The series, produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, moves back and forth through multiple generations to tell a dramatic story centered on a mystery discovered by a young woman after she moves back to her childhood home in 1959 Detroit.

“We have always been intrigued by the prospect of doing a Showtime musical series, but only if the songs could add to the depth and complexity of a great character drama,”said President of Entertainment at Showtime Networks Inc., Gary Levine.“Nobody does that better than Pasek and Paul and Marc Platt… so when they came to us along with a global superstar like Alicia, a talented writer like Kyle, and excellent producers like Adam and R.J., we were all in.”
