Dopamine Expands with Two Female Hires


Spanish screenwriter Amaya Muruzábal and Mexican executive producer Gabriela Valentán have joined Grupo Salinas’s Dopamine.

Muruzábal was named chief content officer, while Valentán was appointed as the chief of production. Muruzábal specializes in managing large teams of scriptwriters for international entertainment and fictional formats, particularly short series. In addition to her experience as director of development for companies such as La Competencia TV and Señor Mono in Spain, she has also worked as script doctor for many international film directors.

Valentán, meanwhile, is an independent Mexican producer with executive experience in scripted projects in Mexico and the U.S. Hispanic markets. Her work includes bio series, dramatized series and documentaries for Bravo Films, Canal Once, Argos, Lemon Studios, Discovery, HBO, Sony Entertainment Television, Telemundo and Televisa, among others.

Dopamine’s CEO, Fidela Navarro, commented, “For the first time in Mexico, we have talented women at two key executive positions in this type of company. Amaya and Gabriela have the experience, the methodology, the sensitivity, the freshness, the vision and the passion that new Mexican content for the world requires. They deserve a challenge like this because they put it all on the line for great content.”
