"Devious Maids" review by Suzanne
Premieres Sunday, June 23 at 10/9c on Lifetime

I've been looking forward to this show because it has so many actors I know from the soaps. Also, Desperate Housewives was very entertaining, and this is created by Marc Cherry, who also created DH, and by Eva Longoria, who starred in DH, of course, as Gabrielle.

Lifetime sent out two episodes, plus a cool promotional package with a bucket, sponge, feather duster, and rubber gloves. So cute!

Here are the similarities between this show and "Desperate Housewives". Both are set in Southern California, and both are mostly about women. Both are darkly funny soap operas. Both shows start with a woman's death. I think that's about the extent of it, from what I can tell so far.

The show is about a few families in Beverly Hills and their maids. A maid, Flora, is murdered in the first episode, and a young guy (a catering waiter, I think) is put in jail for her murder because he is holding the knife. His mother, Marisol, then gets a job as a maid with the neighbors and proceeds to investigate the maid's murder. Another maid, Carmen, gets a job with this famous singer in order to sell him her songs. Another maid, Zoila, and her daughter, Valentina, work for this divorced woman and her kids. Another maid, Rosie, is missing her son.  All of the maids are Latina and either have their own secrets or are keeping someone else's.

The characters are very distinct and interesting. Susan Lucci (Erica on All My Children) plays a sort of caricature of Erica as Genevieve, the divorced woman. The maid who's looking into the murder is played by Ugly Betty's Ana Ortiz. The maid who has dreams of becoming a singer/songwriter is played by Roselyn Sanchez, whom you may recognize from "Without a Trace", among other shows. She got her start on "As the World Turns". There are so many daytime and primetime soap actors on this show.  Matt Cedeno (who played Brandon on "Days of Our Lives") plays the recording artist. Paula Garces, who is now on All My Children and was also on "Guiding Light", is the maid Flora. Brett Cullen has a long resume, but I first saw him in "Falcon Crest" many years ago. Grant Show is another veteran actor who got his start on soaps. Wolé Parks from ATWT has a small role as Sam. Brianna Brown, who was so fabulous as Lisa on General Hospital, plays Taylor.

There is a lot of humor on the show, and sometimes it's a little campy. It's very entertaining, though. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, but especially fans of "Desperate Housewives" because it has the same sort of humor and mystery. It's very nice to have a show that features Latina characters, and not just as stereotypes.

MORE INFORMATION

In Devious Maids, murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills’ wealthiest and most powerful families.  Class warfare has never been as fun and dirty as it is in the tony enclave where the staff is as clever, witty, outrageous and downright devilish as their employers.  Whoever holds the dirt holds the power, and before the season is over, illicit affairs will be revealed and deep dark secrets exposed as we learn the sordid details behind a shocking murder of a beloved housemaid.

Premieres Sunday, June 23, at 10pm ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY (April 10, 2013) – Lifetime® will premiere its highly anticipated new drama Devious Maids, executive produced by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) and Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), on Sunday, June 23 at 10PM ET/PT. The ensemble all-star cast, Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty), Dania Ramírez (Entourage), Roselyn Sánchez (Without a Trace), Edy Ganem (Livin’ Loud) and Judy Reyes (Scrubs), portray five maids with ambition and dreams of their own who work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.  

In Devious Maids, murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills’ wealthiest and most powerful families. Class warfare has never been as fun and dirty as it is in the tony enclave where the staff is as clever, witty, outrageous and downright devilish as their employers. Whoever holds the dirt holds the power, and before the season is over, illicit affairs will be revealed and deep, dark secrets exposed as we learn the sordid details behind a shocking murder of a beloved housemaid.

The series centers on a close-knit group of maids bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and the melodramatic “upstairs-downstairs” universe that engulfs their employers. Rosie (Ramírez), a widow who left her son back in Mexico when her husband died, works as the maid and nanny for a pair of self-absorbed and successful actors, Peri and Spence Westmore (Mariana Klaveno, True Blood, and Grant Show, Swing Town). Aspiring singer Carmen (Sánchez) hopes that her pop-star employer Alejandro (Matt Cedeño, Days of Our Lives) can help jump-start her career, but Odessa (Melinda Page Hamilton, Mad Men), his very loyal housekeeper and her boss, will stop at nothing to stand in her way. Zoila (Reyes) is the senior maid for Genevieve Delatour (Susan Lucci, All My Children), a codependent, emotionally unstable wealthy woman. She works alongside her teen daughter Valentina (Ganem), who has a crush on Genevieve’s handsome son, Remi (Drew Van Acker, Pretty Little Liars).

In the series premiere, the women turn to one another for support when their friend and fellow maid Flora (Paula Garcés, CSI: Miami) is brutally murdered at the home of her employers, Evelyn and Adrian Powell (Rebecca Wisocky, American Horror Story, and Tom Irwin, Grey’s Anatomy), at one of the largest society events of the year. Meanwhile, newcomer Marisol (Ortiz) is hired to clean the home of Taylor and Michael Stappord (Brianna Brown, Homeland, and Brett Cullen, Damages), a newlywed couple with a complicated love history. But Marisol has ulterior motives, and when someone she loves becomes wrapped up in Flora’s murder, she goes undercover to learn the truth.

Inspired by the hit telenovela, Ellas son… la alegría del hogar, Devious Maids is produced by ABC Studios. The series was created by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) and is executive produced by Cherry, Sabrina Wind (Desperate Housewives), Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), Paul McGuigan (Scandal), Larry Shuman (Kissing Miranda), David Lonner, John Mass and Televisa USA’s Paul Presburger and Michael Garcia.
