Former Ryan’s Hope, Melrose Place and Swingtown star, Grant Show has been cast in Desperate Housewives, Marc Cherry’s new ABC primetime soap pilot, Devious Maids!  As we already announced last week All My Children’s Susan Lucci has already joined the cast.

Today according to Deadline.com,  “Show will play Spence Davis, a successful daytime star married to a gorgeous, self-centered actress played by Mariana Klaveno.”

The premise for Devious Maids …  the show concept is that it follows four maids (Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes) with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.  So if this goes to series, will you tune-in? Or tune-out? Let us know, soapers!

    I plan on watching. I am sure that is why they hired Susan Lucci too. They want to get the AMC fans. Now they will get Melrose Place fans too. I love that Grant is playing a daytime soap actor! Marc Cherry ain’t stupid, he’s just a bad boy for being mean to my Nicollete Sheridan.

    Why are there lots of soap type shows coming to primetime and being cancelled in daytime?

    Susan Lucci like many others from daytime should be on primetime.
    Isn’t Brianna Brown going to be on this show as well?
    When does it start? Sept 2012?

    I am going to watch the show. Isn’t it more or less a re-make of ‘The Help’?

    While I abhore that the daytme soaps are being murdered, I will watch the night time ones. Why not? Many of them employ former daytime stars I love. I want to see these people working and as long as the stories are good, I’m in.
