Jorge Rivera


Jorge Rivera is a former true-crime TV producer who now writes fictionalized murders instead of producing stories about real ones. After years of traveling all over the U. S. interviewing cops, criminals, and killers, he naively decided that navigating Hollywood as a TV writer would be a far less dangerous career choice.

Jorge was a fellow of the National Hispanic Media Coalition’s Writers Program and the Fox Writers Intensive. He’s written on the Fox Television series A.P.B., and prior to joining the Writers Guild of America, produced a string of true-crime hits for the Investigation Discovery Network, including TWISTED SISTERS, the network’s highest-rated true-crime series premiere. He currently serves as the Vice-Chair of the Latinx Writers Committee at the WGA.

National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is a woman-led 501(c)(3) non-profit civil and human rights organization that was founded to eliminate hate, discrimination, and racism toward the Latino communities.
