A24 Options Paris Hilton Memoir For 11:11 Media, Elle & Dakota Fanning’s Lewellen Pictures & Middle Child Pictures

EXCLUSIVE: We understand that A24 has taken the rights to Paris Hilton‘s memoir for a TV series adaptation. The deal, we hear, is said to be in the six figures.

Hilton’s entertainment company 11:11 Media, Dakota and Elle Fanning‘s Lewellen Pictures, and David Bernad’s Middle Child Pictures are producing. No writers have been set yet on the project.

11:11 Media’s Slivington Manor will produce with A24. EPs are Hilton, Bruce Gersh, the Fannings, Brittany Kahan Ward for Lewellen Pictures, and Bernad.

While details are under wraps, Paris The Memoir, published earlier this year from HarperCollins is HIlton’s personal tell-all, battling with ADHD, her rise in pop culture, her branding. In the book’s description, Hiilton writes: “I wrote this book in an effort to understand my place in a watershed moment: the technology renaissance, the age of influencers. I also wrote this book so that the world could know who I am today. I focused on key aspects of my life that led to what I am most proud of—how my power was taken away from me and how I took it back, how I built a thriving business, a marriage and a family.”

She also adds, “There are so many young women who need to hear this story. I don’t want them to learn from my mistakes; I want them to stop hating themselves for their own mistakes. I want them to laugh and cry and embrace every aspect of who they are with fearlessness and pride. We all have our own brand of intelligence, and, girl, f*ck fitting in.”

Hilton is represented by United Talent Agency while the Fannings are repped by UTA and Echo Lake Entertainment.   

Dakota and Elle Fanning’s Lewellen Pictures develops properties across film, television, and alternative media. The company, which is run by Dakota, Elle and Brittany Kahan Ward, produced Hulu’s award-winning scripted series The Great. In 2021, they released the podcast One Click with Vespucci and Cadence 13. The series provides a deep dive on internet culture and the ability of one click to change a life for better or worse. The Hulu limited series The Girl From Plainville helmed by showrunners Liz Hannah and Patrick Macmanus was released in the Spring of 2022 to rave reviews. Lewellen Pictures is currently in production on the documentary series Mastermind with co-producers Campfire Studios for Hulu, which chronicles the experience of the legendary Dr. Ann Burgess, tracing her trajectory from nurse to criminal profiler for the FBI. The company has various projects in development with MRC, Amazon, A24 and Hulu, including a series adaptation of The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda adapted by Sarah L. Walker.
