Christian Serratos in Talks to Play Selena Quintanilla in Netflix Series

Christian Serratos in Talks to Play Selena Quintanilla in Netflix Series
"The Walking Dead" alum Christian Serratos is in negotiations to star in "Selena: The Series", Netflix's upcoming biographical series that centers on Tejano music superstar Selena Quintanilla. The show will be written and executive produced by Moises Zamora ("American Crime").

The streaming series has been described as a "coming of age story following Selena as her dreams come true and all the heart-wrenching and life-changing choices she and her family have to make as they navigate success, family, and music."

Singer-songwriter, model, actress and fashion designer Selena Quintanilla was one of the biggest Latino crossover artists, selling over 60 million albums before her tragic death in 1995 at age 23, when she was killed by her former fan club president. Her posthumous crossover album "Dreaming of You" topped the Billboard 200 later that year, a first for a Latin artist.

The Quintanilla family is on board to assist in its development and will also executive produce through Campanario Entertainment. Selena's story was previously brought to the big screen in the 1997 biopic "Selena", which starred Jennifer Lopez in a performance that earned the actress a Golden Globe nomination. The creative team behind the Netflix series previously secured a put pilot commitment at ABC for a series inspired by the musical legacy of Selena last year.

Serratos currently plays Rosita Espinosa on AMC's "The Walking Dead", and her TV resume also includes "The Secret Life of the American Teenager", "American Horror Story" and "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide". She has also appeared in films like the "Twilight" franchise, "Pop Star" and "Flight 7500".
