Lifetime Sweeps Up Marc Cherry's Devious Maids

at . Comments

Having failed to get picked up by ABC, Devious Maids has now been swept up by Lifetime.

The network announced a 13-episode order today of the Marc Cherry-producer drama that stars Ana Ortiz, Judy Reyes, Dania Ramirez and Roselyn Sanchez as employees who work for the uber rich in Beverly Hills.

“Marc Cherry is a visionary, and we are honored to share his newest inspiration, Devious Maids, with Lifetime,” said Barry Jossen, Executive Vice President of Creative and Production, ABC Studios.  “Devious Maids is a perfect series for ABC Studios to continue its successful collaboration with the incredibly talented team at Lifetime.”

The series, partially based on Mexican telenova Ellas son la Alegría del Hogar and produced by ABC Studios, will debut in early 2013.

It would certainly seem to be an appropriate fit for a network that has found success with Army Wives and Drop Dead Diva.
