Gladys Rodriguez is speaking out about the 'Selena' Netflix series. She was hired as a consultant for the series based on Selena Quintanilla's life. The singer has a very successful and legendary career that was cut short after she was murdered in 1995. Rodriguez says that not only was the staff overworked and underpaid but the production budget was only allotted to $2 million/episode as opposed to the 'Crown's" $13 million/episode.
