The former Desperate Housewives star has made a name for herself behind the camera, and she's eyeing another credit with an as-yet-untitled sitcom for America's ABC network.

According to, the project will centre on an ambitious Latino chef who runs a cafe with his unpredictable white father-in-law.

Longoria, who has been the executive producer of soap opera Devious Maids since 2013, is also preparing to launch sitcom Hot & Bothered, another series which she produces under her company UnbeliEVAble. It is slated to debut early next year (16).
