Melissa Etheridge Docuseries ‘I’m Not Broken’ Headed To Paramount+

Paramount+ has announced a two-part docuseries, “Melissa Etheridge: I’m Not Broken,” will premiere on the streaming service later this year.

The docuseries centers on the Grammy-award winning rock star and activist penning an original song inspired by letters sent from incarcerated women in her Kansas hometown.

“Melissa Etheridge: I’m Not Broken” tells an inspiring story of healing and transcendence through the power of music when five female residents from the Topeka Correctional Facility, a women’s prison in Kansas, write letters to Etheridge that she uses as inspiration to create and perform an original song for them.

Having recently lost her son to opioids, Etheridge works to understand and interrupt the cycle of addiction while connecting with these women who, so often, are forgotten by society.

Additionally, the docuseries explores themes of female incarceration, redemption, substance abuse, generational trauma, grief and healing.

“I’m excited for audiences to join me on this powerful journey and hear these remarkable stories filled with pain and struggle but also hope and healing,” said Melissa Etheridge. “I hope that this docuseries shows viewers the challenges that women face in our prison system while also serving as a resource to those who currently are struggling.”

“Melissa Etheridge: I’m Not Broken” is directed by Brian Morrow and Amy Scott, and produced by Jonathan Lynch for Shark Pig Studios.

Meanwhile, Etheridge will serve as a presenter at the CMT Music Awards, to be held on Sunday.
