Deadline is reporting that Gina and her company I Can and I Will productions have a first-look deal at Hulu for a drama based on “Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass”
In a competitive situation, Hulu has bought a drama project based on Meg Medina’s award-winning YA book Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass, from Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez and her I Can and I Will Productions, Eugenio Derbez and Ben Odell’s 3Pas and Universal TV, where 3Pas has a first-look deal.
Written by Queen of the South co-executive producer Dailyn Rodriguez, Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass — now in development — tells the story of a diverse, vibrant Brooklyn community confronting bullying, racial tensions and questions of identity. Gina Rodriguez, Dailyn Rodriguez, Derbez and Odell exec produce. 3Pas’ Jessica Pavao and I Can and I Will’s Emily Gipson serve as producers and Medina as a consulting producer.
The book was optioned by 3Pas, whose partners brought it to Rodriguez because they felt it would resonate with the actress, who has campaigned against bulling and has shared her experiences with that.
The project was carved out from the overall deal Rodriguez and her I Can And I Will Productions just signed with CBS TV Studios.
In addition to Yaqui Delgado, 3Pas also has recently sold projects to NBC and ABC. Their next film How to Be a Latin Lover through their first-look with Pantelion/Lionsgate comes out April 28. 3Pas’ feature slate also includes Ponce, about a man claiming to have found the Fountain of Youth, and The Valet, a remake of the French comedy, both for Pantelion/Lionsgate; and Speedy Gonzalez, an animated feature in the works with Warner Bros.
Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass has been honored with the Pura Belpré Award, the Cybils Fiction Award and the International Latino Book Award. Medina was named to CNN’s 10 Visionary Women in America and Latino Stories’ Top Ten Latino Authors to Watch.
Dailyn Rodriguez also has worked on series including The Night Shift, Lie to Me and Ugly Betty. She’s repped by Rothman Brecher and attorney Darren Trattner.
Derbez is repped by UTA and attorney Howard Abramson. Gina Rodriguez is repped by APA and Primary Wave.

The Walking Dead star Steven Yeun, pop star Kelly Clarkson, Oprah Winfrey and Saturday Night Live’s Aidy Bryant are among those lending their voices to The Star, Sony Pictures Animation’s animal take on the first Christmas.
Keegan-Michael Key, Kristin Chenoweth, Anthony Anderson, Gabriel Iglesias, Ving Rhames, Delilah Rene, Kris Kristoferson, Gina Rodriguez, Zachary Levi, Tyler Perry, Tracy Morgan and Christopher Plummer are also in the large cast, which was announced as part of SPA’s presentation Wednesday.

Per SPA, The Star tells of “a small but brave donkey named Bo (who) yearns for a life beyond his daily grind at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams. On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a lovable sheep who has lost her flock, and Dave, a dove with lofty aspirations. Along with three wisecracking camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told — the first Christmas.

Plummer is King Herod, while Rodriguez and Levi are Mary and Joseph, respectively.
