Devious Maids: New Lifetime Series

*This is a sponsored post for Lifetime. 

Adding a new show to my Sunday night TV line up.  Lifetime has a new show called Devious Maids, with a cast full of Latina actors.  I was excited to hear about this show, not only because of all the Latina actresses who are the main characters, but also because of Susan Lucci.  At first when you hear the name and the premise of the show its seems like your typical stereotype of a Latina, being a maid.  I was weary in the beginning due to this fact, but always want to give a show a chance before dismissing it.  Yes the main characters are all maids, but what is so special about the show is the main characters are maids. OK let me explain, when have you seen a show where the maid is the main character...Umm probably never.  Usually the maid is a bit role or supporting character, not in Devious Maids. Although in theory the characters do submit to the stereotype of the Latina being a maid for the rich "white man".  These ladies are more than your typical maid, and the characters come off as smart and strong Latinas. 

After watching the first episode thanks to a screening copy from Lifetime, I am hooked. The show is set in Beverly Hills and first scene starts off with murder. That's all your getting from me!  

I don't know about you, but I love a good drama with suspense, murder, sex and a little comedy thrown in.  Each maid has a story and is ambitious looking for more to life than just being a maid.  Haven't we all had a job we didn't love and probably hated, but it was a means to get us to our goal.  This is what Devious Maids reminds me of, each character is looking for more to life and working as a maid to help them get there one day.  I will be watching each week to see the characters stories unfold. 


The show is from the creator of Desperate Housewives, Marc Cherry and executive producer Eva Longoria so you know its going to be juicy.  The cast includes Ana Ortiz, who played the sister in Ugly Betty.  Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes and Edy Ganem all play the maids.  Did I also mention Susan Lucci....she is back on TV and looking great. Lucci played one of my all time favorite soap opera characters on All My Children.  It's good to see here back on the screen, along with a cast full of talented Latinas.  Like the saying goes don't judge a book by its cover, and you shouldn't judge this show by its name.  If you love drama, mayhem and intrigue then give Devious Maids a chance. Don’t miss the premiere of Devious Maids Sunday, June 23 at 10/9c on Lifetime.
