Eva Longoria has found no shortage of work following the season finale of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" last year.
The 37-year-old actress recently landed the voice lead role in "Mother Up," a cartoon series about a high-powered executive who becomes a stay-at-home mom.
"She's a crazy, irresponsible mother, that all mothers fear they are," explained the former "Desperate Housewives" star to The Hollywood Reporter about her latest character.
"She barely keeps her kids alive with bizarre, improvised solutions to the endless challenges of parenting," the actress added.
Longoria will serve as co-executive producer of "Mother Up!" from which Canadian broadcaster City and Hulu ordered 13 episodes. The series is set to air in the fall, according to THR.
Furthermore, Longoria was named Tuesday among top Latino entertainers who will perform at the "Latino Inaugural 2013: In Performance at the Kennedy Center."
Native to Corpus Christi, Texas, Longoria is a co-chair of Obama's inauguration festivities and is hosting the event, which is one of many that are to occur before President Barack Obama's inauguration.
"Latinos played a critical role in this year's elections and helped tip the scales in President Obama's victory," Longoria said in a statement.
"But we are not waiting another four years to make an impact on our country's future," she added. "What better way to establish our presence at these inaugural celebrations than by showcasing the beauty and diversity of our culture at the nation's premier performing arts center."
George Lopez, Mario Lopez, Chita Rivera and Rita Moreno will join the actress at the tribute performance on Sunday, Jan. 20, according to the Associated Press.
Additional performers will include Jose Feliciano, Melanie Griffith, New York City's Ballet Hispanico, Coro de Ninos de San Juan (the San Juan Children's Choir,) among others.
Tickets to the event went on sale Tuesday at the Kennedy Center box office. Admission starts at $300 for the live performance in the center's Opera House, while a simulcast in the center's Eisenhower Theater are $150.
While is in uncertain if Obama will attend, a party will follow the show on the eve of the President's public swearing in.
