Most actors have talent and interests in other aspects in the industry, and Selena Gomez isn't any different. This multi-faceted chick is set to executive produce the new Netflix TV show 13 Reasons Why, based off the popular young adults novel.
Although she isn't attached to star, Gomez will help get the story of Jay Asher's bestselling book come to the screen. 13 Reasons Why follows teenaged Hannah Baker, who commits suicide and leaves behind cassette tapes that explain her reasoning behind ending her life.
The project is executive produced by Mandy Teefey, Kristel Laiblin, Anonymous Content, and apparently Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Brian Yorkey wrote the pilot.
Congratulations to Gomez on her new venture in the world behind the camera. I find it admirable when actors try their hands at being apart of the crew of a film, as it deepens their perspective of the film industry.
I can't wait to see who they cast as the actors for this series!
