Selena Gomez’s autobiographical drama is in the works with Lifetime Channel!
Selena Gomez is set to executive produce a scripted drama inspired by her own life experiences for Lifetime, which also is executive produced by Trigger Streets Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti. The project is among the highest-profile entries on the networks development slate, which is being unveiled today in conjunction with Lifetimes upfront presentation. It also features the Shakespeare-themed horror drama A Midsummers Nightmare, which I hear has been heating up for a pickup after a year and a half in development at the network.
Search is underway for a writer to pen the untitled Selena Gomez project, which draws from the young actress experience navigating a career in Hollywood as seen through the eyes of her friends who quickly become her most trusted inner circle. The drama, which draws parallels to the HBO comedy Entourage, inspired by executive producer Mark Wahlbergs life as a young Hollywood actor surrounded by his close friends, is also executive produced by Mandy Teefey, Samantha Droke and Troy Searer for A+E Studios and Trigger Street.
