We're not the only ones fascinated by the rise and fall and rise again of Juicy Couture founders Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor. Deadline reveals that actress Mila Kunis is teaming up with Fake Empire—the folks behind Gossip Girl—to produce a TV series based on the legendary design duo's 2015 memoir, The Glitter Plan. The fashion-focused show is titled Made in LA and will air on Freeform (formerly ABC Family).
Say what you will about the LA-based, velour-loving visionaries (we're looking at you, Zac Posen), but you can't deny that the Juicy Couture story is a, well, juicy one. After all, how many people can turn a $200 investment into a global fashion empire, then sell it for $50 million?
No word yet if Skaist-Levy and Nash-Taylor (or Kunis, for that matter) will make an appearance on the show. We're hoping that they at least get JC mascot Paris Hilton to drop by for a cameo.
