Gloria Calderón Kellett

Writer / Actor
"I’m thrilled to be part of National Hispanic Media Coalition’s first ever Visionary Alliance. NHMC’s programs have given aspiring Latine writers a stepping stone to break into the industry and lend their voices to hit productions we all know and love. I am honored to be part of their mission to achieve a more diverse and inclusive industry that values and uplifts our stories and experiences."

She was an executive producer, co-creator, co-showrunner, director, and actress on the Emmy-winning sitcom “One Day at a Time”. Her critically acclaimed Amazon Original series, “With Love” is the first series coming out of an overall deal between her company, Glonation and Amazon Studios. Along with Blumhouse Television and Spotify, Glonation is also producing “The Horror of Dolores Roach” based on the hit Gimlet podcast reuniting her with star Justina Machado.

The proud daughter of Cuban immigrants, Calderón Kellett graduated from Loyola Marymount University and went on to earn a Masters degree in Theatre from the University of London. She spent her early years as a writer/producer on numerous shows including Devious Maids and How I Met Your Mother. Her acting credits include Jane The Virgin, Angie Tribeca, Dead To Me, How I Met Your Mother, and One Day at a Time. She also appeared as a narrator on Drunk History (New Orleans). Kellett is also a sought after director having directed episodes of One Day at a Time, Mr. Iglesias, Merry Happy Whatever, United We Fall, and the Mad About You revival among others.

She is an ambassador for the non-profit ReFrame which celebrates and encourages gender parity in front of and behind the camera. She is also a founding member of the UNTITLED LATINX PROJECT, a group of Latine show runners who advocate on behalf of the Latine community (by such efforts as the Dear Hollywood initiative) to help studios identify ways to support and tell Latine stories, as well as The Latinx List (in partnership with the Black List and the Latinx Tracking board) to identify unproduced work by upcoming Latine artists. She is a member of the Creative Coalition where she fights to support the arts and arts programs by going to DC and meeting with members of congress to encourage their support for the National Endowment for the Arts. She also recently partnered with the Latinx House/Adelante to support up and coming Latina directors to help them have set experience on her show WITH LOVE. She also launched a “Hollywood 101” web series with Buzzfeed’s PeroLike. The series offers free advice to new artists at the beginning of their entertainment careers.

Awards for her work include The Television Academy Honors, The Geffen TrailBlazer Award, Mental Health America Media Award, ALMA Award, Imagen Award, Vanguard Award, NHMC Award, Sentinel Award, and The Voice Award. She has been honored as an industry leader by The Hollywood Reporter in their Top Women in Entertainment issue, the THR100 list issue, and their 50 Agents of Change issue.

National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is a woman-led 501(c)(3) non-profit civil and human rights organization that was founded to eliminate hate, discrimination, and racism toward the Latino communities.
