Founded by Gina Rodriguez in 2015, the mission of I Can and I Will Productions is to "create art that tells stories from the unheard and unseen, discover and expose new talent and increase empathy and understanding for all communities."

While Rodriguez will also be voicing the title character in Netflix's upcoming Carmen Sandiego animated series — due to premiere in 2019, the live-action film will be a standalone story. No writer or director is currently attached.

"Don't ask where ... ask who." @Netflix (just call me Carmen 😉)
