Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry along with Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria is working on a pilot called “Devious Maids”, which seems to be loosely based on a Mexican telenovela Disorderly Maids Of The Neighborhood:
The premise: Four maids (Ugly Betty’s Ana Ortiz, Entourage’s Dania Ramirez, Chasing Papi’s Roselyn Sanchez, Scrubs’s Judy Reyes) with big dreams and a lot of ambition are working for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. (Rumor has it Susan Lucci will play one of the employers.)
Soap legend Susan Lucci may never have taken up residence on Wisteria Lane — despite the many, many rumors — but Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry still has big plans for her! EW.com reports that Susan has been given a starring role on his new ABC pilot Devious Maids, which as the title suggests, focuses on the trials and tribulations of four devious maids. Ugly Betty vet Ana Ortiz has already been cast as one of the maids, while Susan will play one of the maids’ employers.
