I found an official long description of the upcoming Eva Longoria exec-produced ABC pilot Devious Maids, helmed by Desperate Housewives director Marc Cherry. I have no further comments on this subject; enough was said in THIS previous post.

Devious Maids - set

I found an official long description of the upcoming Eva Longoria exec-produced ABC pilot Devious Maids, helmed by Desperate Housewives director Marc Cherry. I have no further comments on this subject; enough was said in THIS previous post.

I will only say though, that after reading the synopsis below, my opinion of the show hasn't changed. Whatsoever.

Via DeviousMaids.net:

They wash clothes they can’t afford, polish silver they’ll never dine with, and sometimes, they sleep with their employers’ husbands. It’s all in a days work for a Beverly Hills maid. They’re constantly surrounded by wealth and privilege, yet they’re never allowed to forget that they’re just the help. Meet Rosie (Dania Ramirez – Entourage), Marisol (Ana Ortiz – Ugly Betty), Carmen (Roselyn Sanchez – Without a Trace), Valentina (Edy Ganem – Like Crazy), and Zoila (Judy Reyes – Scrubs). It’s their job to clean up the messes left by the rock stars, filthy rich billionaires, and self-centered celebrities they work for. Even, if it means cleaning up a murder. But these ladies are anything but pushovers. They’ve all got their eyes on a bigger prize: a better life here in America.

Whether it’s immigrating their child from Mexico, or having a career in music, they’ll do whatever it takes, including flirting with the bosses’ son, blackmailing a philandering husband, or hiding an addict’s drugs. And they’re always there for each other. When their friend and fellow maid Flora is found brutally murdered, she took a shocking secret to her grave. Now, the Devious Maids will do anything to protect it. Between the spoiled-rotten “haves” and these beautiful “have not’s,” there’s plenty of upstairs-downstairs intrigue. Marc Cherry, the creator of the Emmy-winning Desperate Housewives, takes you out of the burbs and into a whole new neighborhood: the palm tree-lined streets and mansions of Beverly Hills for a fun, soapy peek inside the sordid lifestyles of the rich and famous.
