Regional Mexican act Gerardo Ortiz takes over Hispanic television during the month of January with a double debut on Telemundo and NBC Universo. The first will air on Saturday, Jan. 2 when his Como Un Sueño (Like a Dream) concert film will be broadcast for the first time at 9 p.m. ET on Telemundo. The movie was initially shown at AMC Theaters in nine U.S. cities in October of last year.

Como Un Sueño is a concert film that chronicles Ortiz's life against the backdrop of his tour and the release of his album Hoy Más Fuerte (Stronger Today). The 90-minute film was directed by Jessy Terrero and produced by Big Vida Entertainment and Del Studios, an arm of Del Records, the indie label Ortiz is signed to (with distribution by Sony Music U.S. Latin).

“This movie is very interesting, because besides being an actor for certain parts, in others people can see only Gerardo Ortiz and what I do," Ortiz told Billboard. "It is a dream that NBC Universo will broadcast the movie and I’m very excited."

Ortiz’s second debut is a four-episode documentary titled Gerardo Ortiz: Sin Censura (Gerardo Ortiz: Uncensored), to be broadcast on Sunday, Jan. 3 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC Universo. The doc focuses on the singer's life beyond the stage. Fans will be able to peek into his inner world, know his team, family and history, beginning in the small town of Badiraguato, Sinaloa, where Ortiz’s career began at eight years old.

Sin Censura goes even further on what happened behind the scenes and my personal life. People can see where I am from, my roots, family and my adventures," says Ortiz.    

The four episodes will be broadcast on successive Sundays.
