Eva Longoria is returning to her Lone Star roots, headlining Disney's fish-out-of-water romantic comedy "Deep in the Heart of Texas"
Don't know what the importance of "Texas" for such actress as Eva Longoria. Apparently she keeps the project deep in the heart and willingly gives hand at performing.
Based on a pitch by Pam Buchignati and Lynnette Ramirez, the flick tentatively titled "Deep in the Heart of Texas", tells the story of a spoiled Beverly Hills diva who is relocated to San Antonio to run the new Latin division of an ad agency. Being completely out of touch with her Mexican roots and speaking not a word of Spanish, she has to win over the gringo urban cowboy who is her new boss, speaks fluent Spanish and is more in touch with her heritage than she is.
Longoria is slated to play the main character. Stay tuned for more details on the comedy romance genre.
