Susan Lucci To Star In Marc Cherry's 'Devious Maids'
With Susan Lucci's former daytime home All My Children now canceled and producer Marc Cherry's Desperate Housewives bidding adieu after eight seasons, the timing was right for the ultimate pairing of star and new TV pilot. Lucci, whose iconic role as Erica Kane on the long-running ABC soap made her the highest-paid actress on daytime television, will play icy ritch b*tch Genevieve Delacourt on Cherry's Maids, which he developed with Housewives star Eva Longoria.
Based on a telenovela, Devious Maids will be about four domestic servants — played by Longoria, Anna Ortiz, Dania Ramirez and Roselyn Sanchez — who work for rich women, Delacourt being one of them. “Genevieve’s had one powerful man after the next and now in her 50s, she’s reduced to seducing pool boys," Lucci told the New York Post. “Marc Cherry is very funny and an intriguing storyteller. The characters are just delicious.”
While the show sounds as if it could be a ratings hit, Lucci said it's not yet time to pop open the champagne. "We don’t know if it’s a go yet,” Lucci said. “We shot the pilot and everyone was very hands-on. Marc was on the set at all times. It’s pretty hilarious. In a few weeks, after the upfronts on May 15, we should know for sure.”
