EXCLUSIVE: Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, creator and co-executive producer of MTV’s new series Sweet/Vicious which will premiere in November, has just been set to adapt the funny and irreverent book Hold My Gold: A White Girl’s Guide to the Hip-Hop World.
The book, authored by Albertina Rizzo and Amanda McCall, will be turned into a film about a modern-day Pygmalion set in the hip-hop music industry and follows a hotshot A&R who falls from grace and makes a bet with the head of his label that he can make anyone into a star. The book itself is basically a Dummies Guide to the Hip-Hop scene.
Gold Circle is set to produce and finance the film once the script is finalized. Robinson, who brought the project into the company, will also executive produce. She is repped by CAA, Gotham Group and attorney Ryan Goodell.
