According to Deadline Hollywood, Eva Longoria and her company UnbeliEVAble Entertainment are taking charge of “My Daughter’s Quinceañera” as producers. The movie, originally written and pitched by Lauren Iungerich, focuses on a single father who’s giving his daughter the quinceañera of her dreams. This will be Longoria’s first project with the NBC/Universal family since her sitcom “Telenovela” was canceled after just one season. But, despite the lackluster performance of the sitcom, Universal has faith that Longoria can make the movie relevant to “a broad range of diverse audiences.”
Alright now, Eva. Let’s make sure this Latino story shines.
“There’s simply no better place I could think of than Universal Pictures, whose diverse portfolio of releases is inspirational,” Longoria told Deadline Hollywood. “Lauren’s pitch was so brilliant and funny, and to bring this experience to life is like reliving my 15th birthday.”
