Endemol Shine Latino and leading Mexican production company Boomdog, are bringing the highly anticipated series El Ganador, based on the life of Latin music sensation Nicky Jam, to the international TV marketplace, it was announced by Laurens Drillich, president, Endemol Shine Latino and Boomdog CEO Alejandro Rincón.

The scripted series, which will star Nicky Jam and is set to launch in the U.S. on Telemundo, is produced by Endemol Shine Latino and Mexico City-based production company Boomdog. El Ganador will be directed by Jessy Terrero, while Juan Diego Medina of La Industria Inc. and Sergio Pizzolante of C&T Mobs, will serve as executive producers. Casting is currently underway and production is slated to start later this year.

“We are thrilled to bring our upcoming series based on Nicky Jam’s remarkable life and chart-topping music career to the global TV marketplace. El Ganador’ will capture all of the dramatic highs and lows he has incurred over the last decade and in Nicky Jam’s case, life truly is stranger than fiction and his story will undoubtedly make for great television,” says Endemol Shine Latino’s Drillich.

“The story of Nicky’s life and success is truly incredible and inspiring. And it would be worth telling even if it didn’t star one of the greatest stars in music in the world. Nicky playing himself is surely unprecedented in Latin music history,” says Boombog’s Rincón.

“I’m very excited to be a part of El Ganador, the most ambitious project in the Hispanic media landscape. For years I’ve been waiting and preparing for an opportunity like this one. It’s an honor that Nicky Jam, Juan Diego Medina & Jessy Terrero put their trust in me to put it together. I’m thankful and proud to be able to tell this history with Boomdog and Endemol Shine Latino”, says Pizzolante.
