Eva Longoria Escapes In The Trailer For Land Of Women

In the first glimpse of Eva Longoria's TV comeback on AppleTV+'s Land of Women, the actress finds herself on the run and, inexplicably, on the hook for millions.

"I go by Gala Scott. Tuesday, June 4 saw the release of the official trailer for the miniseries, in which Longoria's character Gala Scott declares, "Yesterday my life was perfect." "It seemed to be, at least."

Viewers get a peek into Gala's opulent existence in New York City, but when two men endanger her life and the lives of those she loves, the protagonist's whole world is upended.

When Gala finds out that her husband, Fred, owes these loan sharks $15 million, they threaten to "visit your daughter and your mother" unless they get their money in less than 24 hours.

But Fred is unable to repay the money, so he orders Gala to go from New York. In the teaser, Gala pretends to be running from the bad guys while taking her mother Julia (Carmen Maura) and daughter Kate (Victoria Bazua) on a "girls' trip" to Spain.

When they get to their location, Gala shouts at Kate, "This is a girls' trip, no phones." She hits a tractor and leaves the women stranded as she looks away from the road.

The ladies are in over their heads, despite the fact that the tractor driver Amat (Santiago Cabera), who also owns a vineyard, allows them to remain on the farm and even seems to develop feelings for Gala.

Gala exclaims, "We're family, and families stick together," as glimpses of their crazy Spanish trip flicker across the screen.

The loan sharks arrive in Europe at the conclusion of the trailer, where they discover all three women. "Can we crack open a bottle of wine?" Says Gala's mother in Spanish. "Because I want to avoid dying sober!"
