This sounds like a must-see for all La Lucci fans!   The executive producers of the fall series pilot, Devious Maids, Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria (both of Desperate Housewives fame), previewed for TV Guide, Susan Lucci’s hilarious new role in the nighttime soap, that of Genevieve Delacourt.

So what is a Genevieve Delacourt?  She is a flamboyant, wealthy woman with a gorgeous son, a flirty teenage maid named Valentina and a serious personality disorder.  “When we first see her, she’s attempting suicide again. Of course, we play it for comedic effect. Susan spent her first scenes under a bed clutching a bottle of pills. And she threw herself into this with a total sense of humor about it,’ revealed Marc Cherry.  Marc though is keeping the circumstances that lead Genevieve to attempt suicide under wraps for now.

Eva Longoria offered this about the soap icon, ” She’s hysterical — so amazing.  I think Susan missed her true calling. She’s a strong comedic actress and the loveliest person you’d ever meet.  Not at all the soap opera diva.”

We will know “officially” next week if Devious Maids is going into full production for its first season when ABC reveals its fall lineup at the Upfronts in New York.   Word in the entertainment trades is;  that the series is greenlighted!  So, will you tune-in to see Susan in her new role?  Let us know!

    I’ll most likely tune in but I do hope she is given some dramatic material as well. I like shows that know how to give a good mix of comedy and drama.

    I am sure I sound like a broken record but the entertainment world still want Susan Lucci to be Erica Kane. But I think she will be a blast in the role and I agree I hope they give her some drama too. Better yet let her play this role and a mousy maid too or something. That would be fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    But sadly ABC isn’t picking Devious Maids up? Does anyone know why? Without GCB or DH this seems perfect. THey have eye candy, some good storylines, some great comedy, some drama, with the exception of Susan Lucci the show seems targetted at the right demographics for marketing and even then she is an enigma – she sort of transcends the ages – literally and figuratively.

    Don’t worry I love ABC soaps – Genevieve Delacourt is not Erica Kane. She is now left trying to seduce the Armenian pool boy and men walk by her like she is sexless asa mailbox – that’s what I read :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!
