The Wizards of Waverly Palace artist, Selena Gomez has signed up with Lifetime to produce an exclusive series based on her life. The show would be similar to HBO’s Entourage.
The show will revolve around Gomez’s life as a child star to that of a young, independent singer and actress. Her transformation will be shown from a fourth-grade school girl in Barney and Friends to that of a singer posing for seductive photoshoots.
The co-executive producers of the series include Trigger Street’s Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti, and her mom Mandy Teefey, Latin Post reports. The search for the head writer for the programme is on-going and this new production is said to be “Lifetime’s highest-profile offerings.” But during the last couple of years, the various biopics have drawn criticism like that of Whitney Houston and Aaliyah, Kate Middleton, Brittany Murphy and Anna Nicole Smith.
The latest report by Gossip Cop states that the series will not be autobiographical. Instead, the rep of Gomez confirms that show will be “one-hour, single camera drama about a group of girls navigating their coming-of-age story in the backdrop of Hollywood.” The Latino beauty is not ashamed of her upbringing in a Hollywood environment but feels pity for the coming generation of young Hollywood stars. The site also claims that the much-speculated relationship between Justin Bieber and Gomez would not be portrayed in the show.
