Here is an interview with Knoll where she reveals that one of the scenes in her book is based on her own experience:
Here’s the official Details for Netflix’s Luckiest Girl Alive from Deadline:
Ani FaNelli seems to have it all: a glamorous job at a glossy magazine, an enviable figure with the wardrobe to match, and a handsome fiancé from a distinguished blue-blood family. But Ani FaNelli is an invention that veneer of perfection carefully assembled in an attempt to distance herself from a shocking, sordid past.
As her wedding draws near, a documentary producer invites Ani to speak about the chilling incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Bradley School. Determined once and for all to silence the whispers of suspicion and blame, Ani must weigh her options carefully, when telling the whole truth could destroy the picture-perfect life she’s worked so hard to create.
What about the production of Luckiest Girl Alive Movie?
In August 2015, Lionsgate bought the rights to make a movie of Luckiest Girl Alive. Reese Witherspoon will be the person who makes it happen because she is working in her company called Pacific Standard. In February 2021, it was announced that Mila Kunis would be starring in the movie. She will be playing the main character and director Mike Barker is making the movie.
The script is by Knoll, and Netflix has agreed to distribute the film. Witherspoon’s production company is no longer involved with this project. In July 2021, Finn Wittrock, Scoot McNairy, Chiara Aurelia, Thomas Barbusca, Justine Lupe, and other people joined the cast of the movie.
