Mota served as executive producer of East Los High, an award-winning drama series that earned 6 Emmy nominations during its run on Hulu for its realistic portrayal of Latino high school students. The show is the streaming platform’s longest-running original series. Mota began his career as an entrepreneur at 15, when he developed a storytelling board game present in over 5,000 schools. It later became a YA book collection and has been used by many Forbes 500 companies and the United Nations to foster creativity and innovation among their leaders. The game’s patent was used for a literacy social network employed by 700,000 kids. Later, Mota became a serial entrepreneur, pioneering multi-platform content by creating products and IPs for TV and film. Most recently, he designed the School of Series, a TV series incubator that will shape the next generation of showrunners and content creators in Brazil by training up to 800 writers and producers each year.
