We were hooked after just the short trailer but now the first official cast shot has dropped and we're more pumped than ever! If you never quite got over being robbed of Gossip Girl
, this show's gonna 100% fill that gaping void in your life.
Based on the novel by Rebecca Serle
, Famous In Love
follows college student Paige Townsen (Bella), who lands the role of a lifetime in a Hollywood blockbuster. Her entire life changes in an instant and she has to learn how to deal with it all, especially her love life... something Bella herself understands pretty well IRL.
"I think Paige will struggle a lot with who she is and everybody wants her to be," she said at a press tour recently. "I’ve been there, and I’ve done that its not a fun road to go down — to look at yourself in the mirror and have absolutely no clue who you are."
"The media, for Paige especially, since she falls in love with three maybe four characters, will make her seem like she’s this and that or she’s a hoe or she’s whatever," Bella continued.
"She’s just a young girl who’s thrown in this business and has no idea what she’s doing. Just because she’s photographed with somebody, they’re dating. This happens all the time — I’m photographed with someone and they’re like, ‘Boyfriend! Girlfriend!’ immediately."
