Although eight years have passed since the death of the iconic Roberto Gómez Bolaños, better known in the artistic world as “Chespirito”, the Mexican comedian is still alive in the collective memory of Latin America for characters such as El Chavo del 8, El Chapulín Colorado, La Chilindrina , Quico and Mr. Barriga.
After several years of waiting and after the Mexican comedian dedicated a large part of his life to creating memorable characters to amuse society, it was recently reported that the platform streaming HBO Max, in collaboration with Roberto Gómez Fernández, son of “Chespirito”, is working on a bioseries that will tell the life and career of the Mexican actor.
Wanting without wanting, a tentative name for the bioseries, will be directed by HBO Max, Warner Bros., Discovery, THR3 Media Group and Roberto Gómez Fernández, son of the famous comedian with Florinda Meza. The project promises to make known how the ideas arose to create and bring to the screen the various personalities that “Chespirito” played throughout his career.
Using one of the most memorable phrases that El Chavo del 8 said as the title, with the biographical series, his son seeks to show the public Roberto Gómez Bolaños beyond the actor, as he wants to present the man who was a father, husband, friend and brother , that person who became an entertainment icon in Latin America and the world.
Having the opportunity to tell your father’s story can be such a joy. Especially when your dad is Roberto Gómez Bolaños. My father was a little man with a big heart. And so, we will have the task of showing the world a talented being and, at the same time, the father, the husband, the friend, the brother.
– Roberto Gomez Fernandez
