Juicy Stories, Scripted Series Based on Juicy Couture Founders, Coming to E! [WWD]
Juicy Couture isn't just getting revived on the retail scene, it's also getting picked up for the small screen. E! has ordered a scripted pilot titled Juicy Stories, inspired by founders Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor's memoir titled The Glitter Plan (co-authored by The Hollywood Reporter's Booth Moore). The series, which will be narrated by Skaist-Levy and Nash-Taylor, will focus on how the duo started their business in Nash-Taylor's one-bedroom apartment in 1997; grew in popularity with its celebrity-loved velour tracksuits; and became a billon-dollar company at one point. Michael Patrick King and Amy B. Harris will serve as executive producers, and Skaist-Levy and Nash-Taylor will act as producers.
