The over-the-top soap "Devious Maids," coming to Lifetime Sunday, June 23, reveals messy lives inside spotless homes.
In this, a maid is raped and murdered. The first two episodes do a great job of establishing the main characters -- five housekeepers and their employers.
The maids are friends and share an easy rapport. A new housekeeper, Marisol (Ana Ortiz, "Ugly Betty"), enters their Beverly Hills world and tries to befriend them, but it's clear she has an agenda. She's different -- more educated, removed -- and asks too many questions. She also wears red high-heeled wedges to clean.
Inspired by a telenovela, "Devious Maids" has broadly drawn characters, particularly the employers. Evelyn Powell (Rebecca Wisocky, "American Horror Story"), whose maid was slain, could teach royalty about entitlement. »
