Selena Quintanilla was a rising star and on the verge of becoming a massively successful crossover artist. She was tragically killed by a trusted friend and president of her fan club in 1995. Jennifer Lopez also famously portrayed the young singer in the hit 1997 film Selena.
The Netflix Selena series will be written and executive produced by Moises Zamora with Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, Suzette Quintanilla, Abraham Quintanilla Jr., and Simran A. Singh also executive producing. Campanario Entertainment will produce.
There is no release date yet for the series.
