Spanish legend, Julio Iglesias, and father of Enrique Iglesias, is getting his well-deserved Netflix moment with the streaming giant announcing on Thursday, February 8, 2024, an upcoming documentary series about the To All the Girls I've Loved Before singer’s life.

Following the announcement, the legendary singer released a statement of his own revealing that "for the first time" he will be part of the creative process, and he will tell the truth about his life, with a little help from the streaming giant. He said:

"After the many speculations, books and documentaries in which I have not been involved, for the first time I have decided to tell the truth about my life to a universal company like Netflix, after much deliberation, finally, a very touching letter sent to me by Bela Bajaria, chief content officer at Netflix, was enough to convince me that Netflix was the ideal company to develop this project. I feel grateful to a lot of people from many countries who have supported me and have boosted my life."
