple is an actual thrill.
A couple years ago, I ran into JJ, and we talked about my experiences as a singer/songwriter, the struggles, the drama, the insanity, and he asked if I had ever thought about creating a series about that world.
I had not at all but I heard myself say yes J.J.
of course I have.
Sarah Barellis is a liar.
That's the message I hope to communicate today.
We brought in Jessie Nelson, Sarah's writing partner on the Musical Waitress.
We're talking about music but also about that terrifying feeling absurdly wonderful and often embarrassing time when as a young person you venture out into the world for the first time.
So this is the beginning of our new series, little voice.
A funny romantic show about the reality of what is hard and wonderful and transformative about being a young woman who has to ultimately find her voice as an artist But also as a person through music.
Sarah of course might be lying to you, so.
[LAUGH] Okay I'm not lying.
The main character is a promising flawed young woman, a musician living in New York.
In and around a vibrant community of young hopeful artists, family, and friends Soulmates and bandmates learning to find herself and her own true voice.
Anyone who has ever given everything they have to go after a dream, will feel like this show is written for them.
And how lucky for the series, Sarah not just a creator and producer but also composer.
The theme song says it all.
