Luis Miguel Series (Luis Miguel La Serie, original title) presents the only authorized story on the life of multi-platinum artist and global superstar Luis Miguel, played by Diego Boneta. Also known as El Sol de México (The Sun of Mexico), Luis Miguel has led a life in the public eye, but little is known about the man behind the star… until now.
During OVERBOARD red carpet on April 30, last Monday, I catch up with Mexican actress Shaula Vega, who plays Irma. Shaula talked about her character, Luis Miguel, and more.
The highly anticipated original production, Luis Miguel Series, airs every Sunday at 9pm/8c exclusively on Telemundo for the United States and Puerto Rico, and throughout Latin America and Spain on Netflix.
About the series
Set in México, Luis Miguel Series explores his childhood in the early 80s and what led up to his massive success as a recording artist in the 90’s. Before being known to the world as “Luis Miguel,” Micky (Izan Llunas and Luis de la Rosa) as he is called within the family, finds great comfort and safety with his adoring mother Marcela and younger brother Alex. Exhibiting a natural talent as a singer, earning acclaim and popularity by the time he reaches the age of 11, his father Luis Rey ramps up an obsessive campaign to turn his oldest son into a superstar, belying his own failed dreams of similar success. As Micky grows into the leading pop star of the era known as Luis Miguel he finds it challenging to strike a balance between his career and private life including his relationships with his true loves, played by Paulina Dávila and Camila Sodi, respectively. As the world thirsts for the carefully nurtured image of tanned masculinity and blazing white smile synonymous with the Acapulco lifestyle that was the hallmark of his early career, what lies underneath is a potent story of how fame and fortune can change a family. Told in a bold style that is as dramatic, emotional, sensual, controversial, and romantic as his musical artistry, Luis Miguel Series adds daring in its scope to illuminate the details of the man that remains El Sol de México.
