After the death of Vicente Fernández on December 12, 2021, mourning overshadowed the artistic environment as the singer he was considered the last great star of Mexican vernacular music. With his death, information began to circulate regarding the personal and artistic life of the deceased at the age of 81 in his native Jalisco.
And among the projects that began to spread was the singer’s series, which began to be recorded when the charro was still alive. Vicente even collaborated with the script and He gave his permission to carry out the project that Jaime Camil is already preparing with the Colombian television Snail TV.
more recently too a second bioseries based on the life of the singer was released, this one starred by the also Mexican regional singer Paul Montero and produced by Televisa together with Univision. What caught our attention the most, apart from the evident competition that will take place between the two series, is that the production of Juan Osorio will count as the basis of its libretto the book written by the journalist Olga Wornat The last king, where he mentions unflattering passages for the charro and even mentions an alleged relationship between Gerardo Fernández, son of the deceased, with organized crime.
Against this background, the journalist Gustavo Adolfo Infante announced that Alejandro Fernández is very upset against Pablo Montero, whom he considers his friend, for having agreed to star in a project that will probably “stain the memory” of his famous father:
“Alejandro Fernández is not warmed up by the sun against Pablo Montero and here’s the story: as you know there are two versions of the life of the Charro from Huentitan: one is doing it Caracol for the company Netflix, they are producing it and Jaimito Camil is starring. And another is produced by Juan Osorio for Televisa, and Pablo Montero is starring in it”, said the reporter on his program First hand.
“Televisa I understand you have a hard feeling, a feeling, because when it was a match, a Chivas-America final, the top executives of this company went to the ranch of Los tres foals, they told him ‘Vicente, we want you to say goodbye with An Aztec in the Aztec‘. Then they said goodbye at the stadium ‘and we also want you to do the bioseries’ and Vicente said yes’.” added the communicator.
“And they say that finally Gerardo Fernández apparently signed with snail and they say it was millions of dollars, like ten or twelve million dollars and he sold the rights to the company snail, being that Televisa Who is has made the film and musical career of Vicente Fernández at a television level.”
Gustavo Adolfo listed the programs of Televisa that they have counted on the participation of Vicente Fernández over the years, so the making of the series with the Colombian company would be a kind of disloyalty:
“Do you know how many always on sunday, how many mexican nights, many Domingos Herdez, many Lola Beltran studio, many Eco, many bad night no, The move… There are thousands and thousands of hours of Vicente Fernández and then they took Mrs. Olga Wornat’s book, The last king, to be able to do the series”, he expressed.
And it is that according to the journalist, the Montero and Fernández families have been friends, but with the series about to be released, Pablo would have “fallen from grace.”
“Pablo Montero has already recorded 20 of the 50 songs, they say that Montero is singing very well right now, that Camil is singing very well and that finally Alejandro Fernández is upset because he considers Montero his friend, because Montero’s father and mother were Vicente’s compadres and that he has done this seems bad to them ”.
“They told me that Montero is afraid of the Fernández power at the palenque level, at the presentation level, because from some places they are partners, and from others, because they simply say ‘if they hire so-and-so, The foal does not appear here’, then it can be complicated for Pablo Montero”, concluded the journalist.
