This article examines the narrative strategies that have structured the biographical series of Juan Gabriel, Luis Miguel, and José José transmitted by television channels and streaming platforms with international influence. It focuses primarily on their retrospective stories and struggles to achieve “success”. We discussed how these storylines are reconfigured as melodramas to manage tensions about gender, sexuality, drug addiction and family.

Keywords : Television; melodrama; biographical series.
