Texas writing talent shines bright on Selena: The Series, one of Netflix’s most anticipated shows of the year. UT alum Raymond Arturo Perez, Seguin native Marcelena Campos Mayhorn (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), and Aaron Serna (Cristela and Malibu County), from South Texas, are Los Angeles-based writers who are bringing their experiences to the writers’ room and diversifying the television landscape. They will talk about what it was like to write the story of Tejano music star and Texas legend Selena Quintanilla for a global audience, and more! Moderated by RTF Associate Professor Mary Beltrán, this is a panel Selena fans and everyone interested in Latina/o/x and Tejana/o/x visibility won’t want to miss.
The event is co-sponsored by Mexican American and Latina/o Studies and the Department of Radio-Television-Film
