Official Trailer for “Selena: The Series” Reveals Netflix’s Look at a Legend
It’s been 23-years since we’ve seen a proper take on the incredibly gifted performer Selena Quintanilla. That was in writer/director Gregory Nava’s 1997 film Selena, in which a young Jennifer Lopez starred as the Texas-born Tejano singer whose career was only just getting started when she was tragically murdered a few weeks shy of her 24th birthday. Now, Selena Quintanilla is getting an even more fulsome look in an upcoming series from Campanario Entertainment and Netflix. Selena: The Series stars The Walking Dead‘s Christian Serratos in the titular role, and includes an incredible cast of Latinx performers, from a bevy of Latinx writers and crew, and comes with the blessing of the Quintanilla family themselves. Netflix has released the full trailer, revealing Serratos’ as the young star discovering her latent talent, and delivering one of her most iconic songs, “Como la Flor.”
Selena: The Series stars a lot of excellent performers, including Gabriel Chavarria, Ricardo Chavira, Noemí Gonzalez, and Seidy López. The series comes from Moises Zamora (Star), who also serves as executive producer alongside Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, Hiromi Kamata (The Exorcist), Simran A. Singh, and, crucially, Suzette Quintanilla—Selena’s sister and drummer.
Check out the trailer below. Selena: The Series bows on Netflix on December 4.
