Vega will be written and executive produced by Yahlin Chang (Pan Am, Dirty Sexy Money). Longoria and Housewives' George W. Perkins and Sunta Izzicupo are on board as executive producers, with Elizabeth Bradley attached as a co-executive producer.
Longoria is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment, Bloom Hergott.
