Our mission at Scrappy Heart Productions is to create the change we want to see. As American Latina storytellers, we are dedicated to elevating diverse perspectives with universal themes, making underdogs the heroes of their own stories across all media.


Growing up, we didn’t feel represented on screen, so with D.I.Y. attitudes, scrappy fighting spirits, and a lot of heart, we worked to become those characters for ourselves. We are that stubborn. Now, with our dedicated and engaged 8 million social media followers behind us, we are inspired to represent the next generation of wonderful weirdoes and Scrappy-Hearted rebels.
