‘Selena: The Series’ might be on the small screen, but it paints a bigger picture of the iconic Tejano singer’s life

Christian Serratos (“The Walking Dead”) has her own breakout in the making as Selena Quintanilla, whose career was the culmination of a dream envisioned by her father, Abraham. Ricardo Chavira (“Desperate Housewives”) is particularly well cast as the former musician, who cobbles together a family band after overhearing his youngest daughter casually belt out a song. The band, Selena y Los Dinos, becomes an all-hands-on-deck business for the patriarch, who enlists Selena’s older siblings — A.B. (Gabriel Chavarria) on bass guitar and Suzette (Noemi Gonzalez), reluctantly, on drums — and their mother, Marcella (Seidy López), who helps to make the band’s costumes and serve as a balm to her husband’s tough management style.

“Selena: The Series” is authorized by the singer’s family (Suzette Quintanilla is an executive producer) and the first half of the two-part series is as much about them as it is about Selena. Chavira’s portrayal of Abraham

‘Call Me Kat’ Trailer Offers First Look At Mayim Bialik’s Fox Series; EPs Explain How Sitcom Will Differ From Miranda Hart’s BBC Show

Come 2021, Mayim Bialik will return to the sitcom scene in the titular role of Fox’s Call Me Kat. On Wednesday viewers got a first look at the actress’ take on the hopelessly single but joyfully eccentric character inspired by Miranda Hart’s Miranda.

Call Me Kat, written by Darlene Hunt, centers around Bialik’s Kat, a 39-year old Cat Café owner who struggles every day against society and her mother to prove that one can’t have everything, and still be happy. Set to make its premiere in 2021, Call Me Kat will introduce American viewers to a new kind of woman, Bialik said during the Fox Press Tour on Wednesday.

“We’re showing a very non-conventional female…we’re proud to be showing a woman who’s owning all of herself,” Bialik touted.

According to Variety, Armie Hammer has signed on to star in The Offer, an upcoming drama series about the making of The Godfather—so the name is a play on “make him an offer he can’t refuse” and not a play on The Office—that’s coming to Paramount Plus (the streaming service formerly known as CBS All Access). Rather than playing Francis Ford Coppola, which would be a choice, Hammer will be playing producer Al Ruddy (who also happens to be an executive producer on The Offer), with Variety explaining that the show is about Ruddy’s “experience on the set of the iconic mob drama.” The Offer will be Hammer’s first regular TV gig, and as we learned back in September, the 10-episode series will be written by Michael Tolkin (Escape At Dannemora).
