As a Spanish dude who grew up listening to Selena’s music and watched her movie (a million times), this is big news for me!
She was HUGE in Mexico (and on my mom’s stereo system) and up and coming in the States. She even won a Grammy.
A movie, about Selena’s life, came out in ’97 that starred a young and up and coming actress, Jennifer Lopez.
It was J-lo’s first ever movie and not only did she kill it, she looked just like Selena!

21 years after the movie came out, Selena’s family and ABC wants to start a TV drama series. They got the okay from ABC to start a pilot.
There’s no name or release date for the show but Selena’s siblings will be producers.

The main character will be named “Alex Guerra” who has been estranged from her family for 5 years. It’ll be filled with Drama like the stress from her music career and love life. Pretty much what Selena went through. No word on who will play Alex…..What’s J-Lo doing nowadays???
