The show’s creators will also have access to songs from the Smashing Pumpkins and Alice In Chains, as the music will be drawn from a publishing catalog owned by BMG.

The former manager of Nirvana, Janet Billig Rich, is working on the project. According to the project, the storyline will focus on a grunge musician and the rival who may have killed him.
