“Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory,” her sister, Suzette Quintanilla, said in a statement. “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.”
Quintanilla’s story was previously told on the big screen in a 1997 biopic starring Jennifer Lopez.
Quintanilla was last month honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
