Is Eva Longoria headed across the pond? Deadline reports the actress is in talks to join the upcoming BBC Two miniseries Decline and Fall.
Longoria’s short-lived NBC sitcom Telenovela was cancelled after one season back in May.
Based on the Evelyn Waugh novel of the same name, Decline and Fall “is a bitingly funny satire that follows the life and times of hapless Paul Pennyfeather (Jack Whitehall) who is sent down from Oxford after a wild, drunken party and finds himself qualifying for the position of schoolmaster at a boys’ private school in Wales. There he meets the delectable Margot Beste-Chetwynde (Longoria), the wealthy, powerful, and beautiful South American woman, who becomes the object of his affections.”
James Wood is developing the miniseries, with Guillem Morales slated to direct. Production begins in Wales next month.
