Solange Morales


Florida born, Solange Morales was raised by Peruvian-Chinese parents who gifted her with a non-traditional upbringing in the streets of Miami Beach’s Art Deco district while taking her on family trips to Lima, Peru – then a hot-bed of guerilla warfare. It was this constant negotiation of her identity that cultivated her empathy and set her on a journey of writing stories about underdogs, imperfect characters and hip-hop.

After quitting her first job out of college with a likely Ponzi schemer, Solange made the leap to LA to work as an assistant to the writer and producers of the Notorious B.I.G. biopic. She then worked as an Associate Producer on a Tupac and Iron Mike documentary for ESPN before landing in the halls of Columbia University’s MFA film program, where her thesis short film, Mal de Ojo, was acquired by HBO. Solange achieved a lifelong dream of connecting with her musical heroes when she took on the role of Writers’ Assistant for Season 2 of Hulu’s Wu-Tang: An American Saga and penned the penultimate episode. She went on to write on a hip-hop themed mobile game app for B-Real of Cypress Hill, and participated in both the NHMC’s TV Writers Program and WB Television Workshop before staffing on Legacies (CW).
