Casting directors for the new Television series Devious Maids is currently seeking background actors to work in the Atlanta area.
Recently Eva Longoria, the executive producer of the hit Lifetime series commented on the project.
“People within the Latino community have had their lives touched by nannies, housekeepers, gardeners, valets – whatever occupations we have occupied as Latinos – it’s a reality,” says Longoria, “so why not tell their story and their point of view? I commend and applaud Marc Cherry for doing that. He’s not Latino – and he has no obligation to do it. And he is one of the greatest show-runners of the past decade.”
Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty), Dania Ramirez (Entourage), Roselyn Sánchez (Without a Trace), Edy Ganem (Livin’ Loud) and Judy Reyes (Scrubs)
come together to create the cast who portray five maids that have ambitions and dreams while they clean up after the rich and famous. “It’s Desperate Housewives meets Upstairs Downstairs,” says Ortiz, who portrays the newcomer Marisol, who bonds the other four maids. “I’m definitely a devious maid because I’m not a maid; I’m sort of undercover as a maid. I’m trying to right a wrong that has been done to my family. It’s a little bit like Revenge.”Lifetime Network's Devious Maids not only swept up 1.99 million viewers upon its US premiere on the Lifetime network last June, but thanks to word of mouth, went on to clean up with three million viewers for its season finale.
