Here's Everything We Know About 'Selena,' Netflix's Upcoming Series About the Late Tejano Legend

By Pippa Raga

Anything for Selenas

The story of late Tejano music legend Selena Quintanilla-Perez is coming to life once again — this time through a scripted series on Netflix, the platform announced yesterday. Which is incredible news to anyone who still bumps "Como la Flor" and "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" on the regular (me).

Even better, the Quintanilla family — who worked closely on the 1997 classic that propelled Jennifer Lopez's career into the limelight — is totally on board, and will executive produce and develop the upcoming show.

Mexican-American writer and filmmaker Moisés Zamora will pen the coming-of-age series, which is set to chronicle Selena's rise from singing in her father's Mexican restaurant through achieving world fame — all up until her untimely death at the hands of her best friend.
