Linda Yvette Chavez
Linda Yvette Chávez is an award-winning Xicana screenwriter, producer, and director. She co-created Netflix’s much-anticipated series GENTEFIED with Marvin Lemus. What started as a digital series that premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, grew into a TV series at the center of a six-network bidding war that found its home with the good people of Netflix.
In a past life, Linda helped form and establish COMEDIVA, a successful digital platform and production studio. As VP of Programming, she developed, wrote, and produced tons of viral sketches and digital series for clients like Nickelodeon, MiTu Network, Pepsi, and Univision where she was responsible for co-visioning and establishing Univision's first English-language digital platform, FLAMA. Linda’s work has received millions of views and has been featured on CNN, Good Morning America, Wired, AdWeek, and The Huffington Post.
