Gato Grande Sets First English-Language Comedy Series ‘Climax’ From Elena Crevello

EXCLUSIVE: Gato Grande–an Amazon MGM Studios company–has set their first English-language comedy series titled Climax from Mexican American writer Elena Crevello (Grace and Frankie, American Auto, Vida). The project is currently being shopped.

Climax follows former party girl Alma who, after surviving a near-fatal car accident, finds herself with an unexpected ability: every time she sleeps with someone, she sees a vision of how and when that person is going to die. When she realizes that a one-night stand has only a few days left to live, Alma must decide how far she will go to save his life and how to handle her new, life-changing ability.

Now that she can glimpse the future, what responsibility does she have to change it? Is this her chance to make a difference… or a curse on all future relationships?

“Elena Crevello is one of the brightest voices in comedy television right now and is doing a tremendous job bringing this edgy, hilarious series to life. With a Spanish origin, Climax is another great example of the multicultural approach we have at Gato Grande,” shared Gonzalez Vargas.

The company develops and produces premium content that amplifies Latino voices for mainstream audiences. Founded and led by Emmy-nominated producer, Carla Gonzalez Vargas, Gato Grande is a bi-cultural company based in Los Angeles and Mexico City, producing content in both English and Spanish. Prior projects include the Latin-American hit Luis Miguel: The Series for Netflix, which starred Diego Boneta in the titular role, and Libre de Reír from Prime Video.

Climax is the latest project from its English-language division launched in February. It is written and produced by Crevello with co-executive producer Sergio Sancho (Itxaso and the Sea, Una vida una cena), who originally developed the concept in Spain.

Executive producers include Gato Grande CEO Carla Gonzalez Vargas (Wednesday, Luis Miguel: The Series), and is under the creative leadership of Gato Grande VP of Film and TV Development, Megan Espinoza.

Climax joins previously announced Gato Grande projects: the drama series, Clipperton, based on the best-selling novel Isle of Passion by Laura Restrepo and the satirical mystery Miami Spice, based on Raquel V. Reyes’s hit novel Mango, Mambo and Murder. The production company is represented by Artists First.
