Netflix has unveiled the first look at Selena: The Series, the forthcoming show about the late Tejana singer, Selena Quintanilla.

The one-minute teaser unveils the actress portraying Selena, Christian Serratos. It shows The Walking Dead star looking over her script, dressing in Quintanilla’s trademark purple jumpsuit and red-lipsticked look, and hitting the stage to perform “Como La Flor.”

“Red lips: check. Feathered bangs: check. Legendary jumpsuit: check,” Netflix said alongside the teaser.

The series follows the singer’s rise to stardom as she navigates success, family and music. The story of Quintanilla, who was shot and killed at the age of 23 in 1995, was previously told in the 1997 movie starring Jennifer Lopez.

Part one of Selena: The Series premieres in 2020.
