Eva Longoria to Topline Fox Comedy Pilot ‘Type-A’
Eva Longoria is quite busy these days. Just weeks ago, it was announced that the Desperate Housewives and Telenovela alum would have a guest role on Fox hit Empire. And now, The Hollywood Reporter reports, Longoria will be starring in a comedy pilot that’s all her own: Type-A.
The pilot, which is based on the Aaron James book Assholes: A Theory, follows a group of consultants who are tasked with spearheading company downsizing efforts, layoffs, and other so-called dirty work around the office. Type-A will see Longoria as the fiercely ambitious Axler, a consultant whose brutal honesty makes her second guess herself.
Penning the script for Type-A is Lesley Wake Webster who’ll also be executive producing alongside Jason Winer.
Longoria was most recently seen on the short-lived comedy Telenovela which she also executive produced. She also spent four seasons on Devious Maids as executive producer.
