Dreams do come true for Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Rachel Bloom, co-creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a hit series for the CW. She signed on to write the script for a movie about two *NSYNC superfans at Sony Pictures label TriStar—inspired by an idea from a band member and producer Lance Bass.
The project is about real-life best friends Meredith Sandberg and Winter Byington, who spent a summer following *NSYNC on their last world tour.
Superfans Sandberg and Byington were first noticed by Bass 20 years ago when they appeared on TRL.
Bass is producing the project through his eponymous production label with Cindy Cowan for Cindy Cowan Entertainment. Shary Shirazi, the VP of Production, and Nicole Brown, the President of TriStar Pictures, oversee the studio’s project.
“I’m so excited to work on this road trip musical that will explore the nature of early 2000’s nostalgia and if the past was, indeed, actually better. Also, I GET TO WORK WITH LANCE BASS!” said Bloom.
Bloom has appeared in feature films like Most Likely to Murder, The Angry Birds Movie 2, Trolls World Tour, and Changeland. Bloom is very talented when writing music that become earworms that fans and non-fans alike will listen to all day long.
