Disney’s 20th Television has signed a new multi-year overall deal with Netflix’s “Gentefied’s” co-creator, Linda Yvette Chávez.

The new deal will see her creating her own shows and also supervising other writers’ dramas and comedies across all of Disney’s platforms.

Linda Yvette Chávez said in a statement:


“Just take one look at the creators Karey Burke, Carolyn Cassidy and how their teams are uplifting at 20th Television and you’ll quickly see a studio investing in a brighter future for representation in media. I’m thrilled that I get to be a part of this family and add this bold Xicana voice to 20th’s legendary canon of television. We’re about to make some bomb-ass shows together and showcase the gorgeous array of stories that exist in our BIPOC communities. With them as my champions I know there’s nothing we can’t achieve. Hollywood’s not ready!”

Karey Burke, President, 20th Television said in a statement:

“Linda is a tour de force writer with a spectacular voice and her series Gentefied is as hilarious as it is powerful. She’s incredibly versatile and she shares our passion for fearless, inclusive storytelling—and on top of all that, she happens to be a fantastic person. Carolyn and I made it our mission to get her to this studio and we’re pinching ourselves she said yes.”

She has currently worked on the upcoming Searchlight Pictures film “Flamin’ Hot”
