VIS, the division of ViacomCBS International Networks, has just announced this Thursday the development of ‘Bosé’, a ‘biopic’ based on the life of the Spanish artist Miguel Bosé, which will be produced in collaboration with Shine Iberia (‘MasterChef’), Elefantec Global and Legacy Rock. If everything continues as planned, production of the series will begin in early 2022 in Spain.
The ‘Bosé’ series will portray the life of an artist with a unique and very recognizable personality. The six-episode series will be an unheard-of work of art in itself, which will transport viewers to different parts of the singer-songwriter’s career that began in the late 1970s, revealing the stories behind the inspiration, composition and recording of some of his most iconic works and how that success affected his personal life. .
The new fiction, which can be seen on Paramount +, has the support of the artist himself. “After many years of recovering memories, after others of writing, the first season of my life finally arrives”, affirms Miguel Bosé. “Thanks to Shine Iberia’s writing team and its lead producer for shaping this project, thanks to Elefantec and Legacy Rock for their tenacity and vision and, of course, thanks to the enthusiasm of the people at ViacomCBS and Paramount +. Thanks to them this dream will see the light “.
According to the singer, “we join forces to make a life, a beauty, a career something that is already in the memory that belongs to everyone. We started immediately and I am convinced that it will touch many, because all of you were part of and are responsible for what I was, for what I am and for everything that I may become in the future. Thank you for this privilege. ”
A different ‘biopic’
“We are very grateful to Miguel Bosé for the generosity and truthfulness with which he has shared his fascinating life with us,” said Macarena Rey, CEO of Shine Iberia. “It is a ‘biopic’ unlike any other biographical film that, without a doubt, will thrill viewers around the world“.
JC Acosta, president of ViacomCBS International Studios & Networks Americas, has been excited “to show the world the incredible and eclectic life of musical legend Miguel Bosé. We hope this production invokes the same emotions as Bosé’s music and engage our global audience on Paramount +. ”
“We continue to work towards our vision of creating Latino content for the world. We are preparing ‘premium’ series around the biggest stars in the Hispanic space, and Bosé is undoubtedly an icon of Latin pop culture“stressed Jose Baston, co-founder of Elefantec Global.” Now is the time to tell his amazing story, which is perfectly aligned with our strategy of continuing to bring important stories to the screen that enhance Latino culture and its importance around the world. “.
