Hayley Muñoz

Staff Writer

Hayley Muñoz is a bilingual Latina TV writer and actress from McAllen, Texas. She
studied Radio, Television, and Film at the University of Texas at Austin and participated
in the UTLA Film Program, where she obtained a Development Internship with Wind
Dancer Films. Then upon graduating, she ventured to LA to start working in the industry

She has worked her way up from all the support staff positions in a Writers’ Office while
following the mantra of “si se puede” (yes, you can). As a proud Mexican-American, she
is passionate about creating stories that champion underdogs and celebrate diverse
and relatable characters, regardless of their backgrounds.

Hayley recently wrapped on her fourth season of NANCY DREW, this time as a Staff
Writer, where she co-wrote and co-produced two episodes. Before that, she also
portrayed Temp, a recurring character, in Season 5 of JANE THE VIRGIN.

Looking ahead, Hayley is determined to make an impact in storytelling, utilizing her
distinctive voice to shake up the industry. She remains committed to promoting
inclusivity/representation, giving back to her community, and hopes to spoil her loved
ones the way they deserve.
