At the young age of 23, Selena Gomez is already proving to be something of a renaissance-woman. On Wednesday (April 20) it was announced that Gomez is slated to produce a Lifetime series based on her life story. The yet-to-be-named program will be co-executive produced by Kevin Spacey and Gomez' mother, Mandy Teefey

Per Rolling Stone, we learn that the show will focus on much of Gomez' "trusted inner-circle," and that the Lifetime Network is incorporating the scripted-series into its new slate of "Fempire" programming, which will also feature shows with Ronda Rousey, Serena Williams and Janet Jackson. There is no premiere date for the Selena Gomez show as of yet. 

Selena is ramping up preparations for her 2016 Revival Tour, which will promote her latest record, also called Revival. For the tour, she's got some fly merch that actually sticks to your body and songs from the record that debuted at no. 1 last October

The forthcoming Lifetime series is the second television project Gomez is co-producing. Earlier this month, it was announced that the starlet would play a role behind the scenes in a forthcoming Freeform drama about growing up in a Latino household in Los Angeles.
