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 »

At least it won’t be on abc.

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:)

Mark Consuelos Exits ‘Riverdale’

Last night, All My Children alum, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo Santos) made what appears to be his final appearance for now on CW’s soapy drama, Riverdale.

Consuelos departed Riverdale as a series regular on the season 5 finale, after coming on to the show in its second season in the role of villain, Hiram Lodge.

Riverdale executive producer and showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, shared with Deadline a statement on Consuelos contribution and run on the series: “From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell. And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.

Consuelos offered up these sentiments in a statement on his Riverdale exit: “First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity. Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

So, will you miss seeing Mark on Riverdale? Elsewhere, still no word on the “Pine Valley” reboot in which Mark and wife, Kelly Ripa, are two of the executive producers of that many All My Children fans were hoping would come to fruition. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Beloved Soap Stars Left Out of 2021 Primetime Emmy Broadcast In-Memoriam Tribute

Last night, during the presentation of the 73rd annual Primetime Emmys broadcast on CBS, the annual In-Memoriam segment brought with it so many households names in a year that saw so many legacy talents and more pass away.

The tribute was performed by Leon Bridges and Jon Batiste to Bridge’s song, “River”, and as the images of the departed played across the screens from Cloris Leachman to Cicely Tyson, to Ed Asner to Michael K. Williams, and more, it was clear that several of the major late daytime soap stars were not included in the on-air tribute as well as other omissions.

Now granted, we know they will all be a part of next year’s 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in-memoriam segment, but still these actors were a part of this community and not only appeared on the soaps, but other shows as well.

Those that daytime fans noticed were not included were: Michael Nader (Ex-Dex Dexter and Dimitri Marick, Dynasty and All My Children) Stuart Damon (Ex-Alan Quartermaine, General Hospital), Ray MacDonnell (Ex-Joe Martin, All My Children) and Jay Pickett (Ex-Frank Scanlon, Port Charles).

From primetime MIA action were: Michael Constantine (Ex-Room 222), Tanya Roberts (Ex-Charlie’s Angeles), Director, Richard Donner, writer Larry McMurty, and DMX, to name but a few.

However, the Television Academy did list all of its members who died on their website in the In-Memoriam section, because due to time constraints, they could not possibly showcase everyone.

What do you feel about the omissions of Nader, Damon, MacDonnell, Pickett, and more from the In-Memoriam tribute? Let us know in the comment section, but first watch the segment.
