Selena Gomez also produced the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why.
The 27-year-old singer served as the executive producer for Netflix’s upcoming docuseries, Living Undocumented. Emmy winners Aaron Saidman and Eli Holzman have produced the series alongside Gomez.
The series will follow the story of eight different families living in the United States. However, they are undocumented and facing potential deportation.
Selena Gomez posted the trailer on Instagram and wrote, “I am so humbled to be a part of Netflix’s documentary series Living Undocumented. The immigration issue is more complex than one administration, one law or the story you hear about on the news.”
Adding further, “These are real people in your community, your neighbors, your friends. They are all part of the country we call home. I can’t wait for you guys to see this and hope it impacts you like it impacted me. Available globally October 2.”
Furthermore, the Back To You singer also talked to Deadline about why she decided to produce the documentary. Saying, “I chose to produce this series, Living Undocumented, because over the past few years, the word immigrant has seemingly become a negative word.”
“My hope is that the series can shed light on what it’s like to live in this country as an undocumented immigrant firsthand. From the courageous people who have chosen to share their stories,” she concluded.
Fellow producer Saidman also said, “Living Undocumented is designed to illuminate one of the most important issues of our time.”
Adding further, “But rather than discussing this issue with only statistics and policy debates, we wanted viewers to hear directly from the immigrants themselves. In their own words, with all the power and emotion that these stories reflect.”
