From the trailers Netflix has shared, it can be seen that Selena’s love story is a highlight in this series. Selena’s love story began through her music and the deep bond she shared with her husband, Chris Peréz. In the series, Peréz’s role is played by actor Jesse Posey who is best known for his work in “Stitchers.

We are able to see that from a young age Selena’s passion was music and how advice from her father, whom she held close to her heart, helped her career skyrocketed. With flashing lights, cumbia blasting and Selena’s voice in the background as each beat drops slowly gave me chills and excitement to unveil this new series.
