A new generation will be exposed to the legend of Selena Quintanilla Perez, whose life is being adapted for the small screen in a Netflix series, according to a tweet by the company.

The project is executive produced by Selena’s family.

Dubbed the Queen of Tejano, Selena died on March 31, 1995, but her popularity has not waned. In recent years, her image has been used on a line of MAC makeup and just last week, H.E.B. released their second edition of Selena reusable bags.
