Quick, what's your favorite TV show? If you answered anything besides the HBO dramedy Entourage, you're lying. I don't care whether you argue that it's horribly sexist (it is) and valorizes douchebaggery (hoo boy, does it), but no other work of television is as watchable a portrait of what it's like to be a fabulously wealthy white person in the early aughts as Entourage, except maybe Sex and the City. Okay, if you say Sex and the City is your favorite show, maybe you're not lying. You can have that one.

Regardless, five years after its series finale, Entourage is generally regarded as a capital-b Bad Show. But for those of us who are able to look in the mirror and admit to enjoying it on a very face-value, "I'm-hungover-and-need-to-look-at-something-anything-literally-anything" level, great news! Entourage is coming back, sorta, in the form of this new Selena Gomez show.

In a cover story for GQ's May issue, Selena Gomez discusses her newly cemented status as the most popular person on Instagram, that time everyone thought she went to rehab, and her upcoming projects. One of them? A TV show with Kevin Spacey's production company, Trigger Street, that she describes as "Entourage meets Girls." She elaborates, saying the show will center around "what girls deal with, even the perception of religion and things like that, how it affects you, and how impressionable Hollywood is." All there's left to do now is pray that Turtle will have a cameo as the out-of-touch agent, thereby completing the Entourage prophecy.

Update: Turns out, this "Entourage meets Girls" TV show and that rumored Lifetime series about Selena Gomez are one and the same. Deadline reports that Trigger Street and Lifetime are working on a scripted drama based on her own experience "navigating a career in Hollywood as seen through the eyes of her friends who quickly become her most trusted inner circle." Once again, there better be a Turtle cameo.
