Lifetime Rescues Marc Cherry’s Devious Maids

-

According to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, the Lifetime channel has officially picked up Marc Cherry’s  new TV series Devious Maids, which ABC decided not to pick up to go to series last month, for a 13-episode first season. Here’s an excerpt from the article, which gives a statement from the president, Nancy Dubuc, and EVP of the Lifetime channel, Rob Sharenow, regarding the network’s decision to pick up the show, and some details on the show for anyone might not know very much about it or they simply need a refresher on the show:
-

“This show and Marc Cherry’s unique story telling voice perfectly articulate Lifetime’s strategy of attracting top-tier creatives with their most original and exciting projects,” Lifetime prez Nancy Dubuc and EVP Rob Sharenow said in a joint statement.

-
Loosely based on the Mexican telenovela The Disorderly Maids Of The Neighborhood, Cherry’s Maids follows four ambitious housekeepers (played by Ugly Betty‘s Ana Ortiz, Scrubs‘ Judy Reyes, Heroes‘ Dania Ramirez and Without a Trace‘s Roselyn Sanchez) who work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.
-

Soap icon Susan Lucci was on board to play one maid’s employer, while onetime Melrose Place resident Grant Show and True Blood alum Mariana Klaveno would lord over another, as a successful soap opera hunk and his self-centered actress-wife.

-

Maids is set to make its Lifetime debut in 2013.

My thoughts: Personally, I think the premise of the show sounds kind of stupid, but since the show was created by Marc Cherry an Susan Lucci and Grant Show are two of the stars of the show, I’m going to at least check it out.
