For the first time on US television, Telemundo premieres the internationally successful series El Secreto de Selena (Selena’s Secret), the revealing story behind the tragic death of the Tex-Mex queen Selena Quintanilla on Sunday, August 25, 2019 at 10:00 pm.
The highly-anticipated mini-series, also available with closed captioning in English, revolves around the investigation and trial of the murder of the beloved Tejano music legend.
An adaptation of the bestselling book by three-time Emmy winning Telemundo journalist, María Celeste Arrarás, the series presents what has never been told, the turbulent events that took place months before Selena's death and sheds light on what happened the day she was fatally shot.
The story revolves around three main characters: Selena (Maya Zapata), who gives everything to achieve success; Yolanda (Damayanti Quintanar), who has a fixation with her idol; and Maria Celeste (Sofia Lama), the journalist who had exclusive access to those involved in the story and led an extensive investigation surrounding the assassination.
