ABC has just bought a project from its former “Desperate Housewives” star-turned-producer Eva Longoria.
In a partnership between Longoria’s UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, Berman/Braun and Universal Television, an American adaptation of the popular Venezuelan telenovela “Pura Sangre” called “Trust” has landed at ABC, a network representative told TheWrap.
Written by Katie Lovejoy (NBC’s “Dracula”), the series revolves around David Montenegro, who’s described as a humble Miami attorney. David finds himself in a love triangle between his ex-girlfriend, Rosella Lagos, and her fiance. In the process, he gets drawn into the drama of Rosa’s dysfunctional family.
RCN Television’s “Pura Sangre” aired 126 episodes during 2007-2008. It has also been adapted in Spanish-speaking countries.
UnbeliEVAble has a first look deal with Universal TV. Longoria also serves as an executive producer on the annual ALMA Awards broadcast, Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” and the short-lived NBC dating show, “Ready for Love.”
