Miss seeing Devious Maids Executive Producer Eva Longoria on your screens? Well, here are good news for you!
NBC kicked off its time at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour with news that Desperate Housewives alum Eva Longoria would star in a 13-episode miniseries called Telenovela.
NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said Telenovela would offer a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into the making of a telenovela. Longoria will produce and star as a beautiful diva and star of a popular telenovela.
Telenovela is a half-hour single-camera comedy series hailing from Cougar Town co-executive producer Chrissy Pietrosh and Jessica Goldstein and Universal Television, where Longoria’s Unbelievable Entertainment is under an overall deal. The comedy was one of two projects that Longoria was eyeing to star, with an untitled comedy also in contention at ABC. Longoria was said to have a series commitment attached to the NBC project.
