Sexy singer Britney Spears is lining up an alternative career in TV - she's close to signing on as executive producer for an ABC movie based on a book she wrote with her mother.

The untitled project is scheduled to go into production in Toronto, Canada, early next year (04) and is expected to be broadcast by the American network in April (04).

The movie will be based on the 2001 semi-autobiographical novel A MOTHER'S GIFT, which was co-written with Britney's mum LYNNE SPEARS, who is also on board as an executive producer.

It tells the story of an aspiring teenage singer who travels across America in search of success.
