Selena Gomez Autobiographical Coming To Lifetime, Executive Produced By Kevin Spacey

Selena Gomez will executive produce a new scripted drama for Lifetime, alongside Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti from Trigger Street.

The yet-untitled series will be inspired by Gomez’s life, which will draw from her experience as a young actress navigating her career in Hollywood as seen through the eyes of her closest friends. The show also draws inspiration from Mark Wahlberg’s HBO series “Entourage,” about an actor and his close group of friends in Tinseltown. 

Mandy Teffey, Samantha Droke and Troy Searer for A+E Studios and Trigger Street will also serve as executive producers. Search is underway to find a writer.
