Eva Longoria to produce 'Devious Maids' for ABC

Eva Longoria won’t get much downtime after her show “Desperate Housewives” goes off the air this May.

Deadline reports that after eight seasons of starring in the hit ABC show, Longoria will now go behind the camera for the network, joining the soap-opera-style pilot “Devious Maids” as an executive producer.

Constructed around a novella-esque format, the show revolves around four maids who dream of a better life - one that more closely mirrors the lives of the celebrities they work for in Beverly Hills.

The maids will be played by Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez and Judy Reyes.

“Devious Maids” might not be the only TV show Longoria's working on: The New York Post says the actress is also developing a primetime NBC show centered around dating.

The single star - who split from pro basketball player Tony Parker in 2010 - is said to have pitched the concept herself.

The show is reportedly designed to help “real women” get back on their feet after a nasty breakup, and is expected to go into production next month, according to Us Weekly.

    I hope she's a better producer than she is an actress. Pretty woman and smart too from what I can tell in regards to business and her restaurants but a very eh actress.

    I like Rabbi Weinstien. He is a pretty nice fella. Do you go to his synagogue too?

    She looks like sinful prostute to me, practically unclothed with her hair and face exposed. The article seems to imply she divorceed her husband. This kind of thing happens often in the West? In my village she would be whipped for expresing such sentiments—we no longer stone them though.

      Though I shouldn't feed trolls, I just wanted to say...

      ... I am pretty sure you are NOT from the East. You are probably sitting behind a computer in Kentucky bored out of your mind because the only thing you can do is feed the cows and tend to the chickens. You looked up that name using Google Translate or some website and decided to be clever about it. Acting as if you were some high and mighty figurehead for Islam. My guess is that you're also CORA LDS and all those LDS trolls out there. Next thing you know, we'll see you as Rabbi Weinstein or something.

      His name is Nasir Rashad Abdul, he is the 7th son born under the winter sky in the desert land. His forefathers were royalty, but his mother was a simple camel herder.
