Eva Longoria is proving to be the hardest working Latina television producer…
The 40-year-old Mexican American actress/producer’s production company UnbeliEVAble Entertainment has set a half-hour project at ABC with veteran comedy writer Bobby Bowman.
The untitled interracial family comedy centers on an ambitious and meticulous Latino chef who runs a cafe with his unpredictable white father-in-law.
Bowman will executive produce the project alongside UnbeliEVAble’s Longoria and Ben Spector.
Universal Television Studios, where the company is based, is the studio.
This marks the return to ABC for the former Desperate Housewives star Longoria and Family Tools creator Bowman.
Last year, ABC and ABC Studios developed a half-hour comedy as a starring vehicle for Longoria before she committed to NBC’s Hot & Bothered, formerly called Telenovela. That series, which UnbeliEVAble produces with Universal Television, debuts in midseason.
In addition to Hot & Bothered, UnbeliEVAble has Bonita & Mechelle in development at NBC, as well as projects at HBO Films and NBC International.
