The agreement stipulates that the Ventanarosa production business, which she co-owns with her husband and two sons, will submit ideas to the WarnerMedia-owned streaming service for consideration.
Siobhan Flynn is the Head of Production & Development at Ventanarosa, and Jose Tamez, the company’s President, is her producing partner.

Over the past two decades, Tamez and Hayek have collaborated on a number of films, including Frida (for which Hayek received an Oscar nomination for best actress) and Annie Award nominees Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet and Beatriz at Dinner.
The duo collaborated on the creation of the critically acclaimed shows In the Time of the Butterflies and Ugly Betty, both of which received Emmy, Golden Globe, and Peabody Awards.
