The CW is getting dramatic with Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria.

The younger-skewing network is developing Vega v. Vega, a one-hour legal drama with Longoria situated on the other side of the camera. The project, from Warner Bros. Television, centers on 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.
