13 Reasons Why comes from executive producers Tom McCarthy, Brian Yorkey, Selena Gomez, Joy Gorman and Kristel Laiblin. The series, created by Brian Yorkey, of Broadway's Next to Normal, and executive produced by Selena Gomez.If you’re wondering why Gomez is a producer, she was originally set to play Hannah in a Universal film adaptation of the novel back in 2011.
"I was actually going through a really difficult time when they started production," the singer told reporters at a Netflix press event."I went away for 90 days, and I actually met tons of kids in this place that were talking about a lot of the issues that these characters are experiencing."
Yorkey added, "Jay wrote this book that was incredibly, incredibly tragic and that was dark in so many ways, but ultimately was hopeful and ultimately, I think, about bringing light back into the world. I think it's an experience that ultimately is bringing light to very difficult and dark topics in a very difficult and dark time." (via The Hollywood Reporter)
