ViacomCBS International Studios greenlights biopic series Bosé for Paramount+

ViacomCBS’ global content division ViacomCBS International Studios (VIS) is partnering with Shine Iberia, Elefantec Global and Legacy Rock on a biopic series based on the life of Spanish singer-songwriter Miguel Bosé.

The six-episode series will launch as a Paramount+ original in international markets, with filming set to begin in Spain in early 2022.

The project explores the life of the famed Latin artist and actor, revealing the stories behind the inspiration, composition and recording of some of his most iconic hits. Since his career began in the 1970s, Bosé has become an icon of Latin music, topping the charts in several markets with his signature baritone and ability to span many genres including teen pop, disco, new wave, post-punk and art rock.

JC Acosta, president of ViacomCBS International Studios and Network Americas, said: “We hope this production invokes the same emotions as Bosé’s music and engages our global audiences on Paramount+.”
