Mandy Moore's Iconic Music Career Has Inspired an ABC Series, '90s Popstar

While Mandy Moore may have us regularly bawling as Rebecca Pearson on NBC's This Is Us, it's also important to note that she has an iconic music career to remember. And shortly after releasing her first song in more than a decade, the "When I Wasn't Watching" singer is embracing her pop-star origins in a big way.

Variety reports that ABC has bought the pilot of a series with the working title '90s Popstar, inspired by Moore's early career as a singer. The show will follow a small-town Florida family who must adapt to their new reality when their daughter becomes a worldwide superstar almost overnight. The ordered pilot will be directed by The Amazing Spider-Man's Marc Webb, who will also serve as an executive producer with Moore, This Is Us showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, and Amanda Lasher, who is also the show's creator and writer.
