If you liked Desperate Housewives, you'll love Devious Maids, the new brainchild of Housewives creator Marc Cherry, who recently sold his Devious idea, for which he already got All My Children's Susan Lucci on board, to Lifetime. Also slated to star are Ana Ortiz of Ugly Betty and Boston Legal, Judy Reyes of Scrubs and Oz, Dania Ramirez (pictured) of Entourage and Heroes, and Roselyn Sanchez of Without a Trace, who also did a stint on Desperate Housewives. Eva Longoria is also an executive producer of Devious Maids.

Cherry was originally looking to land ABC, the home of Desperate Housewives, for Devious Maids, but found a niche among the execs of Lifetime, which is also, incidentally, owned by ABC Studios, reports USA Today. "We are thrilled to be getting into business with one of entertainment's true visionaries, said Nancy Dubuc and Rob Sharenow in a joint statement. "This show and Marc Cherry's unique storytelling voice perfectly articulate Lifetime's strategy of attracting top-tier creatives with their most original and exciting projects."

Devious Maids will premiere on Lifetime sometime in 2013.
