Review : Devious Maids S01E01

Labels: , , ,

Marc Cherry is best known for Desperate Housewives, and what better way to follow up with a similar style show but substitute housewives for latino maids and you have his new show pretty much down pat.

The show revolves around four maids working in Beverly Hills. Marisol (Ana Oritz - Ugly Betty) finds employment at the home of the Westmore's, an insecure newly married couple as their maid while also looking after the Delatour family whose maid is killed in the opening scene of the show (it is one of the most amusing things I have ever seen!)

Carmen (Roselyn Sanchez) starts working for Sam (Wolfe Parkes) and is trying her best to kick start her music career but must fight against the personal assistant to get her music noticed.

Mother and Daughter Zoila (Judy Reyes - Scrubs) and Valentina (Edy Ganem) work for a vein, pill addicted mother and son. Valentina is in love with the rich son, but Zoila is intent to convince her that nothing will come of this.

The four stories sort of all link in together, delivering what has been one of the best pilots of the mid season. If you loved Desperate Housewives you will love this show. This show has Marc Cherry all over it, and with Eva Longoria as executive producer a lot of the humour rings true to Housewives.

There is murder, humour, deception, suspense and a whole lot of drama that will keep fans on the edge of their seats in every minute of this show. If you like these kind of shows you will really love this one.

This is my pick for the summer's hottest show! Catch Devious Maids on Lifetime every Sunday.
