Amazon Studios Acquires Marginal MediaWorks LatinX TV Series!
Written by IMN on 30 Apr 2021
Marginal MediaWorks’ Founder & CEO Sanjay Sharma today announced the company’s official expansion into premium scripted series with “Hummingbird,” an hour long, LatinX genre series. In a competitive bidding situation, the series was sold to Amazon Studios.
“Hummingbird” was developed by Primetime Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Rudy Valdez, working closely with Sharma and writer Marcella Ochoa, with whom MARGINAL also partnered on the recently announced Blumhouse & Amazon film project “Madres.” Ochoa will write the pilot, with Valdez directing. Sharma, Valdez & Ochoa will also serve as Executive Producers on the series. The show is a Stephen King-style American Gothic, from the perspective of a Mexican American family living in the Midwest whose search for the American dream finds them haunted by something far more sinister. The series concept is loosely inspired by Valdez’s life.
