Salvador Paniagua is currently developing his television show Funny Brown People with Kontakto Entertainment and A Really Good Home Pictures. He recently sold his script But She Wasn’t Perfect to PixL Television. Paniagua participated in Film Independent's Project:Involve Writer/Director fellowship and NALIP's Writers Lab. Paniagua’s short films have appeared in the Sacramento International Latino Film Festival and the San Diego Latino Film Festival, among others. Paniagua was a finalist for the ABC/Disney Feature Writing Fellowship Program. He also received a grant from the Mercury Latino Lens Challenge to shoot Los Tamales, a comedic and warm-hearted story about a 7-year-old boy's trek across the neighborhood which featured Modern Family’s Rico Rodriguez in his debut role.
Paniagua discovered his love of cinema while an undergrad at Stanford University producing shows for the student TV station, SCBN.
