You Real World fanatics, open up your Real World files to 1994…Season Three. Pedro Zamor. In case you have no idea who Pedro was…he was a person living with AIDS and a cast mate on Season Three of The Real World. He has since passed away but his memory lives on and will continue to do so with a film called Pedro, which is told through the eyes of his friends and family.
BMP Films President, Jon Murray said, “His story originally ignited a national dialogue, permanently impacted our consciousness around the challenges of HIV, and gave untold millions the courage to open up about their sexual orientation. For those of us who remember him as a treasured television friend, and for a new generation coming to his story for the first time, we remain grateful for the gift of his story.”
“Pedro made us promise to tell his story to his very last breath; this film delivers on that promise by telling his entire life story in a scripted film – including his early life in Cuba, his teen years in Miami and the final months of his life as he fought to stay alive. For the first time viewers will see all the forces that made Pedro the man he was and gave him the courage to take his message of AIDS education to a nationwide audience.”
Looks like an interesting trailer, however, is MTV pushing the emotional vibe a little too far here?
Coincidentally, Pedro is sponsored by Puffs. Ok, we kid…but it SHOULD be!
Pedro premieres on April 1st at 8pm ET/PT.
