Melissa Etheridge says she’s working on a sitcom.

The show, still in development with ABC, is about “what my life might have been like had I not left to find my fame and fortune, and stayed in Kansas and became a teacher and been gay and dealt with life there,” Etheridge told Time magazine.

The two-time Grammy winner says she doesn’t want to rely on touring to make a living, and a television show would allow her to “be home for dinner.”

Etheridge, who for much of last year was fighting breast cancer, is releasing a greatest hits album and DVD this week.

Etheridge won a 1992 Grammy for best female rock vocal performance for “Ain’t It Heavy” and a 1994 Grammy in the same category for “Come to My Window.”
