The drama series was originally developed for ABC with the broadcaster ordering a pilot from the Desperate Housewives creator. However, despite Devious Maids generating some buzz ABC decided not to pick up the pilot for the Autumn season and almost immediately reports surfaced claiming Lifetime was interesting in picking up the series.
Well now that’s been officially confirmed; Devious Maids will air on Lifetime. The broadcaster has ordered 13 episodes of the drama which revolves around five maids who work for the rich and famous of Beverly Hills. Amongst the cast of the pilot were daytime queen Susan Lucci, Ana Ortiz, Judy Reyes, Mariana Klaveno and Brianna Brown. Devious Maids is expected to air on Lifetime next year.
