Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Late singer Selena Quintanilla is the inspiration behind a forthcoming ABC series.
The network gave a put pilot commitment to a new show influenced by the Tejano star's musical legacy, according to Variety.
Miguel Nolla will write the project and co-executive produce with talent manager Scooter Braun. Selena's father, Abraham Quintanilla, Jr., and sister, Suzette Quintanilla, will serve as producers.
The untitled pilot will focus on Alex Guerra, an award-winning pop star who has been estranged from her family for five years. A crisis causes her to return home to Texas, where she juggles a love triangle, the demands of her career and her family's dark secrets.
"Your book is based on a whole bunch of lies," she said.
Selena was killed by her former friend and fan club president, Yolanda Saldivar, at age 23 in 1995. The late singer was honored with a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in November.
