AppleTV+ Orders 6 Episodes of Dark Comedy 'Land of Women' Starring Eva Longoria

AppleTV+ has today given a series order to the original dramedy series Land of Women starring Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives). The first season will produce six episodes.

Inspired by the novel by Sandra Barneda, the dark comedy will follow Gala (Longoria), a New York empty nester forced to flee her home after her husband implicates the family in financial improprieties. Joining her on the journey are her aging mother Julia and her college-age daughter. The three women escape the criminals her now-vanished husband is indebted to by moving to the same charming wine town in Northern Spain that Gala's mother fled 50 years ago, vowing never to return. Starting over with new identities proves complicated while living in a small town where secrets tend to unravel quite easily.

Carmen Maura will also star.

Ramón Campos and Gema R. Neira developed the series. They will executive produce with Longoria, Teresa Fernández-Valdés, Ben Spector and director Carlos Sedes. Bambu Studios and UnbeliEVAble Entertainment will produce.
