Devious Maids coming to Canada, June 23

DeviousMaidsThe new Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) and Eva Longoria-produced series Devious Maids arrives on Canadian screens Sunday, June 23.

Lifetime will air the new drama, which centres on the lives of five maids played by Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty), Dania Ramirez (Entourage), Roselyn Sanchez (Without a Trace), Edy Ganem (Livin’ Loud) and Judy Reyes (Scrubs).

In Devious Maids, class warfare has never been as amusing and as scandalous as it is in the tiny enclave of Beverly Hills where the staff is as clever, outrageous and downright devilish as their employers.

The series follows five close-knit maids who are bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and the dramatic universe that engulfs those that employ them.

Before the season is over, affairs will be revealed and deep dark secrets exposed as we learn the grimy details behind the murder of a beloved housemaid at one of the biggest society events of the year.

In the premiere episode, the maids turn to one another for support when their friend and fellow maid Flora (Paula Garcés, 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).

Meanwhile, newcomer Marisol (Ana Ortiz, Ugly Betty) is hired to clean the home of newlyweds Taylor and Michael Stappord (Brianna Brown, Homeland and Brett Cullen, Damages). But Marisol has ulterior motives and when someone she loves becomes wrapped up in Flora’s murder, she goes undercover to learn the truth.

Also starring are Mariana Klaveno (True Blood), Grant Show (Melrose Place), Matt Cedeño (Days of Our Lives), Drew Van Acker (Pretty Little Liars) and Melinda Paige Hamilton (Mad Men).
