The first episode of The Secret Life Of Lele Pons is available to watch on YouTube.
Lele Pons has officially premiered the first of five episodes for her new docuseries, which focuses on her battle with Tourette Syndrome and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
The series, which was directed by Emmy-award winning director Alicia Zubikowksi, takes viewers behind the scenes of Lele’s day-to-day struggles with her conditions, with a specific focus on her OCD diagnosis.
Speaking in a video uploaded to her channel on 5 May, Lele says:
“You’re going to see a more intimate part of my life, something a little bit more emotional than what I usually post, and it’s going to be interactions with my family, my friends – how I act behind the scenes, as well as how I’ve been able to cope with this disorder my whole life.”
Lele was first diagnosed with OCD in 2010, when she was 13 years old. It’s something she describes as having been “my deepest, darkest secret”, which she hasn’t shared with her viewers.
The Secret Life of Lele Pons has been in production for two years, after Lele approached the co-founders of Shot Studios, John Shahidi and Sam Shahidi.
