Chris Perez announced that he and Endemol Shine North America were developing at TV series based on his novel, To Selena With Love.
“I spent several years keeping the memories of my late wife bottled up inside,” Perez said. “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.”
Now, however, the series is being halted by Selena’s father Abraham Quintanilla II due to the claim that Chris doesn’t have the authority to make money off of Selena’s name. The lawsuit claims that his novel and any adapation are unathorized.
