Telemundo presents El Secreto de Selena (Selena’s Secret), an investigative view into the events that led to Selena Quintanilla’s tragic death, premiering Sunday, August 25 at 10pm/9c.
The series is based on the bestselling book of the same name written by María Celeste Arrarás, renowned Telemundo journalist, and will provide viewers an in-depth look into the investigation and trial proceedings for the legendary Mexican-American singer’s murder in 1995.
El Secreto de Selena delivers a powerfully intimate and intense examination into the shocking murder of the legendary queen of Tex-Mex music. Selena, portrayed in the series by Maya Zapata, stood on the cusp of becoming a crossover music superstar before being shot and killed at the age of 23 by Yolanda Saldívar, president of her fan club and personal friend.
The series chronicles the lives of Selena and the main players in her world before her tragic death, including Yolanda (Damayanti Quintanar), whose fixation on her idol reaches dangerous proportions; and María Celeste Arrarás (Sofía Lama), the ambitious journalist who would play a vital role in the exhaustive investigation of the star's assassination.
El Secreto de Selena, a production by Buena Vista Original Productions, Moconoco, LatinWE, and BTF Media, is an adaptation of the bestselling book by María Celeste Arrarás, who debuts as co-executive producer along with Fernando Barbosa, Luis Balaguer, Leonardo Aranguibel and Francisco Cordero.
