The streaming giant has teamed up with the family of Selena Quintanilla to create a series that tells the life story of the music legend. According to the official description, Selena: The Series will be a "coming of age story following Selena as her dreams come true and all the heart-wrenching and life-changing choices she and her family have to make as they navigate success, family, and music." The Quintanilla family have been involved in the project from the get-go and will serve as the series's executive producers.
"Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory. With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives," Selena's sister, Suzette Quintanilla, said in a statement.
After starring in this Summer's biggest romantic hit, Crazy Rich Asians, the Fresh Off the Boat actress is reportedly doubling down on the genre, according to new rumors about her next film role. In an as-yet-unnamed romantic comedy directed by Glow star Kimmy Gatewood and executive produced by Elizabeth Banks, Wu would play a "charmingly chaotic woman who has to get her life together when she becomes pregnant with two babies from two different men."
Um, say what now?!
Yes, apparently Wu's character, if she does sign onto the film, will live out one of my actual nightmares when she endures a double pregnancy (though I'm sure her journey will be far less traumatizing). Savion Einstein wrote the screenplay about this case of "superfecundation," which is apparently a very, very rare condition that could, hypothetically, result in such a scenario.
Levi made his television debut in Big Shot: Confessions of a Campus Bookie, a made-for-tv movie in 2002. After taking on a few smaller roles on sitcoms in the early 2000s (anyone remember the charming Less Than Perfect?), he landed what would be his breakout role: accidental spy Chuck Bartowski on the NBC spy comedy Chuck. For five seasons, from 2007 to 2012, Levi played Chuck, a tech-store nerd who accidentally
Dolly Parton is the type of celebrity who, the more you find out about her, the more impossible it is not to admire her.
The iconic singer-songwriter has not only been making music since the 1960s when she burst on the scene with her debut album, Hello, I'm Dolly, but she's also dabbled in being an actress, record producer, and philanthropist (her charity donated its 100 millionth book in February). On top of all that, she's also an incredibly savvy businesswoman, which means she's maintained ownership over most of her own songs over the last few decades, which is what allowed her to lend her music to Netflix's latest rom-com hit, Dumplin'.
The film follows the story of Willowdean Dickson (Danielle Macdonald), a "self-proclaimed fat girl" who decides to regain her confidence by entering the beauty pageant run by her thin, judgmental mother (Jennifer Aniston) in her small Texas town.
With her marriage on the rocks, Dr. Bailey buckles up and takes charge of the hospital in the midst of a crazy storm and power outage. Richard and Catherine's relationship hangs in the balance as he's yet to find out about her tumor. Then we have Mer and DeLuca, who're stuck in an elevator together, the sexual tension sparking between them almost unbearable. There's lots to digest, so here's everything that you need to remember, as well as our predictions for what's going to happen next, when the season picks up!

Although Netflix, as per usual, hasn't commented one way or the other yet, Dumplin' does seem like a likely candidate for a sequel. The biggest reason? It's based on a Ya novel by Julie Murphy that already has a sequel, Puddin'. Murphy's second book switches the focus from original protagonist Willowdean Dickson to her lovable classmate Millie Michalchuk, who ends up crossing paths with mean girl Callie over
The adaptation of Julie Murphy's New York Times bestselling Ya novel was brought to the screen by writer Kristin Hahn, which led to her longtime friend Jennifer Aniston joining the film, and soon everything else - including singer-songwriter and all-around queen Dolly Parton's involvement - fell into place. The film stars Australian actress Danielle Macdonald as Willowdean Dickson, a "self-proclaimed fat girl" who's dubbed "Dumplin'" by
