Selena sings her highway to stardom within the trailer for the Netflix bio sequence – Watch
Netflix is adding a little Bidi Bidi Bom Bom to your Monday as a full-length trailer for its Selena Quintanilla Pérez organic series.
Christian Serratos (The Walking Dead) plays the lead role in the coming-of-age drama that follows the title singer on her way into the music industry. “Before becoming the queen of Tejano’s music, Selena Quintanilla was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice,” the official description reads. “Selena: The series explores her journey from singing small gigs to becoming the most successful Latin American artist of all time – and the years of hard work and sacrifice that the Quintanilla family navigated together.”
Although Selena’s life and career were tragically cut short at the age of 23 when she was shot dead by her friend Yolanda Saldívar, the trailer above mainly focuses on her rise to fame and the positive and negative effects of that success on Selena and her family .
Selena: The series is split into two parts, with Part 1 – consisting of six hour long episodes – being released on Friday, December 4th. The cast also includes Gabriel Chavarria (East Los High) as Selena’s oldest brother; Ricardo Chavira (desperate housewives) as Selena’s father; Noemí González (The Young and the Restless) as Selena’s sister; and Seidy López (training day) as Selena’s mother.
