(Oct. 7) Canadian music duo Tegan and Sara reflect on their early years in their memoir ‘High School.’

Tegan and Sara‘s teenage hurdles are headed to the small screen.

The Calgary-raised pop duo has inked a deal to adapt their 2019 memoir “High School” into a television series through Brad Pitt‘s production company Plan B Entertainment.

Representatives for the musicians say the coming-of-age story will follow twin sisters as they navigate identities separate from each other against the backdrop of 1990s grunge and rave culture.

The foundation of the story comes from Tegan and Sara Quin’s own lives as recounted in “High School,” which explores the personal relationships that led them to eventually pursue a career in music.

“Argo” and “Girl, Interrupted” actress Clea DuVall, who directed Tegan and Sara’s music video for “BWU,” will executive produce, write and direct the pilot episode.
