Talk about the most influential figures in Mexico and Luis Miguel’s name is on the list. Referred to as The Sun of Mexico, Miguel has worked long and hard to receive this title and be worthy of it, even after all this time. The youngest Grammy winner, at the age of 11, he is the best Latin singer of all time. He is known not only for experimenting with his music in all its forms, but also for fueling life into a classic Mexican genre which was otherwise dying. A person like him is sure to have an interesting story and this is what forms the basis of ‘Luis Miguel La Serie’.
The series is directed by Humberto Hinojosa and Natalia Beristain. 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.
