HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA — Actress, Producer, Director, Activist, Philanthropist and Designer Eva Longoria has signed with WME.

The multi-hyphenate joins the agency from CAA, where she will be repped in numerous categories.

Longoria first rose to fame after playing Isabella Brana on The Young and the Restless and Gabrielle Solis on Desperate Housewives.

She is next poised to tackle feature film directing, with the Searchlight biopic Flamin’ Hot and the workplace comedy 24/7 for Universal Pictures. Other past directing credits include the ESPN‘s 30 for 30 documentary Versus, as well as episodes of Black-ish, The Mick, Telenovela and Devious Maids. Longoria will next be seen on screen in Eugene Ashe’s Sylvie’s Love, opposite Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha, a Sundance player acquired by Amazon Studios.

Longoria founded her production company Unbelievable Entertainment in 2005 and recently renewed her first-look deal with Twentieth Television for an additional three years. The company seeks projects that accurately represent the stories of Latinx and other underrepresented communities.

Unbelievable is developing Before I Forget at Amazon as a potential starring vehicle for Longoria, with director Marc Webb. With producing partner Ben Spector, the company recently sold to ABC Chicano, a multi-generational drama centering on a Mexican-American family that immigrates to Los Angeles in pursuit of the American dream. There’s also A Class Apart, a true story of Mexican Americans fighting for civil rights, at HBO.

Longoria has served as a global brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris for over 15 years. She is a New York Times bestselling author for her cookbook “Eva’s Kitchen.”

The star continues to be represented by Brillstein Entertainment Partners, Sunshine Sachs and Jackoway Austen Tyerman Wertheimer Mandelbaum Morris Bernstein Trattner & Klein.
