The actress is bringing the famed velour tracksuits back to a TV screen near you...
Juicy. Couture. Two words you probably haven’t heard uttered since 2006 when you couldn’t hit your local shopping centre or walk your dog without seeing tribes of girls in the brightly-coloured, too-tight tracksuits. Heck, we were these girls. And now in a hallmark to our youth, Mila Kunis is actually bringing back the Juicy Couture brand. Well on TV, at least.
According to Deadline, Mila is set to executive-produce a comedy TV series about the founders of Juicy Couture (Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor), called Made In L.A. The show which will be adapted from the best-selling memoir The Glitter Plan, written by the fashion duo in 2014, which detailed how they started Juicy Couture with just $200 and grew the business to become a global brand that they eventually sold for $50 million.
Mila is pairing up with with Gossip Girl creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage with her company Orchard Farm Productions for this project.
She’s proved herself as a credible actress in Hollywood for some time, rising to stardom on That 70s Show with Ashton Kutcher (who she’s just had a baby with) back in the early noughties and since starring in hit films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Black Swan. And judging from her success in front of the camera, we’re hoping this book-to-TV adaptation will be worth the watch – although there’s no word yet about when it’s set to hit our screens.
What do know however, is that Made In L.A. will be released in half-hour episodes on Freeform (part of the ABC network in the US) and will have – we hope – a nostalgia-inducing wardrobe that will probably result in velour trending again all over the world. Ok maybe not, but we might dig out our own baby-pink set to get into the spirit whilst watching the show.
And in case you’ve erased the images of the cosy velour tracksuits from your mind, feast your eyes on these celebs sporting the brand circa 2006.
