Actress, ladies steakhouse entrepreneur, and political voice Eva Longoria landed a new show at ABC, a political family drama set in her home state of Texas about two up and coming Latino politicians who are also brothers. It's called Pair of Aces. BECAUSE TEXAS HOLD'EM AND STUFF.


The show, produced by Longoria's UnbeliEVAble Entertainment and Conde Nast Entertainment was created and written by Meredith Lavender and Marcie Ulin, writers and producers for Nashville. So you know there's going to be duh-rammaaa. Via Deadline:

[Pair of Aces] revolves around brothers Chris and Alex Reyes, Latino golden boys who are both best friends and rivals. They are rising stars in Texas politics whose destiny is engineered by their manipulative mother Maria. She is determined to turn the Reyes family into the most powerful dynasty modern politics has ever seen. The drama explores the American dream and the lies, blackmail and manipulation it takes to rise to the top of power in Texas — and perhaps someday D.C.


I am not going to lie. I am excited to see who they cast as the Rick Perry-esque governor or other powerful politician (because you know they're going to include him, and you KNOW he's going to be a big rig tool-boner).

Wasn't there a Latino duo of police officer cousins or brothers that pulled people over and beat the shit out of them? And then got elected into various political positions? I read a lot of books, so I may be thinking of a fictional story, but I swear I read something about it on Jez or Gawker.
