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?

Wrong. Who owns a majority share of Lifetime?

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 upon a star turned around and broke my heart in a million pieces, I would take my soaps over any other kind of programing daytime or prime time.

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%).

At least it wasn’t picked up by Prospect Park. That would have been the kiss of death.

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 resident hunk and she brings a lot of fans and plain interest to this group. She also has Deadly Affairs another prime time venture – she’s not doing all that bad for a daytime star or for any star especially considering her age!!!!

Cady McClain Remembers ‘All My Children’ On Its 50th Anniversary Sharing: “I Will Always Be Grateful For the Experience, and For The Lifelong Relationship With All The Fans”

The beloved All My Children first aired on January 5th, 1970 on ABC and ran on the network until it was canceled back in September of 2013.  The next year, the show received a short-lived reboot online via Prospect Park.

One of the actresses to appear in both the network and online version was Daytime Emmy winning actress Cady McClain, who became soap-famous for her role as Dixie Cooney Martin and together with Michael E. Knight, became one of soaps all-time popular duos as Tad and Dixie.

While so many miss All My Children every single day and the indelible characters created by the late, great Agnes Nixon, McClain took to her Instagram on Sunday to relate what the soap opera meant to her in her life.

Here is what Cady shared along with a cover of Soap Opera Digest featuring Michael Knight and herself as Tad and Dixie: “Today I am celebrating the 50th Anniversary of “All My Children”! I started on the show when I had just turned 19 in the fall of 1988. I worked as a contract player thru 1996. I was back in the fall of 1997 again under contract and worked through 2001. That’s roughly 13 years. Then I came back for a year in 2006, then for a couple months in 2012. Then I did the internet version for six weeks and then… the show was done.

GH's Michael Easton On 'A Christmas Carol' Episode: "I Was Humbled To Be Part Of Such A Talented Ensemble"

For many years this show and the people on it were like family to me. The makeup artists as much mom’s as my own mom to me at times. And thanks to the work I was able to afford some art school and college as well. I saw many great shows (both American and International) that came to NYC, which opened my eyes to what performance could be. It allowed me to do a lot of Off-Broadway theater and roles in five Indie films while working my day job.

I was nominated three times and won my first Emmy. I made some lifelong friends like Michael E. Knight, James Patrick Stewart, Jill Larson, Penny Bergman, Julia Barr, Lonnie Quinn and many others both in front of and behind the scenes. And most importantly, I was able to take care of my wild but wonderful mother. ‘She who drove me nuts’ but impressed on me the importance of having art in ones life. Who read me poems and took me to museums. My child who died but who I so grateful to have known. Thank you ABC and all the producers and writers who supported me and my work. Because of your support my life was richer, broader, more interesting. I will always be grateful for the experience …. and for the lifelong relationship with all the fans! Massive shout out to the daytime fans who continue to support me in my projects. When I meet one of you on the street I am truly grateful for your time and that we got to share some really special moments together. . .”
