“We’re both bilingual, bicultural, first-generation Americans. Like us, there are millions more who coexist across various cultures and communities and whose stories are important, compelling, entertaining, and ready to be embraced by mainstream audiences. We’re excited to bring those stories to audiences everywhere,” said Tabsch.
“Coming up with a name is challenging, so when in a pitch an exec said, ‘I get it—it’s a Trojan horse,’ we realized that’s basically what we do: take something larger than life, stranger than fiction, and sneak in a deeper analysis”’ Fumero shared.
Fumero and Tabsch collaborated recently with Cristina Costantini on the hit documentary film, Mucho Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado in 2020 for Netflix.
Fumero previously served as VP, Original Programming for HBO, where his projects included 2 Dope Queens, Random Acts of Flyness, the Untitled Jon Stewart Project, All Def Comedy, Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons, Felipe Esparza: Translate This, and Chris Gethard: Career Suicide, among others.
Tabsch’s credits also include The Last Resort and Dolphin Lover. Named a ’40 under 40′ Documentary filmmaker by DocNYC, his work has been included at festivals like Sundance, SXSW, and HotDocs. Tabsch is also co-hosting the upcoming podcast Paradise Lost: Crime in Miami, produced in partnership with Sonoro for IHeartRadio.
Both are repped by WME.
