Eva Longoria’s new film is getting an unprecedented double premiere on two streaming platforms this summer.
Searchlight Pictures today announced that award-winning actor/director/producer Eva Longoria’s feature directorial debut FLAMIN’ HOT will have an unprecedented release debuting on both Hulu and Disney+ on June 9, 2023.
The film made its raucous world premiere at SXSW with sold out screenings, evoking emotional standing ovations from audiences of all ages. Produced by DeVon Franklin (Miracles From Heaven, Breakthrough), FLAMIN’ HOT is the first scripted feature to stream simultaneously on both platforms in the US. It will also be available on Disney+ internationally.
“I’m so excited for the world to see FLAMIN’ HOT on these two streaming platforms making this universal, inspirational story accessible to an even wider audience,” said director Eva Longoria. “Now everyone can celebrate the joy, power and heart of this film that also happens to uplift Latinos both in front of and behind the camera.”
FLAMIN’ HOT is the inspiring true story of Richard Montañez (Jesse Garcia) who as a Frito-Lay janitor disrupted the food industry by channeling his Mexican-American heritage to turn Flamin’ Hot Cheetos from a snack into an iconic global pop culture phenomenon.
