Miami: Actress Eva Longoria is best known for her role as Isabella Braña on the CBS soap opera The Young and the Restless from 2001 to 2003. She has received a Golden Globe Award nomination for her performance as Gabrielle Solis on the ABC television series Desperate Housewives. Now, she is turning executive producer of TV series Devious Maids.
Devious Maids, which is created by Marc Cherry and produced by ABC Studios, is a TV series about Hispanic domestic help working in Beverly Hills. Set to premiere June 23, the TV series starts with a mysterious murder. Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Ana Ortiz, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes are the five stars of the series.
"The tone of our series is very similar (to that of Desperate Housewives) but we give it some Latin spice," Dania Ramirez told EFE. "The series of itself is very different since the various characters and the plot develop from that murder," the Dominican actress said.
"The goal is that the audience of Desperate Housewives, some 20 million of them, will be captivated by 'Devious Maids' and will be added to the Latino-market viewers," said Roselyn Sanchez.
