Eva Longoria Sells Sitcom to NBC and Drama to Lifetime

 

Eva Longoria Sells Sitcom to NBC and Drama to Lifetime

 

Proving that she's definitely not just a Desperate Housewife anymore, Deadline reports that actress Eva Longoria has recently sold not one - but two - TV projects through her production company, UnbeliEVAble Entertainment. (Cute name, right?)   

First up: a half-hour comedy set up at NBC starring rising comedian Erik Rivera. The project, which stems from a deal made earlier this year between UnbeliEVAable and Rivera to develop a comedy vehicle for him, will be based on Rivera's life and his standup. Comedy veteran Peter Murrieta will write the script, as well as executive produce, alongside Scott Ellis, who is set to direct, as well as Longoria and her producing partner Ben Spector. 

The project is being likened to 'The George Lopez Show,' which had a household name (Sandra Bullock) producing an up-and-coming Latino comedian and partnering him up with an established comedy showrunner. 

Longoria's other slated project is a little darker. OK, a lot darker. The Lifetime drama, titled 'Blackout,' is a twisted small town soap opera from 'Revenge' writer, Elle Triedman. Similar to 'Revenge' in that mysterious 'things aren't what they seem' way, the story focuses on a woman who returns to the small blue collar town run by her estranged siblings, whom she tries to make amends with while her past and the murder of a teenage girl forces her to face her demons. I'm intrigued already.

Wow, no text formatting - lame. Let me try that again. _________________"...I'm intrigued already." ---- Well then you should probably look up "The Town" a UK show that aired last year as this sounds pretty much like a remake based on that synopsis. ______________________ "Proving that she's definitely not just a Desperate Housewife anymore" ---- Yes, she can hire other people to do stuff for her and regurgitate other people's ideas, what an awesome talent!!
