Since we last posted the promo trailer on the site for the upcoming Lifetime series, there has been more backlash against the Eva Longoria-produced TV show Devious Maids, directed by Desperate Housewives' Marc Cherry, and starring Dania Ramirez, Ana Ortiz, Roselyn Sanchez, Edy Ganem, Judy Reyes and Susan Lucci. If you haven't been following any of it, apparently The Huffington Post's Tanisha Ramirez posted an op-ed piece criticizing the show stating it was a "wasted opportunity" and that "the minute-long trailer manages to efficiently portray Latinas as hypersexual, nosy, scheming and, at times, totally invisible domestic servants, one set of pushed-up breasts, devilishly squinted eyes and »

"Drop Dead Diva" survived its own brush with TV death earlier this year and now Lifetime has officially set the Season 5 premiere for Sunday, June 23 at 9 p.m.
That's right before the launch of the network's new series "Devious Maids" from "Desperate Housewives" executive producer Marc Cherry, and the same night the network's "The Client List" was expected to air its Season 2 finale (there's no official word yet if the Jennifer Love Hewitt series will wrap a week earlier or simply in a different timeslot).
As recently as February it looked as though "Diva" wouldn't be back, at least on Lifetime, after word leaked in January that the network had canceled the show. But a passionate outpouring from fans and some financial wheeling and dealing between the network and studio Sony Pictures TV led to a revival.
The "Diva" Season 5 premiere is titled "Back From the Dead" and picks up »
