Universal TV will be producing the comedy and it will fall under Eva’s own UnbeliEVAble Entertainment production company.

Eva Longoria as producer
Eva Longoria has taken to creating shows—rather than starring in them —in recent years, but her latest series was criticized and harshly condemned within her own cultural community over what critics are calling a demeaning and stereotypical portrayal of Hispanic women. The series name is “Devious Maids,” which Longoria developed with “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry.
Many viewers share that “Devious Maids” was “just offensive,” while others praised the series with tweets such as “loved loved, good new show” and “intrigue and funny at the same time!”
We cant wait to see what her new show will bring!
