Gentefied's first season was a Peabody Award nominee and a three-time Imagen Foundation award nominee, including Best Comedy Series. While producing Gentefied, Linda adapted the book, I am not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, a New York Times bestseller by Erika L. Sanchez, into a feature film for Anonymous Content (The Revenant, Spotlight) and MACRO (Judas and the Black Messiah, Mudbound). Acquired by and slated to premiere on Netflix, the film will be America Ferrera’s directorial debut.
