NEW YORK – Kim Kardashian West has a book on film and television rights.
Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, announced Wednesday that Alice Marie Johnson's "After Life: My Journey From Incarceration to Freedom" comes out May 21. Kardashian West contributed to "Foreword to What Harper" is an "honest, faith-driven memoir" and to "deep look into the systemic issue of mass incarceration." Film, television and "life rights" were sold to the Endeavor Content and One Community.
"I feel humbled that I am told in my statement."
"My life has been changed because of Alice Marie Johnson," Kardashian West said in statement. "Her story is a gift that will now come to many millions more through her book and film. I hope Alice's case is just the beginning. I am invested in continuing to support Alice and this cause. "
Financial terms for Johnson's book and film deals were not disclosed
Donald Trump commuted her sentence last year. Kardashian West personally lobbied him in the Oval Office, a meeting which Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner helped arrange. Last December, Trump signed bipartisan legislation that gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drugs offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts. On Tuesday night, Johnson was among the first to be a member of the State of the Union address.
"Alice's story underscores the disparities and unfairness that can exist in criminal sentencing", "Trump said in his speech as Johnson", received a standing ovation. "Alice, thank you for reminding us that we always have the power to shape our own destiny."
