Directed by Hiromi Kamata, the series chronicles the late Tejano singer’s rise to fame. The black-and-white teaser features Selena taking the stage to a packed audience, as “Como La Flor” plays. “Do you trust your father?” Abraham Quintanilla (Ricardo Chavira) asks her. “If you keep practicing, it’s all gonna pay off. Just watch. And when I see you on that stage, I still see the 6-year-old girl singing in our backyard.”
Selena: The Series also stars Madison Taylor Baez as a young Selena, Noemi Gonzalez as Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla, Siedy Lopez as her mother Marcella, and Gabriel Chavarria as her brother A.B. It also includes Julio Macias, Hunter Reese Pena, Jesse Posey, Carlos Alfredo Jr., Paul Rodriguez, Erika Buenfil, David Fernandez Jr., and more.
The series was written and created by Moisés Zamora and was executive produced by Gonzalez, Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, and Moisés Zamora.
