Lou Pearlman TV Series in Development Following Disgraced Boy Band Producer's Death
By Jennifer Drysdale
Lou Pearlman’s tarnished legacy will live on.
A week after the disgraced Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC manager died, Magnet Management and Conde Nast have acquired the rights to a recent article about Pearlman, intending to develop the story as a limited series for television, ET confirms.
"Next is really just finding the right fit of who can tell the story in the best way," Magnet Management producer Jon Kanak reveals to ET. "We've had a number of high level writers and directors reach out. Right now it's just about finding the right fit."
Whether Pearlman's former clients, including the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, O-Town and others, will have any involvement in the series is still unknown.
While his acts (all except US5) ended up suing the boy band impresario for misrepresentation and fraud, many expressed mixed reactions to his death.
