HBO Max will become the first port of call to develop Hayek’s projects at Ventanarosa, which is led by president Jose Tamez and Siobhan Flynn, head of production & development.

Hayek added: “[HBO Max and Warner Media]’s team of passionate, talented and open-minded executives are a great support in our mission to make high quality global television that explores and celebrates diversity and inclusivity.”
