SOMOS Distribution, the international content distribution company headed by Luis Villanueva and part of SOMOS Group, has licensed "Súbete a mi Moto" to Amazon Prime Video where the new series will be available to Prime Video customers in over 200 countries and territories.  

The series tells the story of one of the most popular Latino pop music bands and comes from producers SOMOS Productions, Endemol Shine Boomdog and Piñolywood Studios.

"Súbete a mi Moto" is the story about the Puerto Rican band of the 70s, Menudo. The plot narrates the unprecedented success of a band that launched figures such as Ricky MartinDraco Rosa and others to stardom. The teenage group achieved significant international projection, led by Edgardo Diaz, creator of the concept. The band remained attractive and appealing to its audience by rotating its members when they reached the age of 16. The audience will enjoy the songs and will get to know details of a group that had millions of fans around the world. "Súbete a mi Moto" consists of 15 episodes of 60 minutes.
