A new scripted drama about Selena Quintanilla is in the works at Netflix.
The coming of age series is the official story of the Tejano music legend, who won Best Mexican/American Album at the 1994 Grammy Awards and passed away at the age of 23 in 1995. It follows Selena as her dreams come true and all the heart-wrenching and life-changing choices she and her family have to make as they navigate success, family, and music.
Produced by Campanario Entertainment, the Quintanilla family has been fully involved in the project, with Suzette Quintanilla and Abraham Quintanilla Jr. on board as exec-producers, alongside Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez and Simran A. Singh.
“Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory. With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives. We are excited to partner with Campanario and Netflix to give fans a never-before-seen glimpse at our story and highlight why Selena will remain a legend for generations to come,” says Suzette Quintanilla, sister of Selena.
Moisés Zamora (Star, American Crime) is writing the story, and will also exec-produce the project.
“Selena and the entire Quintanilla family are an inspiration to many and especially to me, a millennial of the same heritage. Selena’s career achievements are legendary, but our scripted series will focus on the incredible story of a Mexican-American family and how an extraordinary young woman transcended categories and borders to become a global star. I can’t imagine a better partner than Netflix to celebrate Selena and her family’s lives,” adds Jaime Dávila, President of Campanario Entertainment.
