Eva Longoria, Kathryn Morris Developing Texas Border Town Soap for ABC

Eva LongoriaApparently starring on one of ABC's most popular series -- not to mention three movies that are currently in post-production -- still leaves Eva Longoria enough free time to develop new TV shows.

Marriage troubles can't hold the 'Desperate Housewives' actress back -- Longoria and her production company, Unbelievable Entertainment, are working on three new shows. According to Deadline Hollywood, the Texas border town soap 'Sendera' (with 'Cold Case' actress Kathryn Morris) and 'Parenting by Committee' are for ABC, while 'Aztec' is being described as a potential miniseries for Starz.

'Sendera,' a soapy drama about a Texas border town, follows two rich families "locked in a struggle for power, land, sex and legacy," Deadline reports. The Shakespearean-sounding drama will presumably also feature a pair of star-crossed lovers from the dueling clans, one based in Mexico and one in Texas, but that's just speculation on our part.

In 'Parenting by Committee,' a single woman decides to raise her baby boy with her three also-single best friends -- the titular committee -- instead of a man. The show is from writers Alyssa Embree and Jessica Koosed.

The Starz project is an eight-part miniseries called 'Aztec,' based on the Gary Jennings book. The historical series will take place "in Tenochtitlan during its empirical height just prior to its fall to Spanish invaders," according to Deadline, and will be written by 'The Odyssey' scribe Nicholas Meyer.

I have a bad feeling Longoria is going to turn this into some Pro-Immigration/Amnesty platform. If she loves Mexico so much, why doesn't she move there? P.S. I can see why Tony Parker left her--just search for pictures of her without her makeup. UGLY Dude looks like a lady.

Aztec was a very good book and should make for an interesting mini-series if done right.

The world could probably do without another Texas soap opera.
