Somos Productions, Boomdog, Piñolywood Studios and Endemol Shine Latino are teaming up to produce the first-ever scripted drama series based on the most successful Latin boy band of all time, Menudo.
Súbete a Mi Moto—The History of Menudo tells the story of the formation of Menudo through the band’s rise to unprecedented global success. Originally formed in Puerto Rico in the 1970s by Edgardo Díaz, Menudo dramatically altered the Latin music landscape and launched numerous hit songs and the successful musical careers of Draco Rosa, Ricky Martin, and many others.
The first season of the series will focus on the origins of the band and its sudden rise to fame. Somos Distribution and Endemol Shine Latino are currently in discussions with potential network/platforms for the series.
“There’s never been anything like Menudo in Latin music history, a band that’s success spans four decades and launched some of the biggest names in the industry. Súbete a Mi Moto—The History of Menudo will take viewers behind the scenes from the band’s Puerto Rican origins through its unprecedented global success,” says Laurens Drillich, president, Endemol Shine Latino.
“There are musical phenomena that become well-known landmarks because of their impact both with their songs and stage presence, as well as for the richness of their personal experiences. Menudo is one of such phenomena and its history, as told by the creator and manager of the band, guarantees the excitement and appeal of each of this series’ episodes,” adds Luis Villanueva, president, and CEO of Somos Productions.
