Eva Longoria set to release film My Daughter’s Quinceañera
Universal Pictures has signed a two-year, first-look production agreement with Eva Longoria and her UnbeliEVAble Entertainment production banner, reported Deadline. The studio acquired My Daughter's Quinceañera, an original pitch from Lauren Lungerich, creator of the MTV series Awkward.
The movie will tell the story of a stressed-out, single father’s experience planning an extravagant Quince celebration for his daughter.
Lungerich will be writing, directing and co-producing the feature film. Longoria also will be co-producing with partner Ben Spector.
“While audiences have identified with Eva through her iconic television roles, she is also an extremely savvy producer with a keen eye for projects that appeal to a broad range of diverse audiences,” said Universal president of production, Peter Cramer. “We are fortunate that Eva has a found a home with Universal, sharing with us her creative instincts and passion for storytelling.”
Longoria is not only excited about the movie but also about re-experiencing her Quinceañera days. “Lauren’s pitch was so brilliant and funny, and to bring this experience to life is like reliving my 15th birthday,” said the actress.
