Eva Longoria Sells scripts, 3 movies (“Behind the Seams,” “Vega vs. Vega,” and “Soy Tu Duena,”) will be manage by UnbeliEVA-ble Entertainment
Eva Longoria could be plenty busy after “Desperate Housewives” wraps, having sold a pair of scripts to ABC and the CW through her shingle, UnbeliEVA-ble Entertainment.
The Alphabet has bought “Behind the Seams,” a single-camera comedy about two Latina sisters — one a hard-working fashion designer, the other a party-going ex-runway model — who open a bridal boutique after their careers fall apart.
Ernie Bustamante (“Boston Legal”) is onboard as co-exec producer and writer.
Longoria will also exec produce “Vega vs. Vega,” a drama from Warner Bros. Television for CW about a young, successful lawyer who suddenly finds herself forced to go into practice with her mother, a pioneering female attorney with whom she has a love/hate relationship.
Also exec producing are George W. Perkins (“Housewives”), Sunta Izzicupo (“The Ron Clark Story”) and Yahlin Chang (“Pan Am”), who is also writer on the project. Elizabeth Bradley (“The Law Firm”) is onboard as well as a producer.
“Seams” is the second script Longoria has set up at her home network. Already in development is “Soy Tu Duena,” an adaptation of a Mexican telenovela from Televisa, ABC Studios and Lionsgate Television. The drama about a Texas heiress who loses her money is also exec produced by Jorge Zamacona (“10-8: Officers on Duty”) and Tariq Jalil.
Longoria is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment and Bloom Hergott. APA reps Bustamante.
