Entertainment Mandy Moore Teams With 'This Is Us' Showrunners for '90s Popstar' Drama Based on Her Career
Demi Moore Lets Her Guard Down
LOS ANGELES — A few days after I visited Demi Moore in her home high above Beverly Hills, her daughter Tallulah Willis told me, “My mom was not raised, she was forged.” But the woman who greeted me from atop a staircase, in the boxy residence she calls her “peaceful Zen treehouse,” and asked if I was chilly or needed a jacket, was not the steely star whose movies, like “St. Elmo’s Fire,” “Ghost” and “A Few Good Men,” helped define the 1980s and ’90s.
ABC has given a put pilot order to the drama "90s Popstar" from executive producer Mandy Moore.
The project, inspired by Moore's early career as a singer, centers on a family from small town Florida who must adapt to their extraordinary new reality when their teenage daughter goes from aspiring singer to pop superstar practically overnight.
"The Bold Type's" Amanda Lasher will write and executive produce the project, which reteams Moore with "This Is Us" showrunners Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, who are also onboard to executive produce.
Marc Webb is attached to executive produce and direct the project, which hails from 20th Century Fox Television. Adam Londy of Aptaker and Berger's The Walk-Up Company and Regina Lee of Moore's Roll With The Punches Productions will also serve as executive producers on the project.
