Actress Eva Longoria is set to produce and direct the Spanish remake of the hit French series "Call My Agent!"

The adaptation of the International Emmy-winning series will be co-produced by Mediawan and Elefantec Global apart from Longoria's banner UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, reported Variety.

After the show's successful remakes in places like Canada, Italy, and the UK, Longoria's version will mark the first adaptation targeting Latin America and the U.S.

The actress will direct the first two episodes of the series.

Longoria said that like so many people in the world, she has been a "huge fan of the original series since it first premiered."

According to Hola!, the series was a French production and ran for four seasons. It was a huge success and was acquired by Netflix. The show, which is a satire about the hectic life of celebrity agents, became one of its most successful international titles. The comedy-drama premiered in 2015 in France.

Pepe Baston, CEO of Elefantec Global, shared that the company was excited to bring the series to the "Spanish-speaking American market."

He added that it is made with "Latin flavor for a global audience," and they are sure "this iteration will find success and viewers worldwide."

Longoria is also in news for her feature directorial debut, "Flamin' Hot," which had its world premiere at SXSW.

Now it will stream on both Disney+ and Hulu on June 9, and it's the first time that a new movie has been made available on both of the Disney-owned OTT services stateside, as per DEADLINE.

The movie, based on the true story of Richard Montañez (Jesse Garcia), will stream on Disney+ overseas.

It is about the Frito-Lay janitor who disrupted the food industry. He did so by using his Mexican-American heritage to turn Flamin' Hot Cheetos from a snack into a global pop culture phenomenon.

Longoria is excited for the world to "see 'Flamin' Hot' on these two streaming platforms making this universal, inspirational story accessible to an even wider audience."

She said that now everyone can celebrate the heart, joy and power of this movie which also happens to "uplift Latinos both in front of and behind the camera."
