Duck Dynasty‘s Sadie Robertson‘s fiction book, Life Just Got Real, will be developed into a scripted series.
“I really can’t believe my fiction book is about to come to life as a scripted series! feeling incredibly grateful,” Robertson, 23, wrote.
“As always ALL glory to God and I pray God would use this show as another way to encourage people in their everyday life and bring family and friends together ????.”
The story follows two teenage girls from incredibly different backgrounds who, after being cast on a reality TV show, realize “there is more to friendship than meets the eye.”
The series marks Robertson’s debut as a producer and in addition, she will also make guest appearances on the show.
Brad Krevoy‘s Motion Picture Corporation of America will executive produce the adaptation.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Sadie,” Krevoy said in a statement. “Her energy and vision are one-of-a-kind and we have no doubt that this show will be a huge success. There is a tremendous audience that is hungry for Sadie’s special brand of family entertainment – and we’re proud to be the ones delivering this content.”
Robertson first was featured on A&E’s Duck Dynasty. And at 19, she also was a runner-up on season 19 of Dancing with the Stars.
She became a New York Times bestselling author with her first book, Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Value.
“I am so excited to jump into the world of scripted television, and to be doing it with Brad [Krevoy] who has been producing positive, inspirational entertainment for years,” she shared in a statement.
“My hope is that this would be an encouraging show for people to watch together that has an inspirational message woven within. I can’t wait to get started!”
