Montebello scores ‘Skin’

Shingle looks to develop pic with a studio partner

Montebello Entertainment, the film and TV development company formed by Latino media veterans Steven Pena and Tom Flores to develop product for the multicultural urban audience, has optioned the feature film rights to Guy Garcia’s novel “Skin Deep.”

Shingle is looking to develop the feature with a studio partner.

“Deep,” described as a Hispanic-themed crossover project, is the story of a young Harvard-educated attorney who returns home from Manhattan to his East L.A. barrio neighborhood to join the search for a Mexican woman, an illegal alien, who may be the key to a brewing political scandal.

Garcia is teaming with Pena and Flores on development and production of the pic.

Author is working on a book, “The New Mainstream: How Color, Culture and Commerce Are Changing the Future of America,” scheduled for publication in 2004 through Rayo, the Latino-focused imprint of HarperCollins.
