Ricky Martin will be reliving his young moments this month.
HBO Max has released the first trailer for the four-part documentary Menudo: Forever Young, featuring the 50-year-old Puerto Rican superstar.
From Angel Manuel Soto and Kristofer Ríos, Menudo: Forever Young chronicles the rise and fall of the most iconic Latin American boy band in history, bringing viewers into the world of the popular teen idols’ global tours, magazine covers, ‘80s outfits, and screaming fangirls. But the four-part documentary also exposes that behind the glitz and glamor was a web of abuse and exploitation.
Menudo was formed by producer Edgardo Diaz in 1977 with 5 original members: Ricky Melendez, brothers Carlos and Oscar Meléndez, and the Sallaberry brothers, Fernando and Nefty.
The group changed members often mostly after the pre-teen and early teenage boys aged out around age 15 or 16. Two of its most famous members include Martin and Draco Rosa (as Robbi Rosa).
Menudo: Forever Young is executive produced by Cristina Costantini and Jeff Plunkett of Muck Media, Alex Fumero of Trojan Horse, Bryn Mooser, and Justin Lacob of XTR, and Soto; co-executive producers are Maura Anderson and Rios.
Directors are Soto (E1-E4) and Rios (E3, E4).
