US star Eva Longoria has lent her voice to animated television series "Mother Up!" with a character struggling with the challenges of motherhood.

Longoria is also an executive producer of the 13-episode series, which debuted Wednesday on online video websites Hulu and Hulu Plus.

Longoria's character Rudi Wilson is a former New York City music executive who finds herself hopelessly ill-equipped to handle her two children as she resettles in suburbia without her husband or nanny.

"She may not be suitable for children. Eva Longoria is the new mom in town, and she has no idea what she's doing," a Hulu advertisement warned.

Rudi's awkward approach to rearing her five-year-old girl Apple and nine-year-old son Dick is also subjected to the sly criticisms of competitive moms as she tries to make new friends and date.

"I'm not a mom. But my character represents a lot of those fears that I would fear about being a bad mom. Rudi's trying," Longoria said in a Hulu video.

Co-creator Katie Torpey said "we’re exposing the truth about what’s happening and what’s really going on for moms."

Longoria, the former star of the hit TV show "Desperate Housewives," has since produced television shows "Devious Maids" and "Ready for Love."

A philanthropist, she was also an executive producer of "The Harvest" (2010), a documentary about the estimated 500,000 child migrant farm workers in the United States.
