Victoria Nguyen currently serves as the Vice President of Development and Production at Rebel Maverick. After being a PA on independent sets and interning at management companies, she landed at eOne in international acquisitions and then pivoted to the development department. She later worked in development at Valparaiso Pictures, managing the development slate and shepherding new projects and voices into the company - including the films STRAIGHT UP (currently on Netflix), PIG (acquired by Neon), and ON THE COUNT OF THREE (premiered at Sundance 2021).
At Rebel Maverick, Victoria helps develop projects for film and TV, focusing on diversity and inclusion of stories that are often overlooked. Rebel Maverick is a Los Angeles-based productions company co-run by Afro-Latinx queer writer-producer team, Matt Nicholas and Nastassja Kayln. They tell stories about the marginalized and underrepresented in a way that normalizes these experiences and reduces the stigma of being an "other". They champion stories in the film, television, and digital media space that put women at the forefront, give a platform to BIPOC, queer and differently-abled individuals, and more who are struggling with otherness and cultural displacement.
The company currently has series set up at Sony Pictures Television, such as BEEFING! which is based on a Vice Article with Vijal Patel supervising. They also are producing two other series with Sony Pictures TV: an anime (XOGENASYS) and half-hour comedy (CAMI & BO) with Mike Royce supervising, both of which will star Jesse T. Usher from THE BOYS. Also on the TV front, they are developing series with Common's Stardust Films, an anime (BLOODLINE); Kyra Sedgwick's Big Swing Productions, a one-hour drama (SHATTERED FACES); and Gina Rodriguez's I Can & I Will, a kids animated series (HEIRS TO DESTINY). On the film front, an adaptation of short story SONATA is set up at Viola Davis' JuVee Productions. In addition, a psychological thriller adaptation of Shakespeare's Othello (entitled INVIDIA) with 42 M&P, and they are adapting and are producing an article based on the largest cash robbery in American history (THE DUNBAR HEIST) with Caleeb Pinkett's Twenty-Five8 Entertainment producing. They are also producing feature adaptations of the New York Times bestselling novel, THESE VIOLENT DELIGHTS with Regina King's Royal Ties Productions and 42 M&P.
