Leverage Acquires Rights to Gypsy Tea Entrepreneur Zhena Muzyka Memoirs

Leverage has inked a deal with Gypsy Tea entrepreneur Zhena Muzyka to produce a series loosely based on Muzyka’s life and her soon-to-be-released motivational memoir “Life by the Cup: Ingredients for a Purpose-Filled Life of Bottomless Happiness and Limitless Success.”

Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg will exec produce the series, which will follow an unemployed, modern-day hippie, with a sick infant son, who outwits some of the business world’s most successful players to build her own multimillion-dollar tea empire.

Sources say Leverage saw this character as something fresh for TV given that there aren’t many shows about women going into a business for themselves and that this fish-out-of-water tale could have broad appeal.

The memoir, published by Atria/Simon & Schuster, will hit the stands June 17. Producer Audrey Kelly brought the unpublished manuscript to Michael Garnett at Leverage.
