We're Getting a Selena-Inspired TV Show

Get Ready Because a Selena Quintanilla Inspired Show Is Coming to ABC

The project is now untitled and isn't directly about the singer's life, but the series will focus on a character named Alex Guerra ― an award-winning pop star estranged from her family.

The "Como La Flor" singer's siblings, Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga and Abraham Quintanilla Jr., will serve as producers, alongside Simran A. Singh.

There should be a lot of material to pull from Selena's life: She became one of the most popular Latina singers in the world despite her short career, which tragically ended when she was murdered at the age of 23 in 1995 by the manager of her fan club. The series will be written by Miguel Nolla, who has worked on shows Grey's Anatomy and Scandal.

Hold onto your bidi bidi bom bom, because we have the most unbelievable TV news. Additionally, she's in the midst of a love triangle and has to head back home to Texas where her relatives are involved in a crisis.

"We are excited to come on board as producers on an ABC music driven, Latino family drama that celebrates Selena's musical legacy with a lead character whose music and career is inspired by Selena", Suzette expressed in a statement.

Cyprus company sues ex-Trump campaign manager Manafort for financial fraud
The suit adds that Manafort and Gates "grossly" mismanaged the investment, "resulting in a total loss of the amount invested". Manafort and Gates formed a Cayman Islands partnership called Pericles Emerging Market Partners.

For the past few years, Selena's image has been heavily used to sell everything from makeup to t-shirts at Forever 21.

The Quintanilla family has been very good and maintaining the legacy of Selena in terms of attaching her to "legit" projects.

I'm also skeptical because it reminds me of the way Frida Kahlo's art has been appropriated.

And I think we can all agree, that's something Selena would've wanted.
