This marks the beginning of the production phase of this long-awaited series, which has caused great stir in the industry, since it narrates the story of one of the most popular pop music bands of the 70s and a hotbed of internationally famous artists.
The series tells the saga and the unprecedented success of the Puerto Rican band that launched the careers of music stars such as Ricky Martin, Draco Rosa, Johnny Lozada, Ricky Meléndez and others. The band achieved an unprecedented international projection guided by Edgardo Díaz, creator of the idea.
"Once the scripts are finished and the casting selected, we enter fully into a project that has captivated us. It is a unique story for its time and unforgettable for those who lived the rage of menudomania. We know this story has a prior acceptance among the audience and we have made an important commitment with our partners to deliver a first class product. We are sure that Súbete A mi Moto will satisfy the demands of the fans and will do justice to a fascinating history of the music in Spanish in all audiences. It's a complex but very satisfying project for a team that has already accumulated much recognition in the independent production industry," commented Luis Villanueva, president and CEO of SOMOS Productions.
Endemol Shine Boomdog CEO Alejandro Rincon added, “the story behind them is one that has never been told in this fashion and we are excited to start production with our friends at Somos and Piñolywood Studios.”
Carlos Nido, president of Piñolywood Studios, said: "this is a great privilege for the whole team and we are very excited to start the project. We will also give the opportunity to new young talents of the country to be globally shown through this series."
