“When Selena Quintanilla burst onto the Tejano music scene in the ‘80s, her dream was to make music that celebrated both her Latin roots and her Mexican-American upbringing, She ultimately brought these two worlds together, leaving behind a timeless legacy that still resonates with generations of fans around the world,” said Netflix’s VP of Latin American Originals, Francisco Ramos.
“We had the same hopes when we released Selena: The Series in December on Netflix. We wanted to pay tribute to the young girl with big dreams and an even bigger voice, and honor her incredible rise from performing local gigs with her family to gracing some of the world’s biggest stages,” he continued.
