Chris Perez’s Book ‘To Selena with Love’ to be Adapted into TV Series

Studios Developing Series For Both English and Spanish Audiences Based On Best-Selling Book About Latin Superstar’s Love Story

selena-cover


Endemol Shine North America and Major TV have optioned the television rights to Chris Perez’s To Selena With Love, the best-selling book that tells the late Latin music superstar’s love story through the eyes of her husband.

Endemol Shine and Major TV are adapting To Selena With Love for both English and Spanish TV audiences with Blue Mariachi, Perez and Carlito Miranda’s production company. Endemol Shine, Major TV, and Blue Mariachi are also developing additional culturally-driven scripted and non-scripted content together.

In To Selena With Love, which was first published in 2012 (English and Spanish), Perez recounts for the first time his compelling, forbidden and ultimately tragic love story with one of the most revered Latin music stars, Selena Quintanilla. The TV series will also include details, stories, perspective and insights which were not covered in the book from Perez’s perspective.

Major TV is led by Raymond Garcia, formerly publisher and founder of Celebra at Penguin Random House, where he published numerous best-sellers with top authors such as Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, and Perez, author of To Selena With Love.

I spent several years keeping the memories of my late wife bottled up inside, says Perez. To Selena with Love allowed me to finally embrace my experience and understand the void it could fill in the hearts of so many others. I am now ready to take the important step of being fully transparent and bringing my everlasting relationship to life on the screen.

Selena is one of the most influential Latin artists of all time and her legacy continues to live on long after her tragic death, says Endemol Shine North America CEO and Endemol Shine Americas Chairman Cris Abrego. Chris Perez’s beautiful book To Selena With Love captured their amazing life together and will make for the perfect foundation for a TV series that our team is currently developing for both English and Spanish audiences worldwide.

Added Major TV’s Garcia, I could not be more honored and humbled to launch Major TV with Endemol Shine and the captivating love story of the legendary Selena Quintanilla and Chris Perez. Having published To Selena with Love, I witnessed legions of fans moved to tears with a rare glimpse into the heart and soul of their eternal icon. I am very proud of Chris for sharing his deeply personal relationship for the first time on television.

Grammy Award-winner Selena Quintanilla is one of the most influential Latin artists of all time, having sold 60 million albums worldwide. The Texas-born singer made her recording debut in the ’80s, going on to become an award-winning recording artist in the Latin music scene with albums like Amor Prohibido and Selena Live. In 1995, she was tragically murdered by the founder of her fan club. Her last album, Dreaming of You, was released posthumously in 1995 and became a huge hit. Selena’s life story was the subject of a 1997 film, Selena, which starred Jennifer Lopez in her career-propelling role as the Tejano superstar and James Edward Olmos as her father.
