The man behind Desperate Housewives, Marc Cherry, is coming out with a juicy new show this summer on Lifetime! Devious Maids, based on the telenovela Ellas son la Alegría del Hogar, will premiere on Lifetime June 23 at 10 p.m. ET. The show tells the ”upstairs-downstairs” story of a group of maids ”as clever, witty, outrageous and downright devilish as their employers.” Housewives‘ star Eva Longoria is also one of the show’s executive producer.
Two teases of the intrigue to expect: In the pilot, a maid is found murdered at a large society event. Also, Scrubs‘ Judy Reyes is the maid for… wait for it… All My Children’s Susan Lucci, whose character’s name is… wait for it… Genevieve Delatour. Ugly Betty‘s Ana Ortiz, Without a Trace‘s Roselyn Sanchez, Livin’ Loud‘s Edy Ganem, and Heroes‘ Dania Ramirez also star.
