Eva Longoria Working Hard to Bring Latino Talent to TV

Eva Longoria is working on a new project, but this time she’s on the other side of the camera. Taking a break from the television spotlight, the Mexican-American Desperate Housewives actress is executive-producing a new legal series for The CW called Vega v. Vega, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project is a one-hour drama, which centers on a young, ambitious lawyer who is forced to go into legal practice with her mother. The daughter must deal with her love/hate relationship with her mother, a pioneering attorney. Casting has not yet been determined.

Longoria’s new venture in television already has a script order from Warner Bros. Television, The CW’s parent company. The network appeals to a younger, female-based demographic, which is the target audience for this show.

Another project in development for ABC is an adaptation of a Mexican telenovela entitled Soy Tu Dueña, which is a drama about a Texan heiress who loses her fortune.
