A person like him is sure to have an interesting story and this is what forms the basis of ‘Luis Miguel La Serie’.

Diego Boneta and Oscar Jaenada (who are also the stars of the show) serve as executive producers alongside Daniel Krauze, Antonio Cue, Miguel Aleman, Jose Luis Ramirez, Carla Gonzalez Vargas, Mark Burnet, Pablo Cruz and Miguel himself.

Luis Miguel La Serie Plot: What’s it About?
‘Luis Miguel La Serie’ is, in its essence, the story of a family. While the world already knows everything about the rise of Miguel’s magnificent career, very little is known about his personal life due to his perpetual quest to keep both things separate throughout his life. The series is thus not only the story of a star but also a picture of how fame and fortune don’t run parallel to personal satisfaction and happiness. The story begins with young Mickey whose singing talent is exploited by his father and he turns him into the superstar that the world now knows — Luis Miguel.
While the audience was blinded by the Sun and the gleam of his magical career, Miguel was struggling to keep his family intact. His mother’s mysterious disappearance has a huge impact on him, and while he wants some comfort and closure for his pain, his father is relentless about turning his son into something that he could never be. The world might have fallen in love with his charming smile, but only a few knew of the pain in his eyes. The series offers the fans a look into the life of their favourite singer, with Miguel himself helming the series. What more could you ask for authenticity?
