HomeTVAll My ChildrenLifetime Gives Devious Maids 13-Episode Order! Jamey Giddens June 22, 2012 7 Comments Marc Cherry's Devious Maids is back in play! The Desperate Housewives auteur's adaptation of the telenovela Ellas son la Alegría del Hogar has been picked up with a 13-episode order. Ex-Housewife Eva Longoria is one of the executive producers. This should give series regular Susan Lucci plenty to talk about tomorrow on the Daytime Emmy red carpet. The All My Children legend stars as Genevieve Delacort, a loopy, aging socialite, prone to suicide attempts, and taking much younger lovers. The cast also boasts Ugly Betty alum Ana Ortiz as Marisol, one of the titular devious maids and General Hospital's Brianna Brown, who appears as one of the maids' well-heeled employers, Taylor Slate. I hear La Lucci was testing through the roof for Lifetime, courtesy of her guest stints on Army Wives. One can only wonder if that helped in making this deal happen. Glad to see someone finally recognizing her merit!

I was hoping the Eva Longoria being attached to this project (her name is really one the line with this) means getting away from stereotypes. But I guess the fact that there are maids of Latino origin might rub people the wrong way as The Help stirred controversy. Hopefully these characters will be whole, three dimensional individuals with fully fleshed out stories, motivations and aspirations. Since I don’t subscribe to cable, however, I most likely won’t be able to judge for myself. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
