Menudo Series ‘Súbete a Mi Moto’ to Air on Estrella TV This Month
Before there was CNCO, there was Menudo. The Latin boyband arguably paved the way for Latin boybands to come. Estrella Media announced this month that its channel Estrella TV will air Súbete a Mi Moto, a series based on the Puerto Rican group. Menudo launched the careers of former members Ricky Martin and Draco Rosa.
Menudo fans can catch Súbete a Mi Moto on Feb. 14.
Súbete a Mi Moto launched in Mexico and Latin America in October 2020, but Estrella Media will be airing the series in the U.S. for the first time. Menudo fans can the first episode on Sunday, Feb. 14 at 9 PM EST.
“We are truly delighted to bring Súbete a Mi Moto to the U.S. Hispanic audience,” said Ivan Stoilkovich, EVP of television programming at Estrella Media, in a statement. “Menudo was an international smash hit and the first Latin pop band to cross over to the American mainstream market. I am certain this series will appeal to the nostalgic fans in the U.S. as well as transcend generations to attract new followers to Menudo’s musical legacy.”
The story will be told from the perspective of the band’s creator.
The boyband was first put together in the late ’70s and in the following decade, the quintet became the biggest Latin boyband on Earth. After a few line-up changes, Ricky Martin and Draco Rosa joined in the ’80s, just before the band reached its peak international success.
The show’s title is a reference to one of Menudo’s biggest hits “Súbete a Mi Moto.” Each episode is 60-minutes long and the band’s story is told from the perspective of the businessman who put them together. In the series, Menudo’s founder Edgardo Diaz is played by Yamil Urena.
Súbete a Mi Moto was filmed in Mexico and Puerto Rico. Other stars of the series include Braulio Castro and Rocio Verdejo. Get ready to come along for the ride of Menudo’s life.
