Is Eva Longoria headed across the pond? Deadline reports the actress is in talks to join the upcoming BBC Two mini-series 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 mini-series, with Guillem Morales slated to direct. Production begins in Wales next month.
