Desperate Housewives may be coming to a close this season, but that doesn’t mean Eva Longoria’s relationship with the show’s creator Marc Cherry and ABC will end.
The 36-year-old Mexican-American actress, who will be stumping for President Barack Obama this election year, will serve as an executive producer on ABC/ABC Studios’ Devious Maids pilot, which like Desperate Housewives is a soap with four female leads.
Written by Cherry and based on a Mexican telenovela, Devious Maids follows four maids (Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes) with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.
Longoria will executive produce alongside Cherry, Sabrina Wind, Paul Presburger, David Lonner, Larry Shuman, John Mass and Michael Garcia.
Along with dedicating time to her acting career, Longoria has been quite active behind the camera as a producer; setting several series projects over the past few years though her company Unbelievable Entertainment.
Devious Minds marks the first pilot she is executive producing.
