Actress Eva Longoria is throwing herself into work following her marriage breakdown – her production company has signed deals for three new TV series.
The Desperate Housewives star filed for divorce from basketball player Tony Parker earlier this month, citing irreconcilable differences amid reports he had been unfaithful.

But Longoria is refusing to let her personal life interfere with her career – she will co-executive produce two new shows for the ABC network, in addition to a mini-series for the Starz channel via her UnbeliEVAble company.

The ABC projects include the drama Sendera, about a wealthy family from Mexico and another from Texas, which are locked in a power struggle. The show will be produced with Cold Case actress Kathryn Morris’ Hotplate Productions, reports industry publication Daily Variety.

Meanwhile, Longoria will also produce the Starz historical series Aztecs, about the love affair between Spanish conqueror Hernan Cortes and his interpreter, Malinalli.
