ABC has given a put pilot commitment to a series inspired by the musical legacy of Selena Quintanilla.
The untitled project is written and co-executive produced by Miguel Nolla. It will be produced by some of the Quintanilla family members.
The series focuses on Alex Guerra, a chart-topping, award winning pop star who has been estranged from her family for 5 years. She tries to pick up the pieces when a crisis forces her to return home. Alex finds herself back in Texas, juggling a love triangle, the demands of her career and the dark secrets of the family that she now desperately wants to win back.
Selena was killed by her former friend and fan club president, Yolanda Saldivar, at age 23 in 1995. The late singer was honored with a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in November.
