You’ll soon be able to see Ricky Martin shake his bon-bon from the comfort of your living room sofa.
Currently wowing fans at the Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, the Latin pop icon, 45, has signed on for a new docuseries which is slated to debut on VH1 in June. Network executives disclosed few details about the show, but called it “revealing, never-been-seen account of one of the most private and guarded global superstars of our time,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“The project will draw on his Vegas residence to illustrate his broader fascinating and inspiring journey,” the announcement continued, “from every pivotal era in his career to the most defining roles of his life.”
The series will hopefully capture what’s turning out to be a prolific time for Martin, who kicked off his Vegas run April 5. The Grammy winner recently signed on for “Versace,” the planned third installment of FX’s “American Crime Story,” which will air in 2018. In November, the singer announced that he’d popped the question to longtime boyfriend Jwan Yosef.
Meanwhile, his Park Theater residency has thus far garnered stellar reviews. “With seemingly infinite energy driven by the peerless charisma of its star, this show is built for the Las Vegas audience of right now,” The Las Vegas Sun’s Brock Radke wrote. “His all-out performance style hasn’t changed at all.”
