Eva Longoria Signs on to Produce ABC Adaptation of Telenovela
Eva Longoria is retuning to ABC-- kind of. The "Desperate Housewives" alumna has just signed on to produce a new series called "Trust." The soapy drama will be based upon the telenovela "Pura Sangre" which is produced by Longoria's UnbeliEVAble Entertainment and is very popular in Colombia.
According to Deadline, the show, written by Katie Lovejoy ("Dracula"), "Trust" will follow David Montenegro, a humble attorney in Miami who is given the chance to become the Trustee of the Lagos estate. David takes the job to try and rekindle a romance with his first and only love, Rosella Lagos - who is now engaged to another man - but before long, he finds himself sucked into her dysfunctional family and discovers that, in a world of so much money, the only true currency is trust.
The project stems from UnbeliEVAble's first-look deal with Uni TV. UnveliEVAble's Longoria and Ben Spector executive produce with Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun and Gene Stein.
