Pop beauty Britney Spears is turning the book she wrote with her mother into a TV movie.

The BOYS singer, 21, wrote A MOTHER'S GIFT with her mum LYNNE and now plans to turn it into two-hour feature called HOLLY for American cable network ABC FAMILY.

But Spears won't be starring in the film - opting instead to serve as executive producer on the project.

The film's actors have yet to be cast.
