After getting the shaft from ABC, Marc Cherry’s Devious Maids has officially been picked up and by Lifetime! And that means just as Susan Lucci is about to make an appearance at the Daytime Emmys tomorrow night, she will definitely have more to talk about on the red carpet, as the series in which she co-stars finally gets a green light with a 13-episode order from Lifetime!
“We are glad the show has found a home,” Ana Ortiz, one of the series stars told The Huffington Post exclusively via email this afternoon. “It is going to be such a thrill to work alongside these Devious Divas,” she added.
Ortiz says she’s not the only one who’s excited about the Lifetime pick-up–Marc Cherry is, too. “Marc seems excited about the partnership with Lifetime. I think he has a lot of wickedness up his creative sleeve…so fun!” she wrote.
Based on a Mexican telenovela format, Devious Maids follows four maids who work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills, but have ambitions and dreams of their own. The show stars Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”), Dania Ramirez (“Heroes”), Roselyn Sanchez (“Without A Trace”) and Judy Reyes (“Scrubs”), and is co-executive produced by Mark Cherry and Eva Longoria.
Look for Devious Maids to launch in 2013!
