Eva Longoria Empire

Eva Longoria Eyed to Star in BBC Miniseries Decline and Fall

Former Wisteria Lane resident Eva Longoria is relocating to 1920s Wales.

The onetime Desperate Housewife is in negotiations to star alongside British comedian Jack Whitehall (Bad Education) in a small-screen adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s Decline and Fall, our sister site Deadline reports.

The three-part miniseries is described as a social satire that follows Paul Pennyfeather (Whitehall), a hard-partying man sent by Oxford to serve as headmaster at a boys’ private school in Wales. There, he meets a wealthy South American woman, Margot Beste-Chetwynde (Longoria), with whom he is instantly smitten.

The comedy, which is set to air in the UK on BBC Two, has not yet been acquired by a U.S. network or streaming service. Production begins in mid-July.

Longoria’s recent TV credits include NBC’s one-and-done Telenovela and a cameo in the Season 4 premiere of Lifetime’s Devious Maids.

    I love Jack Whitehall, so hopefully it at least gets picked up by a streaming service.
