Los Angeles (USA), Sep 20 (EFE) .- Eva Longoria will produce a science fiction series based on “Sal & Gabi Break the Universe”, a book written by Cuban-American author Carlos Hernández.
The actress and businesswoman will take the reins of this project, which narrates the adventures of Sal Vidón, a teenager with the power to travel through time and space who aims to bring his mother back to life, the newspaper reported specialized Deadline.
Longoria will produce this series with Ben Spector (“Grand Hotel”) and the Disney Branded Television company, although at the moment it has not been acquired by any television network or “streaming” platform.
Beyond her acting jobs, Longoria has her film directorial debut on the near horizon with the movie “Flamin ‘Hot,” a film about the creator of the famous flavor of Cheetos.

Among other projects, Longoria will open next year a school for students interested in working in film and will have partners such as George Clooney and Kerry Washington for this.
In addition, the businesswoman has entered the football business with force and among her investments in this sport, Angel City FC stands out, a women’s team that will debut next year in Los Angeles and in which she is accompanied by other entertainment figures such as Natalie. Portman, America Ferrera, Becky G, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Chastain, Sophia Bush, and Uzo Aduba.
Finally, Longoria is on the board of directors of the Museum of the Academy of Hollywood, which opens its doors on September 30.
