J.J. Abrams, Bareilles Team For Amazon Series 'Little Voice'

June 6, 2018

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Amazon is ordering a comedy-drama series from J.J. Abrams that will feature original music by Sara Bareilles.

"Little Voice" is described by Amazon as a romantic tale of searching for one's true voice as a young adult.

The show received a 10-episode order, Amazon said Wednesday. The cast and the release date were not announced.

Abrams, whose credits include "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Lost," will serve as executive producer for "Little Voice."

The Grammy-nominated Bareilles earned a Tony Award bid last year for her music for "Waitress."

She and Josh Groban will host Sunday's Tony ceremony, airing on CBS.
