Salma Hayek has secured a multi-title deal at HBO Max. This is her first-look deal with the streaming platform via her production company Ventanarosa.
The newly formed two-year partnership will have Hayek bring projects to the streaming service first for potential development. Ventanarosa president, Jose Tamez will serve as her production partner.
“We are thrilled to be joining HBO Max and Warner Media. Their 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,” Hayek disclosed.
“Ventanarosa has a history of bringing the most lively and rich stories to life and we are eager to hear all of the wonderful ideas that will be borne out of this partnership,” said Joey Chavez, executive vice president of original drama at HBO Max.
Hayek’s Hollywood presence has been enveloped with a slew of feature films and television shows scoring her multiple award nominations and wins. In 2003, she became an award season contender with her performance in ‘Frida’. She was nominated for an Academy Award, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA.
She doubles as an Emmy winning director in the category of Outstanding Directing in a Children/Youth/Family Special in 2004 and a Golden Globe for Best Musical/Comedy TV Series for her producing work in ‘Ugly Betty’.
Hayek returns to the big screen next year with ‘The Eternals’ opposite Angelina Jolie.
