With growing ratings, Lifetime’s Devious Maids has received a pickup for a 13-episode second season. After an OK but unspectacular premiere, the telenovela adaptation has been steadily improving to become Lifetime’s fastest-growing drama in its history. On August 4, Devious Maids drew series high 2.9 million total viewers, up 45% vs. the show’s June 23 premiere. (The series posted a 2.7 million viewers this past Sunday.) It has made Lifetime the No.1 cable network in the Sunday 10 PM time slot among women. “One of the most daring series on television, Devious Maids has quickly become a hit,” said Lifetime’s EVP and GM Rob Sharenow. Created by Marc Cherry based on the telenovela Ellas son la Alegría del Hogar, Devious Maids is executive produced by Cherry, Sabrina Wind, Eva Longoria, Paul McGuigan, Larry Shuman, David Lonner, John Mass, Paul Presburger and Michael Garcia. ABC Studios is producing. Devious Maids centers on a close-knit group of maids (Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramírez, Roselyn Sánchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes), bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and boss’ melodramatic “upstairs-downstairs” universe, that turns to one another for support after a fellow maid Flora (Paula Garcés) is brutally murdered at the home of her employers. Devious Maids also stars Susan Lucci, Rebecca Wisocky, Tom Irwin, Mariana Klaveno, Grant Show, Matt Cedeño, Melinda Page Hamilton, Drew Van Acker, Brianna Brown and Brett Cullen.
