My Congrats on Devious Maids

Monday, June 24th, 2013

This is a personal plug for a show that is an absolute guilty pleasure: Devious Maids. One of my closest friends, Rebecca Wisocky, has a major role and I couldn’t be more thrilled for her.

It premiered last night (Sunday, July 23) on Lifetime. It’s created by Marc Cherry of Desperate Housewives fame.

I met Rebecca on my husband’s student film shoot in 2003. I was producing his movie, Flightless Birds, in rural South Dakota. She was one of the main actors. The three of us just clicked. We continued to hang out in NYC, then she moved to LA and eventually we followed. It’s so fantastic to see someone who is so incredibly talented and who has worked so hard, finally get recognized on this level.

My favorite quote is from the review by Alessandra Stanley of the New York Times:

“Marisol is the central heroine, but it’s a villainess who steals the most scenes. Rebecca Wisocky, who played Bree’s mother on “Desperate Housewives,” is the imperious and manipulative Evelyn Powell, a woman who weeps when her maid is killed not because of the loss but because of the blood on her living room carpet.

Way to go my friend! And congrats to the whole cast.

Everyone–the show airs Sunday nights on Lifetime. Tune in!
