Netflix has greenlighted a scripted series that retells the tragic life story of Selena Quintanilla, the Queen of Tejano music and one of the most iconic Mexican-American pop stars.

Netflix has released a teaser for Selena: The Series, which the streaming service said was “developed alongside, and will be executive produced by, The Quintanilla family.” The teaser references one of Selena’s biggest hits, “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.”

Dubbed as “the official story of Tejano music legend, Selena Quintanilla,” Selena: The Series is a coming-of-age story following Selena as her dreams come true and all the heart-wrenching and life-changing choices she and her family have to make as they navigate success, family, and music.

“With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives,” said Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla.
