Selena Gomez Will Produce A New Netflix Series Based Off A Popular Book

Selena Gomez has had quite the year, and it looks like she's still going.

The 23-year-old singer just released her album Revival earlier this month, but now she has more big news to share.

Variety reports Gomez will be the executive producer of a new Netflix series based off the best-selling young adult book "Thirteen Reasons Why."

The story follows a boy named Clay who receives a shoebox filled with cassette tapes from Hannah Baker, a high school student who committed suicide.

Gomez apparently read the book and then brought it to Anonymous Content for a screen adaptation. Gomez's mother, Mandy Teefey, and producer Kristel Laiblin will be executive producers as well.

The series will have 13 episodes, and I couldn't be more excited.

The show will be Gomez's first big executive producing role, although she did serve as an executive producer on the TV-movie "The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex."

It looks like she's come a long way since her days on "Barney & Friends." This series seriously cannot come soon enough.
