- The long-awaited original series about the intense and moving life of renowned artist Miguel Bosé comes exclusively to Spain on the platform
SkyShowtime, the new major streaming service for Europe, brings exclusively to Spain its long-awaited original series Bosé, the biopic about the dramatic and passionate life of the renowned artist Miguel Bosé, which will be available from 3 March on the platform.
From birth, Miguel Bosé was destined to break the mould and invent his own, outside the rigid conventions imposed when he was growing up. His father was one of the biggest names in bullfighting, traditional and conservative. While his mother was a great Italian film star, sophisticated and modern. Thus, Bosé inherited his father’s character and his mother’s beauty, and the rebelliousness and elegance of both.
The separation of his parents was a scandal in Spain in the late 60s and at the age of only 11, Miguel began to forge a character as seductive as it was disruptive, with which he would shake the world a decade later.
Surrounded by a halo of mystery, he has always been very jealous of his privacy and few know his story. For the first time, Miguel Bosé will share part of his private life, with its strengths and weaknesses, and that of an artist with a unique and very recognisable personality, exclusively on SkyShowtime. Bosé is an unprecedented work of art in its own right, transporting viewers to different moments in the singer-songwriter’s life and career that began in the late 1970s.
Each of the six episodes of the series focuses on a Miguel Bosé song and tells the story behind his life at the time, showing its inspiration, composition and recording. In this way, through flashbacks, the viewer travels through the different moments of the artist’s life based on his hits. The present of the series takes place during the promotion of his multi-platinum album Papito, a special moment for Miguel on a personal level, because it is when he decides to realise a long-delayed dream: to become a father.
José Pastor and Iván Sánchez play Miguel Bosé at different points in his life. In addition, part of the cast includes Nacho Fresneda (Luis Miguel Dominguín), Valeria Solarino (Lucía Bosé), Alicia Borrachero (La Tata), Ana Jara (Rosa Lagarrigue), José Sospedra (Pablo Alborch), Miguel Ángel Muñoz (Julio Iglesias) and Mariela Garriga (Giannina Facio), among others.
The original series is produced by Paramount, in collaboration with Shine Iberia (Banijay Iberia), Elefantec Global and Legacy Rock. It is directed by Miguel Bardem and Fernando Trullols and scripted by Ángeles González Sinde, Isabel Vázquez and Boris Izaguirre.
