ABC has given a put pilot commitment to a series inspired by the musical legacy of Selena Quintanilla and family members Abraham Quintanilla, Jr. and Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga are signed on as producers.

“We are excited to come on board as producers on an ABC music driven, Latino family drama that celebrates Selena’s musical legacy with a lead character whose music and career is inspired by Selena,” Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga said in the news release.

The series will focus on Alex Guerra, a chart-topping, award winning pop star who has been estranged from her family for 5 years. She tries to pick up the pieces when a crisis forces her to return home. Alex finds herself back in Texas, juggling a love triangle, the demands of her career and the dark secrets of the family that she now desperately wants to win back.

Miguel Nolla (Scandal) is co-executive producer and writing the project. Sergio Aguero, Jaime Davila and Rico Martinez of Campanario Entertainment are executive producing with top music talent manager Scooter Braun, along with Scott Manson and James Shin of SB Projects. ABC Studios produces alongside Davila’s Campanario Entertainment and Braun’s SB Projects.

Selena sold over 60 million albums worldwide before she was murdered by her fan club president in 1995. She was also the subject of the 1997 film “Selena,” with Jennifer Lopez starring in the title role.
