Does Taylor Swift, 33, have a blank space in her busy itinerary to develop a TV show? Seems like it. Although the decorated Grammy winner is about to embark on the international leg of her record-smashing Eras Tour, she's reportedly spending her free time meeting with screenwriters to potentially develop a TV show. And these aren't just any writers—turns out the “All Too Well” singer allegedly met with Alice Birch, AKA one of the story editors for season two of Succession.

As reported by The Sun, Swift allegedly met with Birch to discuss a new “meta-feminist” TV series.

A source told the publication: “Taylor is a multi-talented individual and while her love life has given her ten No. 1 albums, it is also in the early stages of spawning a new TV show. She has been introduced to Alice and they have started discussing a possible new screenplay.”

Why did Swift want to meet with Birch specifically? Well, it wasn't just because the singer-songwriter was sitting at home bingeing that whole final season.

“Alice is an ideal writing partner as she helped shape Succession character Shiv Roy,” the source added. “Seeing how she molded this character, who existed in a male-dominated environment, caught Taylor’s eye.”

Apparently, the two were brainstorming ideas and Swift was looking to her past relationships for inspiration. “This translates easily on to the screen and there are so many threads they can take from it,” the source noted.

After directing a number of her own music videos, including “The Man,” “Cardigan,” “Bejeweled,” and “All Too Well” (which made her the first artist to win the Grammy for Best Music Video with a solo directing credit on her own visual), Swift is reportedly working on her feature film debut with Searchlight Pictures, as reported by Variety last December. However, details of the film are being kept under wraps.

A movie and a TV show on the way? You'll have your EGOT before we know it, TayTay.
