El Gato: Popular Comic Book Series To Be Turned Into OTT Show; Diego Boneta To Star

AN upcoming drama series, based on Richard Dominguez’s comic book El Gato Negro, is currently in development. Titled El Gato, the series will be filmed in both English and Spanish, according to Variety. Diego Boneta is set to lead the cast, with Eric Carrasco adapting the comic for the screen.

Expressing his enthusiasm, Boneta commented, “Bringing El Gato to global audiences is a lifelong ambition fulfilled. Since my days with Three Amigos, this project has been close to my heart. Eric Carrasco and the entire team have crafted a character and world that pays homage to the superhero genre while offering a fresh and expansive narrative. It’s a true privilege to portray Frank and collaborate with my incredible partners at Amazon, MGM, and our fellow producers on this thrilling saga. Buckle up for an exhilarating journey.”

Boneta will portray Frank Guerrero in the series, where he returns to Mexico following his father’s passing only to confront his estranged family embroiled in a power struggle for his father’s business empire. However, Frank’s mourning takes a dramatic turn when he discovers that his sole inheritance, seemingly insignificant land on the border, conceals the lair of a renowned masked vigilante—his father, El Gato. Now, Frank becomes a target. To survive, he must untangle mysteries spanning decades and uncover the truth behind his father’s involvement in a contemporary terror conspiracy.

Production is scheduled to commence in Mexico this spring, with Carrasco serving as executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Turi Meyer and Alfredo Septien. The series will be available on Prime Video upon release.

Boneta, recognized for his roles in films such as Rock of Ages, Terminator: Dark Fate, and the recent Father of the Bride remake, brings his talent to the forefront once again.
