After getting the shaft from ABC,  Marc Cherry’s Devious Maids has officially been picked up and by Lifetime! And that means just as Susan Lucci is about to make an appearance at the Daytime Emmys tomorrow night, she will definitely have more to talk about on the red carpet, as the series in which she co-stars finally gets a green light with a 13-episode order from Lifetime!

“We are glad the show has found a home,”  Ana Ortiz, one of the series stars told The Huffington Post exclusively via email this afternoon. “It is going to be such a thrill to work alongside these Devious Divas,” she added.

Ortiz says she’s not the only one who’s excited about the Lifetime pick-up–Marc Cherry is, too. “Marc seems excited about the partnership with Lifetime. I think he has a lot of wickedness up his creative sleeve…so fun!” she wrote.

Based on a Mexican telenovela format, Devious Maids follows four maids who work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills, but have ambitions and dreams of their own. The show stars Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”), Dania Ramirez (“Heroes”), Roselyn Sanchez (“Without A Trace”) and Judy Reyes (“Scrubs”), and is co-executive produced by Mark Cherry and Eva Longoria.

Look for Devious Maids to launch in 2013!

Will Susan Lucci be appearing? I know she did the pilot, but will she still be on the show itself? Has this been confirmed?

Seriously, Abc/disney owns a share of lifetime? I wasn’t going to watch anyway, but it’s nice to know. Someone should put a list up of the networks abc owns or is a part of so I can avoid it like the plague. You would think that with all the networks and the movies that disney owns they could have kept the soap channel and put One life to live and all my children there, instead of alienating all the soap fans from abc, What a bad business decision abc/disney made and I still can’t believe the place where you wish… Read more »

If they do a Drop Dead Diva and bring on Kim Kardashian as a guest star, I’m going to scream.

Getting the shaft from ABC? It’s simply moving Devious Maids from one Disney/ABC Television Group (DATG or Dumb and Terrible Garbage) network to another owned by DATG!

Who OWNS Lifetime? Lifetime is MANAGED by A&E Television Networks, which in turn is jointly OWNED by Hearst Corporation (42.5%) and Disney (42.5%), with NBCUniversal holding a minority stake (15%).

I think Susan Lucci is part of Devious Maids on Lifetime. I don’t think she would have said anything about DM at the Emmy’s if she wasn’t part of it. While the stars are the maids and Susan isn’t the maid many soap oriented and non soap oriented entertainment news outlet believe, suggest that Susan is the big name enven over Ortiz et al. rumour has it despite some people not liking the Erica Kane character Lucci is renknowned for Susan’s Genevieve Delacourt wasone of the highlights of the pilot which is being tweaked. Besides she plays mom to the… Read more »

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.
