'Devious Maids': Susan Lucci Heads To Primetime (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Devious Maids" has brought Susan Lucci to primetime. The daytime diva spent more than 30 years playing Erica Kane on "All My Children," but now she's bringing the drama -- well, dramedy -- to "Devious Maids," Lifetime's newest nighttime soap.

The series from "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry and former star Eva Longoria follows a group of Latina maids working for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. Lucci plays Genevieve Delatour, a wealthy divorcee socialite. In the premiere of "Devious Maids," Genvieve had a little breakdown when her pool boy left her. Luckily, her maid Zoila ("Scurbs" star Judy Reyes) was there with her constant support.

"He said I looked like I was 40," Genvieve cried.

"Well, that’s not bad since you’re almost 60," Zoila said.

"Devious Maids" airs Sundays, 10 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
