Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives) has nabbed the lead on new Fox comedy pilot Type-A.
Type-A is a workplace comedy about a group of consultants hand-picked to do the dirty work most professionals can’t handle: layoffs, downsizing, generally delivering horrible news. To everyone else, they’re the enemy – to one another, they’re family. Longoria will play Axler, the ambitious, brutally honest consultant who is at war with her inner “nice girl.”
Jason Winer and Lesley Wake-Webster will executive produce with Wake-Webster performing writing duties.
Longoria will soon be seen on Empire as part of a major storyline where she will play Charlotte Frost, the formidable director of the Nevada Gaming Commission who has the power to make or break Lucious’ (Terrence Howard) dreams of expanding Empire’s reach to Las Vegas.
