TV Series Based on Selena Quintanilla's Musical Legacy in the Works”

A TV series inspired by late singer Selena Quintanilla's music is in development. According to Variety, ABC gave a put pilot commitment to a program that pays tribute to her legacy, though it's not about her life.

Instead of following the Queen of Tejano music, the series will focus on a fictitious Alex Guerra, who returns to her estranged family after years of massive success in the music industry. She tries to pick up the pieces when a crisis forces her home. Miguel Nolla, who's worked on Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, and Private Practice, has been brought on to write the series and co-executive produce.

Selena Quintanilla was one of the biggest Latino crossover artists. ABC Studios produces alongside Davila's Campanario Entertainment and Braun's SB Projects. Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun will also executive produce the project, which will air on US network ABC. Although the untitled series won't be biographical, it has been approved by Selena's father, Abraham Quintanilla, Jr., and sister, Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga.

"This project gives us all an opportunity to showcase a successful, aspirational Latino family in a way that is not now represented on television", said Jaime Davila, president of Campanario Entertainment. "Sergio, Rico and I are looking forward to creating with the team an original music-driven drama with authentic characters as multifaceted as our own families".
