The `Desperate Housewives` actress - who is currently single, after splitting from Eduardo Cruz earlier this month - has been working on the new format, provisionally titled `All About Love`, which will see single people set up by top matchmakers.
Among those set to be included in the show are Amber Kelleher - who heads elite dating company Kelleher International - and Steve Ward, who appeared on VH1 show `Tough Love`, which saw him and mother JoAnn send women struggling to find a partner through a boot camp.
A source told the New York Post newspaper the show - developed by Eva`s UnbeliEVAble Entertainment company - goes into production next month, with network NBC ordering a full series.
Eva, 37, has had a turbulent few years in her private life, after she split from basketball player Tony Parker after three-and-a-half years of marriage in November 2010, but she recently insisted she has not given up on love.
She said: "You know what, every day I strive to be happy. So yeah, I think every day is another victory.
"The truth is, I should be angry, resentful and disillusioned about relationships. But I`m not."
