Gloria Calderón Kellett has landed her first series order under her overall deal at Amazon, Variety has learned.
Amazon has greenlit the one-hour romantic comedy series “With Love.” It follows the Diaz siblings, Lily and Jorge, who are on a mission to find love and purpose. The Diaz siblings cross paths with seemingly unrelated residents during some of the most heightened days of the year –the holidays. The series is planning to begin production in June with plans to launch it at the end of 2021.

“I started writing as a way to create characters and stories that represented myself and the community I love,” Calderón Kellett said. “After such a heavy year, there was nothing I wanted more than to see a happy, warm, loving family that looked like mine, celebrating trauma-free and falling in love. So, to be bringing that family to life as my first project with Amazon Studios feels especially personal and is incredibly exciting. I cannot wait to share ‘With Love’ this holiday season!”
Calderón Kellett will write and executive produce the series under her GloNation banner, which was signed to an overall deal at Amazon in November 2019. The pilot will be directed and executive produced by Meera Menon.
“With Love is a special project and Gloria at her best, creating a world with a vibrant family at its center, hysterical circumstances, and so much heart and soul. We’re so proud of what’s to come of this series and can’t wait for the world to fall in love with it,” said Marc Resteghini, US and Global Head of Development for Amazon Studios.
Calderón Kellett has received widespread acclaim for her work as co-creator, co-showrunner, executive producer, and actress on the rebooted version of “One Day at a Time.” The series reimagined the classic sitcom from the perspective of a Cuban family. Her other credits include “How I Met Your Mother,” “Rules of Engagement,” and “Devious Maids.”
She is repped by UTA, Odenkirk Provissiero Ent. and Felker Toczek.
