Lifetime Considering Bringing Marc Cherry's Devious Maids To Their Line-up!

An interesting item yesterday appeared at Deadline.com with news that their still could be life for Marc Cherry’s follow-up to Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids!

According to Deadline, “Lifetime is looking at the pilot, which missed the cut at ABC, and has had conversations with its producer, ABC Studios. While Lifetime appears interested, sources stress that the talks are preliminary. The cable network has been looking at a number of busted broadcast pilots and cancelled series,  but Devious Maids seems to be closer than most to the new, younger and sexier direction Lifetime is taking with series like The Client List.”

Based on the Mexican format, Devious Maids follows four maids (Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes) with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. The project’s cast also includes Susan Lucci, and Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria is among its executive producer.

So will La Lucci still get to play her comedic turn on the series?  What do you think of the chances of Lifetime picking-up Devious Maids? Do you think it’s a wise choice and would you tune-in? Let us know!

Too bad Lifetime didn’t do the same for AMC and OLTL.

My thought exactly. It still isn’t too late. Some of the actors are still available. Others could recycle in and out, depending on their availability.

I agree too, but I’m afraid it probably is too late. So many of the actors have gone on to other things and same for the production crews. They were an important part of these shows.

So true! The had two ready made shows & could’ve been raking in the ratings! I’ll never get why they were dismissed by all the stations! Somebody should’ve had enough sense to take them on!

I hope they pick it up, because it sounded like an interesting show. I think Marc Cherry is wonderful……loved Desperate Housewives, and was looking forward to watching Devious Maids, but of course ABC did it again and made a stupid decision. Well, I hope their bad move becomes Lifetimes big Gain.

I will watch anything that Susan Lucci is in. She could do a show on the proper way to replace a roll of toilet paper and I’d watch. I miss my Erica Kane so much!!!

I hope they do! They could add it to their Sunday night line-up. First “The Client List”, followed by “Devious Maids”.

I so would love to see this happen – Devious Maids on tv on Lifetime or any network. I think the original problem or challenge was four Latino maids and the stereotypes. A bigger market for viewers may have been created with four maids from four different ethnicities. What Lifetime should think though is that forget about the four maids who can bring in their old fans but look realistically at Susan Lucci bringing in the soap fans from daytime including those who boycotted ABC. She could help sustain the show and prove she isn’t a hasbeen. People will have… Read more »

I hope Maids does make it to Lifetime, but Cherry may have to re-write it to be less stereotypical. I have a feeling that is the reason why ABC declined.

I think it could be even more fun if a couple of the “bosses” were non-white and their maids were white.

Whatever happens, just keep Susan Lucci!!

I hope Lifetime picks it up. I think it looks very entertaining, but if it had been on ABC I would not have watched it. Maybe ABC turning it down was a good thing:)

All My Children Alum Finn Wittrock To Headline ‘Green Lantern’

From Pine Valley to the DC Universe! Now comes word that former All My Children star, Finn Wittrock (Ex-Damon Miller) will take on the role of Guy Gardner/Green Latern on the upcoming HBO Max series, Green Lantern from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Television.

According to Deadline who dropped the casting news, Wittrock’s Guy Gardner/Green Lantern is “a hulking mass of masculinity, and, as rendered in the comics, an embodiment of 1980s hyper-patriotism. And yet, Guy is somehow likable.”

In the premise of the series, Green Lantern reinvents the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott, and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by a multitude of other Lanterns — from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

Previously, Finn received Emmy nominations for his work on American Horror Story: Freak Show and for Versace: American Crime Story.

So what do you think of Finn’s new role? Comment below.
