When news broke earlier this year that Netflix would be releasing a show about Selena Quintanilla, well, to put it mildly, people lost their minds. The demand for Selena content — whether through music, fashion, or makeup — is exceptionally high. So it makes sense that a streaming service would want to release something by the late Tejano singer.
The issue remains that the Quintanilla family are incredibly protective of their daughter’s image, music — and overall brand. So, when Netflix secured a deal about Selena and her family, her fans rejoiced.
ABC also said they were interested in a TV-scripted project, inspired by the life of Selena, which also got the seal of approval by her family. Unfortunately, the network ended up turning it down.
