'Selena's Secret' coming to TV
Disney media is on the works for a new show which is based on a book about the Queen of Tejano Selena. Plus, could a Legally Blonde 3 be in the works? Find out what Reese Witherspoon has to say.
Disney announced that they are producing a 13-episode TV series based on the best-selling book “El Secreto de Selena” (Selena’s Secret) by María Celeste Arrarás.
"El Secreto de Selena is the revealing story behind her tragic death. It is a story very different from the official version that was told immediately after his murder. It turns out that in the months before her death, Selena was not as happy as many thought. She was living through a tumultuous moment in her life; she was surrounded by people that loved her but also wanted to manipulate her. She felt that she was being pulled in different directions and she was torn. Selena was about to take various decisions in her life that were going to change her personal and professional life forever," Arrarás said.
Selena’s Secret is inspired by the events surrounding the tragic death of Selena Quintanilla, who was murdered in the 1990s. The series is slated to air on TNT in Latin America and TV Azteca in Mexico.
“We’re happy and very excited to bring this story to the small screen,” said Fernando Barbosa, the senior VP and general manager of Disney Media Distribution and Production for Latin America and the U.S. Hispanic market at The Walt Disney Company Latin America. “Every fan of the great diva will know what really happened during and after her tragic end. I have no doubt that it will have great acceptance and success in the TV market.”
