Eve Torres Gracie landed a recurring role in the upcoming action drama series Matador for Robert Rodriguez’s new network El Rey. Matador chronicles the unlikely rise of Tony “Matador” Bravo, a popular soccer star, who comes to be known as much for his playboy antics off the field as his dynamic moves on it. But what his fans and family don’t realize is that it’s all a cover–in truth, he is a skilled covert operative executing missions for a little known branch of the CIA.

Eve will play the role of Reyna Flores, a sharp, ambitious, and fit sports reporter who was a college soccer player herself; she’s as passionate about the game as she is her career trajectory.

“Matador” was created by Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, and produced in association with K/O Paper Products, the coveted writing/producing team behind Sleepy Hollow, Fringe, Star Trek and the Transformer franchise. Robert Rodriguez also directed the first episode. Filming has already begun in Los Angeles, and it is set to premier July 2014.
