What’s it about?
Zoey Harris has never been one to indulge in the arts, let alone listen to much music at all. After stress headaches from her demanding tech job prompt her to get an MRI, Zoey leaves the doctor’s office experiencing a strange phenomenon: everyone is singing. Or at least they appear to be to Zoey, who soon realizes she’s now picking up on other people’s subconscious emotions in the form of song. Her strange new power turns out to be a blessing and a curse, but at least she’s finally got some music in her life.
Paul Feig originally intended to direct the pilot but is too busy with features. He remains an executive producer.
