Tegan & Sara have announced that their memoir, ‘High School’, is being turned into a TV series.

The show is being made for Amazon-owned ad-supported video streaming service IMDb TV. Based on the twin sister pop duo’s 2019 autobiography, the show promises to be a coming of age story “told through a backdrop of 90s grunge and rave culture”. It will be produced by the duo alongside Clea DuVall, in partnership with Amazon Studios and Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment.

In a statement, Tegan & Sara say: “We are incredibly excited to be working with Lauren, Ryan, and the fantastic IMDb TV team to bring ‘High School’ to life and apologise in advance to our mother for forcing her to relive this period of time with us again. We’ve made casting suggestions on her behalf to the incomparable Clea DuVall and our wonderful partners at Plan B”.

DuVall adds: “I am grateful to Plan B, Amazon Studios and IMDb TV for their partnership in bringing Tegan and Sara’s beautiful and complex memoir to life”.

No transmission date has yet been announced for the show.
