I’m Danny Rivas. I Graduated from Cal State LA in 2019 with a degree in Television Film and Media with an emphasis in screenwriting and community, impact, media. I completed four internships during this time all in development for film, scripted TV, and unscripted, as well as talent management. I am an Alumni of the Evolve Entertainment Fund (EEF), a group launched by Eric Garcetti & Eva DuVernay, which was then absorbed by Group Effort Initiative (GEI), launched by Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. In late 2019, I was selected to be on the Television Academy’s Diversity and Inclusion Unscripted pilot program launched by Cris Abrego and placed at ITV America for unscripted development.
During the pandemic, I pursued a different work environment, and joined a Fire and Fuels Reduction Crew. I responded to natural disasters throughout California and in 2021 I was full-time paid fire fighter in a Type 1 Hand-crew with CAL FIRE.
In February of 2022, I accepted a Coordinator position at Endemol Shine North America (now Banijay Americas). On my time off, I also focus on flying drones and you’ll most likely see me at all the Latino mixers. I’m very interested in helping you develop your story and have a particular interest in casting.
