Selena Gomez is stepping behind the camera.
The singer-actress shared an eerie first look of her upcoming “passion project,” Netflix’s teen drama series, 13 Reasons Why, via her Instagram on Wednesday. The 13-episode series, which she executive produces (her first major producing credit), premieres Friday, March 31.
Based on the best-selling 2007 YA novel by Jay Asher, 13 Reasons Why follows Clay Jenson (Dylan Minnette) as he returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside, he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), his classmate and crush, who committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah references 13 people who may have contributed to her decision to end her life, and so the story begins.
Kate Walsh, Brian D’Arcy James, Derek Luke, Brandon Flynn, Justin Prentice, Alisha Boe, Christian Navarro and Tommy Dorfman round out the ensemble cast. 13 Reasons Why is directed by Spotlight’s Tom McCarthy, written by Next to Normal’s Brian Yorkey and executive produced by Gomez, Joy Gorman, Yorkey and Kristel Laiblin.
Last March, ET spoke with Gomez -- who was originally set to star as the female lead -- about stepping behind the camera as an executive producer as she broadens her career scope.
“My mom [Mandy Teefey] and I are actually producing a few projects together. 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,” Gomez told ET. “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.”
13 Reasons Why premieres Friday, March 31 on Netflix.
