Selena Gomez is going behind the scenes for her next project…
Netflix has given Anonymous Content and Paramount Television’s 13 Reasons Why, executive produced by the 23-year-old half-Mexican American actress/singer, a straight-to-series order.
The show, based on the New York Times bestselling Young Adult (YA) book by Jay Asher, was created by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Brian Yorkey, who also wrote the pilot.
13 Reasons Why is the second Netflix straight to order series for Anonymous Content. The first is the Plan B collaboration The OA, which goes into production next quarter.
Gomez recently wrapped four films: In Dubious Battle, directed by James Franco; The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving, alongside Paul Rudd; The Big Short, starring Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale; and Seth Rogen’s Neighbors 2.
Most recently, she reprised her role as Mavis in Sony Pictures’ Hotel Transylvania 2, which opened to record-breaking box office.
She is not starring in 13 Reasons Why.
As a recording artist, Gomez has sold more than 22 million singles worldwide, and her new album Revival debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. She will embark on a global tour next year.
