Eva Longoria Redeveloping Mother-Daughter Legal Drama With NBC
Eva Longoria's UnbeliEVAable has set up its fourth drama this development season.
NBC has picked up a script for Vega v. Vega, a female-driven legal drama from Longoria's UnbeliEVAable Entertainment banner, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The drama -- which was set up at The CW in 2011 but did not move forward -- revolves around a brilliant, young, successful lawyer who suddenly finds herself forced to go into a practice with her mother, a pioneering female attorney with whom she has a love/hate relationship.
Laurie Silverstein will pen the script and co-executive produce the Warner Bros. Television project alongside Longoria, former Desperate Housewives EP George W. Perkins, Sunta Izzicupo (Mail Order Bride) and UnbeliEVAable's Ben Spector. Elizabeth Bradley will produce.
The 2011 incarnation of the script was penned by Yahlin Chang (Pan Am) and exec produced by Perkins and Izzicupo, Bradley as a co-EP.
Longoria's UnbeliEVAble is based at Universal Television, but the drama -- like the untitled Albert Kim drama set up at The CW -- was grandfathered in. For Longoria, this marks her fourth sale this development season. In addition to Kim's (Nikita) female-driven conspiracy drama, she has Trust, an hourlong soap based on Colombian telenovela Pura Sangre set up at ABC; and an untitled comedy inspired by sex therapist Laura Berman also with NBC.
UnbeliEVAble is repped by CAA
