‘Selena: The Series’ trailer tugs hearts before Netflix premiere

The first full trailer for the upcoming Netflix biographical program “Selena: The Series” is a wistful celebration of a star on the rise.

The show tells the coming-of-age story of beloved singer Selena Quintanilla — played by Christian Serratos (“The Walking Dead,” “Twilight”) — whose life is filled with “heart-wrenching and life-changing sacrifices she and her family make as they navigate the highs and lows of success, loss, love and music,” according to the show’s official description.

“If you stand around and wait for what you want, you’re gonna be waiting your whole life,” a young Selena is told in a voice-over. “You have to go and get it.”

In her short life, Texas native Selena went on to find big success as the “Queen of Tejano music” before she was shockingly murdered by her fan club president and former boutique clothing manager Yolanda Saldivar on March 31, 1995, at age 23. She was the top-selling Latin artist of the 1990s, according to Billboard magazine, which inducted her into its Latin Music Hall of Fame in 1995.

The two-part show also stars Gabriel Chavarria, Ricardo Chavira, Noemí Gonzalez and Seidy López. “Selena: The Series” will premiere Dec. 4 on Netflix.
