Selena Gomez Lifetime Show NOT Autobiographical, Despite Reports
Selena Gomez’s Lifetime show is not autobiographical, despite a slew of reports. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this. We’re told it’s about a group of girls coming-of-age against the backdrop of Hollywood.
While Gossip Cop previously noted that the proposed series is “fictionalized,” places like Entertainment Weekly completely dropped the ball and reported that Gomez was producing a show “about her life for Lifetime.” The outlet further wrongly noted that the show “will recount the young starlet’s meteoric rise from fresh-faced teen to Hollywood smash.” Naturally, a slew of disreputable sites conjectured whether her relationship with Justin Bieber would be among the show’s plots.
But none of this is true. Gomez’s rep confirms to Gossip Cop that the untitled series is 100 percent “not autobiographical.” Instead, we’re told the scripted show, if picked up, would be a “one-hour, single camera drama about a group of girls navigating their coming-of-age story in the backdrop of Hollywood.” Gomez will executive produce the show, along with Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, Samantha Droke, and her mom, Mandy Teefey.
In addition to this project, Gomez may produce a show for Freeform about a Latina teen, who’s determined to become successful despite growing up poverty-stricken. She’s also producing a Netflix series adaptation of the book 13 Reasons Why Not. For the time being, though, Gomez will be on her Revival World Tour, which kicks off on May 6.
