The veteran crooner will be the subject of a 13-episode series called Hasta Que Te Conoci (Until I Met You), which is also the title of one of Gabriel's greatest hits.

The show will include interviews with Gabriel, who will detail his humble beginnings living in poverty to finding fame as one of Mexico's most beloved singers.

Gabriel, real name Alberto Aguilera Valadez, made the announcement in a statement which reads: "This TV show is about my life, and I'm making it with all my love, and affection, and to say thank you to every single person who has been in Juan Gabriel's life. I want it to be a lovely memory, that is my wish."
