'Telenovela': Eva Longoria Talks About Her Return to TV in NBC's Flashy Comedy - Details

Eva Longoria returns to series TV in Telenovela, a fun, irreverent look at the cast and crew of a popular Spanish telenovela.

The actress was keen to avoid the drama behind the scenes on her last TV series, Desperate Housewives, and went out of her way to make sure she would not be working with troublemakers.

“I looked for the cream of the crop, make no mistake about that.” she told TV Guide magazine, “but I also had a ‘no a**hole’ policy.

“At this point in my life and career, I only want to be surrounded by nice human beings.”

As a result, the newly-engaged Latina will be joined on the show by the likes of Zachary Levi, Alex Maneses, Izzy Diaz and Amaury Nolasco.

The sitcom debuts in America on 4 January (16).
