On Thursday, Gomez shared a photo of herself to Instagram, which she took the day she first pitched the project.
“This was the day I was nervous as hell going into @Netflix for the first time to talk about @13reasonswhy -my mom found this book in 2009 and worked her a** off to make it with me, guide me and tell this story authentically (the only reason, beside Jay this project was even made),” Gomez captioned the photo.
In the pic, the actress, who does not star in the Netflix series, has her head down on the table and is wearing a white top, gazing seriously at the camera.
The series is set to air on Netflix on March 31, but it has been a long time in the making. Gomez was originally set to star in the show, but handed over the part of Hannah Baker to Katherine Langford.

“My mom [Mandy Teefey] and I are actually producing a few projects together,” Gomez told ET last March. “It’s something we’ve always loved to do, creating content that inspires people, that moves people. Why I love filmmaking, why I love making music is because it affects people. That’s something I’ve always wanted to be a part of -- whether I’m in it or not, I want to make things great.”
