WHO WE ARE
Our mission at Scrappy Heart Productions is to create the change we want to see in media. As American Latinx storytellers, we are dedicated to developing diverse stories with universal themes that will make you laugh, cry, or fill our comments section with face-palm emojis. 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, we want to make diverse heroes the stars of their own stories across media.
With our dedicated and engaged 8 million social media followers behind us (#s’grateful for each and every one of you) we are inspired to represent all the underdogs, the wonderful weirdoes, and the Scrappy-Hearted rebels of the world.
