Although it hasn't been confirmed what Eva's official role will be in the comedy series, Gina has teased it may see Eva assist behind the camera.
In Gina's Snapchat video she teased Eva is directing the forthcoming series, which will be aired on October 17 on The CW.
Meanwhile, Eva — who wed José Antonio Bastón earlier this year — has likened her busy schedule to "rocket science" and has admitted she is able to cope with the work load by prioritizing and cutting back on social media browsing.
She previously said, "If I'm not moving forward, I'm moving faster forward. My schedule is usually like rocket science. I prioritize. I do conference calls while I'm driving. I do all my reading while I'm flying. I'm very efficient with my time."
