Segura, who also inked a first-look production deal with the studio, aims to discover and develop emerging Latinx creators.

Mexican producer, actress and activist Olga Segura has partnered with Exile Content to create a Latina Talent Incubator for the development of emerging female and nongender-binary Latinx content creators.

Segura, whose most recent project is the Robert Pattinson and Johnny Depp-starrer Waiting for the Barbarians, also signed a first-look production deal with the film and TV studio, which centers on content about underrepresented groups for global audiences in Spanish and English. She will serve as head of the Latina Talent Incubator, with creative producer and social impact advocate Brittany Zion Estrada running day-to-day operations.

Segura was one of the original signatories of the Time’s Up movement and is a co-founder of The Latinx House, an initiative that aims to create community and opportunities for Latinx voices in and outside of Hollywood while also educating on political issues. She is also a co-founder of Eva Longoria and America Ferrera's Latina digital platform She Se Puede.

“I’m excited to join the Exile family and am looking forward to building tangible opportunities for female Latinx talent and content creators to find a place to share our stories and change the narrative of how we Latinxs are perceived, not only in the U.S. but all around the world,” Segura said in a statement.

Before launching in 2018, Exile's team produced three seasons of Netflix series El Chapo and the Emmy award-winning documentary Science Fair. The studio recently forged a partnership with Endeavor Content to finance, develop and produce Spanish-language scripted television projects as well as to create a fund to acquire IP and pursue development deals with high-profile and emerging talent across Latin America and Spain.

“We are tremendously proud to partner with Olga on the Latina Talent Incubator. I have always admired Olga as an activist in our industry and a determined voice pushing all of us to have important conversations about Latino issues, whether it be in entertainment, policy, representation or beyond," Exile Content co-founder Julia Saenz said. "This new program will result in the discovery of great talent and bring to Exile ideas, perspectives and opportunities to tell new and innovative stories while demonstrating our commitment to emerging Latinx female creators.”
