Selena's family developing TV series based on her legacy

The untitled drama, which is not biographical, focuses on Alex Guerra, a chart-topping, award-winning pop star who has been estranged from her family for five years.

Selena Quintanilla's family is developing a television series inspired by the musical legacy of the late singer. She tries to pick up the pieces when a crisis forces her home.

The series also marks the latest television project from Braun's SB Projects, which now produces the CBS series Scorpion and the Freeform series Movie Night with Karlie Kloss. Miguel Nolla, who's worked on Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, and Private Practice, has been brought on to write the series and co-executive produce.

As a put pilot commitment, viewers can be certain at least the first episode of the series will air. "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", Variety reports. Simran A. Singh and Selena Quintanilla family members Abraham Quintanilla, Jr. and Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga will join the project as producers. Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun will also executive produce the project, which will air on USA network ABC.

"This project gives us all an opportunity to showcase a successful, aspirational Latino family in a way that is not now represented on television", said Jaime Davila, president of Campanario Entertainment.

Quintanilla, dubbed the 'Queen of Tejano music, ' was murdered in 1995 aged 23 by the president of her fan club.
