Lifetime Gives Devious Maids 13-Episode Order!; Starring Susan Lucci

The maids are about to get devious on Lifetime. The female-centric network has ordered Marc Cherry's "Devious Maids" to series after ABC passed on the pilot.

“We are thrilled to be getting into business with one of entertainment’s true visionaries," Lifetime said in statement. "This show and Marc Cherry’s unique story telling voice perfectly articulate Lifetime’s strategy of attracting top-tier creatives with their most original and exciting projects.”

Lifetime, which had been rumored to be in talks to pick up the series, will air 13 episodes of the series with a 2013 launch. The series follows the lives of five maids, "with ambition and dreams of their own while they work for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills," according to Lifetime. "Devious Maids" stars Ana Ortiz ("Ugly Betty"), Judy Reyes ("Scrubs"), Dania Ramirez ("Heroes"), Roselyn Sanchez ("Without a Trace"), Edy Ganem ("Livin’ Loud"), Grant Show ("Melrose Place"), Brianna Brown ("Homeland"), Rebecca Wisocky ("American Horror Story"), Tom Irwin ("Grey’s Anatomy"), Mariana Klaveno ("True Blood"), Brett Cullen ("Damages"), Drew Van Acker ("Pretty Little Liars") and "All My Children" veteran Susan Lucci.

“Marc Cherry is a visionary, and we are honored to share his newest inspiration, 'Devious Maids,' with Lifetime,” Barry Jossen, executive vice president of creative and production at ABC Studios, said in a statement. "'Devious Maids' is a perfect series for ABC Studios to continue its successful collaboration with the incredibly talented team at Lifetime."

The show earned a bit of criticism about its depiction of the Latino community, but Eva Longoria told HuffPost that the show is "a reality so why not tell their story and their point of view ... I think people really need to look at the paradigm of television and go, 'This is a very powerful medium for Latinos to have a voice. Let's support it so that they will make more of these.'"

Excited too! I'm sure the first season will be great

Mariana Klaveno (Lorena, True Blood) is enough for me to watch

WHOA! Lifetime is on the ball I hope the show is good it certainly does have a roaring cast line to kick things off and Lifetime need something to bridge the gap between shows like #Drop Dead Diva, Army Wives etc;.

Thanks Thomson also is there a clip of the Pilot out yet?
