Melissa Etheridge Shares Trailer For ‘I’m Not Broken’ Docuseries


Grammy-winning star Melissa Etheridge recently released a trailer for Melissa Etheridge: I’m Not Broken, offering viewers a glimpse at the upcoming two-part Paramount+ docuseries.

The trailer shows Etheridge putting on a rocking performance for women at the Topeka Correctional Facility.

“The best I can do is to be a light that holds these people up and says, ‘You matter,'” she says in the trailer.

I’m Not Broken tells the stories of five different women currently behind bars at Topeka Correctional Facility.

According to the trailer, about half of the 172,000 women imprisoned in the U.S. are recovering from substance abuse.

“A lot of women in this prison, they keep making the same mistakes. I lost my son to an opioid overdose. It is an epidemic,” Etheridge says in the trailer. “I mean, I know your experiences. My whole intention with the concert is to lift people up. I’ve been working on this for weeks and weeks, so know that when you hear this song tomorrow that you all are in that song.”

The docuseries “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,” a press release says.

“Melissa Etheridge works to understand and interrupt the cycle of addiction while connecting with these women who, so often, are forgotten by society,” the release continues.

The two-part docuseries will stream on Paramount+ beginning on July 9.
