Carolina was raised in Guatemala City at the height of the civil war, but was lucky enough to experience said war in a bubble, spending her time indoors, reading and watching cable TV, perfecting an American accent while toggling between Melrose Place and CNN. Later, at Tulane University, she became captivated by Latin American history and literature, cultivating a lifelong passion for exploring the current and past events that have defined our Latiné experience — but which have been erased from the history books. Carolina has spent the last decade writing and producing on multiple Emmy-winning series, most recently serving as writer and Executive Producer on Orange is the New Black. Like half the TV-writing population, she currently resides in Silverlake with her director husband, their two daughters, and a rotating cast of four legged friends. Her pet peeves include writing about herself in the third person.
Diego was born in Buffalo, NY and lived there until his parents divorce caused the family to move back to his mother’s native Venezuela when he was 12. After recovering from culture clash, he spent his days recreating American gangster films with his friends. While that didn’t do much for his grades, it did serve him well in film school, where he quickly discovered his passion for directing. Currently, Velasco is pursuing said passion as the Producing Director and Co-EP for the second season of Twenties, created by Lena Waithe. His first feature, La Hora Cero (The Zero Hour) broke all Venezuelan Box Office records and garnered 35 festival awards. On the TV front, Diego directed the immigration episode for the final season of the Emmy-Award-winning Orange is the New Black, and was the Producing Director and Co-EP for Social Distance, Netflix's first scripted anthology written and produced remotely during the COVID 19 pandemic. Additional TV credits include Gentefied, Teenage Bounty Hunters, Diary of A Future President.
