Whoever holds the dirt, holds the power...

FROM DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES' CREATOR MARC CHERRY AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER EVA LONGORIA

LIFETIME TO PREMIERE ITS ALL-NEW DRAMA DEVIOUS MAIDS ON JUNE 23 AT 10PM ET/PT

PROGRAM STARS ANA ORTIZ, DANIA RAMIREZ, ROSELYN SANCHEZ, EDY GANEM, JUDY REYES and SUSAN LUCCI

13-Episode Series Also Stars Rebecca Wisocky, Brianna Brown, Tom Irwin, Brett Cullen, Drew Van Acker, Mariana Klaveno, Matt Cedeno, Melinda Paige Hamilton and Grant Show

NEW YORK, NY (April 10, 2013) - Lifetime will premiere its highly-anticipated new drama Devious Maids, executive produced by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) and Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), on Sunday, June 23, at 10PM ET/PT. The ensemble all-star cast, Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty), Dania Ramirez (Entourage), Roselyn Sanchez (Without a Trace), Edy Ganem (Livin' Loud) and Judy Reyes (Scrubs), portray five maids with ambition and dreams of their own while working for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.

In Devious Maids, murder and mayhem collide in the mansions of Beverly Hills' wealthiest and most powerful families. Class warfare has never been as fun and dirty as it is in the tony enclave where the staff is as clever, witty, outrageous and downright devilish as their employers. Whoever holds the dirt holds the power, and before the season is over, illicit affairs will be revealed and deep dark secrets exposed as we learn the sordid details behind a shocking murder of a beloved housemaid.

The series centers on a close-knit group of maids who are bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and the melodramatic "upstairs-downstairs" universe that engulfs their employers. Rosie (Ramirez), a widow who left her son back in Mexico when her husband died, works as the maid and nanny for a pair of self-absorbed and successful actors, Peri and Spence Westmore (Mariana Klaveno, True Blood, and Grant Show, Swing Town). Aspiring singer Carmen (Sanchez), hopes that her pop star employer Alejandro (Matt Cedeno, Days of Our Lives) can help jump-start her career, but Odessa (Melinda Paige Hamilton, Mad Men), his very loyal housekeeper and her boss, will stop at nothing to stand in her way. Zoila (Reyes) is the senior maid for Genevieve Delatour (Susan Lucci, All My Children), a co-dependent, emotionally unstable wealthy woman. She works alongside her teen daughter Valentina (Ganem), who has a crush on Genevieve's handsome son, Remi (Drew Van Acker, Pretty Little Liars).

In the series premiere, the women turn to one another for support when their friend and fellow maid Flora (Paula Garces, CSI Miami) is brutally murdered at the home of her employers, Evelyn and Adrian Powell (Rebecca Wisocky, American Horror Story, and Tom Irwin, Grey's Anatomy), at one of the largest society events of the year. Meanwhile, newcomer Marisol (Ortiz) is hired to clean the home of Taylor and Michael Stappord (Brianna Brown, Homeland, and Brett Cullen, Damages), a newlywed couple with a complicated love history. But Marisol has ulterior motives and when someone she loves becomes wrapped up in Flora's murder, she goes undercover to learn the truth.

Inspired by the hit telenovela, Ellas son la Alegría del Hogar, Devious Maids is produced by ABC Studios. The series was created by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) and is executive produced by Cherry, Sabrina Wind (Desperate Housewives), Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), Paul McGuigan (Scandal), Larry Shuman (Kissing Miranda), David Lonner, John Mass and Televisa USA's Paul Presburger and Michael Garcia.
