Lifetime has been killin' it lately. Along with the tearjerkers we know and love them for (don't even pretend you don't), the network has also gone weirdly dark/meta (remember Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell's movie?) and hilariously insightful (ahem, UnReal). And now, they'll add a Selena Gomez biopic series to their lineup. 

Entertainment Weekly confirms that Selena has signed a deal with Lifetime to produce a series that "will recount the young starlet's meteoric rise from fresh-faced teen to Hollywood smash." Actor Kevin Spacey, producer Dana Brunetti (from The Social Network), and Mandy Teefey (Gomez's mom) are set to produce alongside her. The series is still untitled—though IMHO really any of the songs off Selena's latest album would work ("Survivors," "Revival," "Me and My Girls," "Perfect," etc. etc.).

While it may seem like a 23-year-old's life doesn't have enough material yet for an autobiographical movie, Gomez has been acting since she was 7, grew up around other Disney starlets, and had to find her own path—all while dealing with romance speculations (#Bieber), body image issues, and Lupus. So, yeah, on second thought—there's definitely enough there.
