LOS ANGELES (AP) — The zestfully titled, song-and-dance filled “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” has an unlikely origin. The NBC series, about a young woman who channels other people’s thoughts through pop songs, was inspired by the devastating illness of creator Austin Winsberg’s father.

In the months before a rare neurological disorder claimed Richard Winsberg’s life in 2011, the 68-year-old architect who had been engaged in a full, active life was left immobilized and unable to speak.
