Yes, DEVIOUS MAIDS, the new prime time soap created and executive produced by DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES’ alumni Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria for Lifetime is funny, upbeat and totally twisted (thanks in parts to evil socialite Rebecca Wisocky), but somehow it still fails to capture my full interest. Blame this on its carbon copy way of delivering the goods. The series feels totally recycled, like it’s another variation of Cherry’s last hit. It would have been so much nicer to see something different from him this time around, if only to prove that he can spew out real originality if he sets his minds to it. As is, one can only wonder if he’ll be stuck in one trick pony La La Land forever.
