Former Sony Music big boss Tommy Mottola is working on an HBO documentary titled “The Latin Explosion,” with will include talents such as Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Thalía, Eva Longoria, Sofía Vergara, Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan, George Lopez and John Leguizamo as the narrator for both, the English version and a voice-over version in Spanish for HBO Latino. This will make it the largest pool of Latino talent to ever assemble for a film, and it’s probably because Mottola started some of these stars’ careers after signing them while at Sony.

Thalía’s husband left Sony 12 years ago, when he was at the very top of his game, and now, he will be the executive producer for the documentary, which will be a tell-all about the “history of Latin music and how it has influenced culture — beyond Latino culture, into American culture.” Mottola took great part in the crossing over for some of the participating stars, after some of them started out in their home countries, before making it big in the US.

The idea could’ve come to Mottola after starring in the PBS documentary “Latin Music USA,” narrated by Jimmy Smits, and the film is slated to debut at Sundance 2016, before hitting the small screens later that year. We cant wait!
