Devious Maids, based on a Mexican telenovela following a group of Latina housekeepers in Beverly Hills, is soon headed for ABC.

Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry has signed on to write and executive produce the series, according to Deadline.

If the plot line of the telenovela is any indication, the new show won't stray far from the tone of Housewives.

Called The Disorderly Maids of the Neighborhood, the Mexican show revolves around murder, intrigue, and a mysterious suitcase of money.

In addition to Maids, Cherry continues to develop the spiritual drama Hallelujah, also set for ABC.
