This dramatic series offers a view into the very private life of one of the greatest Latin singers of all time. Largely based on an authorized biography and interviews, the first season goes back and forth between Luis Miguel as a talented 11-year-old boy being controlled by a father who saw him as a meal ticket, and the mysterious disappearance of his mother when he reached adulthood. Season two focuses on what happened after his father's death, and on Luis Miguel's attempts to overcome personal challenges and reconnect with loved ones. Throughout it all, the damage his professional success caused to different aspects of his personal life is highlighted.

The conversations are imagined, and some moments are complete works of fiction. There are also scenes that feel like they belong in a Spanish-language telenovela. But Luis Miguel: The Series succeeds at presenting a narrative that is both entertaining and believable. It manages to separate the myth from the man who, despite the odds, remains a household name in Spanish-speaking countries. Enhancing this are Diego Boneta's impressive performances of the crooner's music, which remains popular today. No doubt that Luis Miguel fans will enjoy everything this biopic has to offer.
