It's undeniable the weight the Latin American community is having on the market right now, so an upcoming Selena Gomez TV show is sure to be a hit. Produced by the popstar, it is being described as a Latina Empire -- not a history show, but a spin on the current ABC megahit show starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson.

The Selena Gomez TV show will tell the story of an 18-year-old living in a Latino neighborhood who is destined for greatness. It was inspired by Ana Cobarrubias, a Los Angeles high school senior, who gave a speech at The Zimmer Children’s Museum Discovery Award Dinner about making a difference in the East LA neighborhood in which she grew up and transcending expectations that society had for her as a young woman.
