'Devious Maids' Showrunner: ABC's Passing on the Show Was a 'Blessing' TheWrap
“Devious Maids” showrunner Marc Cherry said at a Television Critics Association panel that ABC's decision not to move ahead with the show was a “blessing,” and expressed satisfaction with the drama’s home on Lifetime, reports TheWrap.com.
“Interestingly, Cherry said he has only received one note from Lifetime, which was over a difference of opinion on a casting decision. The showrunner said he ultimately won out and it has worked well, though he did not reveal the character or actor’s name,” the story notes.
The show’s co-executive producer Eva Longoria, who was a star of Cherry's former ABC show “Desperate Housewives,” will direct her first-ever television episode in "Devious Maids'" second season, the story adds.
The second season of the drama starts taping Wednesday, with the season premiere set for April 20.
