Carrie Brownstein’s memoir is being turned into a TV show

The Sleater-Kinney artist will write and direct a pilot based on Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, which details her time in the 90s underground punk scene

Carrie Brownstein’s memoir Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, detailing the musician, actress, and writer’s time in trailblazing rock band Sleater-Kinney, is being turned into a TV show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hulu have commissioned a half-hour pilot titled “Search and Destroy” that will be written and directed by Brownstein. The comedy show will be loosely inspired by her time in Sleater-Kinney as well as her experiences playing in punk bands around the Pacific Northwest in the 1990s. Brownstein herself will not appear in the show, according to the report.

Brownstein recently finished work on the final series of Portlandia, and revealed that Sleater-Kinney had begun work on a new album.
