Upcoming, Ferrera will co-produce along with Kevin Hart, NBC’s new development, All Fancy, a half-hour series starring Anjelah Johnson, which follows a newly successful 30-something Mexican-American woman who often goes against cultural and social expectations, creating chaos and comedy within her marriage, business and extended family. Ferrera will also executive produce Gentefied, described as a badass Spanglish series about family, community, brown love and the displacement that disrupts it all, Gentefied follows three Mexican-American cousins and their struggle to chase the American Dream, even while that same dream threatens the things they hold most dear. 

In 2014, Ferrera wrapped production on Diego Luna's biography, Cesar Chavez, which centers on the civil-rights activist and labor organizer, Cesar Chavez. Portraying his wife, Ferrera stars opposite Michael Pena and alongside an impressive cast including Rosario Dawson and Gabriel Mann.
