Natalia Mejia is a film and television writer based in Los Angeles. She most recently worked as a staff writer on the second season of the Netflix original Spanish-language series Ingobernable, for which she worked as an associate producer during the first season.
In her time at UCLA she received an Honorary Mention at the 2017 Screenwriter's Showcase for her feature drama Frankie, the story of a Mexican-American boy who fights racism during the Chicano Movement of the 1960s in Los Angeles.
She was selected as the 2016 recipient of the Teri Schwartz Family and Friends Scholarship Fund. In 2017, she was awarded the George Burns and Gracie Allen Scholarship and Fellowship in Comedy.
She was born and raised in Mexico City, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Communications from Mexico’s most prestigious program at Iberoamericana University. In 2010 she was offered a scholarship to study a Certificate Program in Melodramatic TV writing also at Iberoamericana.
By 2011, she started working as a staff writer for Bienvenida Realidad, a one hour- episode TV show that spun over 120 episodes and was co-produced by Sony Pictures Latin America. In 2012 she started working for Televisa, where she created and co-wrote Te presento a Valentín, one of the first webseries projects for the telecommunications giant. This led to her being offered to write three episodes for the half-hour comedy series Cásate conmigo, mi amor and later to primetime telenovelas, working under the wing of prolific producer and telenovela titan Juan Osorio. She worked as a literary assistant on the hugely successful Porque El Amor Manda and as a script editor on Mi Corazón Es Tuyo, broadcasted by Televisa in Mexico and Univision in the United States.
As a bilingual and bicultural woman, Natalia believes in the much-needed representation of the rich diversity in the United States in film and television. Her goal as a writer is to create content that speaks to a diverse audience and that celebrates multiculturalism.
