After dropping a critically acclaimed new album last year and getting engaged to her boo Eve is now ready to make a splash on the small screen once again, but instead of just hopping on any busted BET sitcom or getting pimped out by Mona Scott Young on some dusty VH1 reality show, Eve decided to link up with Aaron Kaplan and the big dawgs over at the ABC Network where the real checks are cut.

ABC has closed a deal for a multi-camera comedy project to star actress-rapper Eve, from Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and ABC Studios. The project, which is eyed for the 2014-15 development season, is looking for a writer. I hear Kaplan approached Eve (full name Eve Jeffers) with the idea for a multi-camera interracial romantic comedy.
The two pitched it to ABC, which bought the project with penalty. Eve and Kaplan (ABC’s The Neighbors) executive produce. ICM Partners-repped Eve previously toplined her eponymous sitcom on UPN and starred in the Barbershop movie franchise. (DL)
