Temple Hill Entertainment has acquired screen rights to "L.A. Candy," the best-selling debut novel by Lauren Conrad, ex-star of reality series "The Hills" and "Laguna Beach."
Temple Hill partners Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey ("Twilight") will produce. Conrad will be executive producer through her Blue Eyed Girl Productions banner. The book, published in June by HarperCollins, has been on the New York Times’ best-seller list for 14 weeks.
Informed by Conrad’s experiences, "L.A. Candy" tells the story of a 19-year-old who moves to Hollywood, quickly finds fame as a reality series star and then has to deal with the ramifications of living a fishbowl life. Conrad plans to write two more books on the reality travails of protagonist Jane Roberts.
