Selena Quintanilla was a mexican-american singer who has inspired many. Now, ABC is finally giving a pilot engagement to a series inspired by the late techno-cumbia singer.

The project is not yet named but Quintanilla’s family will be a part of the experience, along with Abraham Quintanilla, Jr and Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga who will contribute as producers. Miguel Nolla, who has worked on hit series like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” will take the role of co-executive and write the project. Additionally, Nolla, Sergio Aguero, Jaime Davila and Rico Martinez from Campirino Entertainment and Scooter Braun, Scott Manson and James Shin of SB Projects will be executive producers.

Although the series isn’t going to focus on Quintanilla specifically, it is going to be inspired by her lifestyle. The project will focus on Alex Guerra, an award winning pop star who struggles with family problems after being distant from them for five years. When Guerra returns home to Texas, she finds herself in many difficult situations like a love triangle, the persistence  of her career and family problems.

Since the premiere of “Selena,” directed by Gregory Nava in 1997, more and more people are becoming familiar with the story of the talented singer. This series is just another way Quintanilla’s legacy will live on.
