"Selena: The Series" is based on the story of Mexican-American pop icon Selena Quintanilla who rose to fame in the late '80s. Unfortunately, Quintanilla was killed by the president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldívar, in 1995.

After her gruesome death, her posthumous single, "Dreaming Of You" ranked No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100. The biographical drama features "Twilight" star Christian Serratos, portraying the late Tejano singer.
