Susan Lucci is headed for primetime.

The iconic soap opera star (All My Children) has signed on for Devious Maids, the upcoming ABC pilot from Marc Cherry that centers on a quartet of workers - Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Judy Reyes - and their wealthy employers in Beverly Hills.

Lucci Picture

According to Deadline, Lucci will portray Genevieve Delacourt, one of the core rich women on the series, whose status as a man eater has diminished over the years and who is feeling a bit depressed/unstable when we first meet her.

Sounds like perfect casting, no?

I think this is a fantastic move for Susan. She will be a knock out in this role. Sounds a bit like Erica Kane to me. She is perfect for the part and I cannot wait to see her. Also the news of Thorsten Kaye's role on "Smash" is wonderful. He, too, is an outstanding actor. I will enjoy both I'm sure!
