Jennifer Lopez was AMAZING in 1997’s Selena. We can all agree on that.
BUT get ready to lose it because Netflix just announced they’re developing a scripted TV show based on SELENA!!!!
To catch you up, just in case, she was one of the biggest pop stars ever — she was lauded for her talent, her gorgeous looks, as well as her ability to successfully engage fans of Tejano music all over the world. She was murdered at the height of her career, and there’s not a soul alive who hasn’t wondered “what could have been” when it comes to her legacy, which remains strong more than 20 years after her death.
Netflix just released the teaser trailer:
According to Netflix, the series will be a “coming-of-age story” that follows Selena’s life and career, as well as her family life. It’s currently being marketed as a two-part limited series.
“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,” Suzette says. “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.”
