Jimmy Smits CBSIs Hollywood finally waking up and smelling the census report? Add to the growing list of shows centered around Latino families CBS' Los Duques. Starring Jimmy Smits, who also serves as the program's executive producer, the show focuses on the Duques, a powerful South Florida family of rum merchants. In typical telenovela fashion, the family's ailing patriarch leaves control of the company to an outsider, Smits' character Alex Vega.

Smits' production company El Sendero has two additional projects set up at FX and ABC. The FX program, The Inside, focuses on a former Special Forces operative who gives up his identity to infiltrate a drug cartel. The ABC project is an epic miniseries about immigration told through several interconnected storylines. The miniseries will be written and directed by Gregory Nava, who directed Smits in the feature film My Family/Mi Familia.
