Rags to riches––that’s what defines Nicky Jam in his new authorized bio-series Nicky Jam: El Ganador for Netflix. The 13-episode series will be premiering on the platform internationally on the 12th of April. The series will be narrated by Nicky Jam himself while a young actor acts as his younger self who rose to fame despite his rough beginning.
Nicky Jam: El Ganador is directed by Jessy Terrero and produced by Endemol Shine Boomdog, one of Endemol Shine North America’s divisions. Juan Diego Medina of La Industria Inc. alongside Sergio Pizzolante will be serving as executive producers.
Here’s the synopsis of the bio-series below:
“Nicky Jam: El Ganador” tells the life story of award-winning Nicky Jam, a singer-songwriter, who has become a worldwide music phenomenon. From his humble and troubled start in Boston, to his downfall on the streets, to becoming the king of one of the most popular musical genres, this is not only the life of Nicky Jam, but the history of reggaeton itself.”
“I’ve been hearing from many of my fans on social media and when I talk with them in person, that they’ve been waiting for the chance to see ‘El Ganador’ in the U.S. on Netflix,” said Nicky Jam. “Now they will get to see it starting April 21 and I hope they enjoy it like so many others have across the world. I’m really proud of what we created.”
“I am excited about bringing this level of story-telling that is related to reggaeton music,” added Terrero. “The genre’s popularity gives our story and others like it the opportunity to reach a much larger audience. This is my mission with Cinema Giants. Nicky’s story is inspirational in so many ways. I am proud to be part of it.”
Nicky Jam: El Ganador will be premiering on Netflix on the 21st of April, so watch out for that!
