Selena Gomez used her Instagram account to share a teaser for a new Netflix series called 13 Reasons Why. For those of you wondering 'Why Instagram for a teaser?' just consider Gomez's 108 million followers — the largest following on the platform — which means the teaser has already racked up over 5 million views.
Gomez captioned the teaser as her "Passion Project", and is reportedly one of the executive producers of the show.
13 Reasons Why is based on an enormously popular young adult novel written by Jay Asher, the story of which follows a clique of 12 teenagers who gradually learn, through a series of clues, why a classmate committed suicide.
The cast includes rising stars Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, Brandon Flynn, Christian Navarro, Alisha Boe, Michelle Selene Ang, Justin Prentice and Devin Druid. It's scheduled to premiere on Netflix on March 31.
Gomez also wrote on Instagram that she and her mother were integral to the novel getting adapted by TV. Sharing a picture of herself looking thoughtful, she wrote: "This was the day I was nervous as hell going into @Netflix for the first time to talk about @13reasonswhy —my mom found this book in 2009 and worked her ass off to make it with me, guide me and tell this story authentically (the only reason, beside Jay this project was even made)."
There's no information on the soundtrack to the show, or if Ms. Gomez has any tunes being used in production — but the subject matter, the source material, and the endorsement from one of the world's biggest pop stars is sure to spark a whole bunch of Netflix and chillin' from her fan base.
