Morissette is perhaps best known for her 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill,” which has sold over 30 million copies and inspired the Broadway musical of the same name. Since then, she has released nine more albums and contributed music to numerous productions while also appearing onscreen in several projects. In August 2021 she kicked off her world tour celebrating 25 years of “Jagged Little Pill.”

Beckwith is currently a supervising producer on the hit ABC comedy “The Goldbergs.” She also wrote for the ABC comedy “Speechless” and has penned pilots for USA Network, Fox, Sony, and Fox21. She is the author of the comedic parenting book “Raising The Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation.”

Moynihan previously penned the script for the NBC pilot adaptation of the Kevin Hart comedy feature “Night School.” He was also the co-creator of the hit NBC comedy “Marlon.” His other credits include “Man Up!,” “St. Francis,” and “100 Questions.”

Beckwith is represented by CAA, Thruline Entertainment and attorney Jamie Feldman. Moynihan is represented by Rothman Brecher Ehrich Livingston, Thruline Entertainment and attorney Chris Abramson. Morrissette is represented by WME, Crush Music, The Lede Company and Jacqueline Sabec.
