In addition to her guitar work with seminal Olympia, Washington rock act Sleater-Kinney, Carrie Brownstein’s also been a major player in television over much of the last decade. Portlandia, the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning TV show she stars in and co-writes with Fred Armisen is sliding into its eighth and final season this year. She’s also essayed a role in the critically-acclaimed drama Transparent as well as made appearances on The Simpsons, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Now, as Portlandia wraps up, Brownstein’s set to begin work on her next TV project, a half-hour pilot for Search and Destroy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series is “loosely inspired’ by Brownstein’s 2015 memoir Hunger Makes A Modern Girl and is “about a young woman, a band and a community learning how to be unafraid of their own noise.”

In addition, Brownstein also revealed, in a recent interview with Billboard, that Sleater-Kinney were back in the studio, working on new material. However, she wouldn’t specify a timeline, saying, “we’re going to do this very slowly”. (Remember, the last two Sleater-Kinney albums – 2005’s The Woods and 2015’s No Cities To Love came out a decade apart.
