'666 Park Avenue' nears end, 'Devious Maids' starts this weekend
ABC will begin burning off the final episodes of the Vanessa Williams vehicle "666 Park Avenue" Saturday night at 9, while Lifetime's new drama "Devious Maids," featuring Susan Lucci, kicks off Sunday night at 10.
One of several new series with Hudson Valley ties to be canceled, "666 Park Avenue" was a supernatural prime-time soap with a cast that included Williams (a Chappaqua resident), Erik Palladino (a Yonkers native) and Dave Annable (a Suffern native and former Walden resident).
Here's how ABC is previewing this weekend's episode, "The Comfort of Death:" "Jane's dreams continue to fuse with reality; Sasha's return thrills Gavin and Olivia; Louise gets an opportunity to work for a top magazine; Brian gets close to making a deal for his play; Alexis searches for a way out of her deal with Gavin."
"666 Park Avenue" may be nearing the end of the road, but fans looking for a new soapy drama with a regional connection can tune in Sunday at 10 to "Devious Maids," which follows five Beverly Hills maids who know the deepest, darkest secrets of their rich and famous bosses.
Developed by “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry, the show features Lucci, a Scarsdale native who won her Emmy for her role on the soap opera “All My Children.” According to Lifetime's website, Lucci plays Genevieve Delatour, a wealthy divorcée and socialite who’s sheltered yet generous to her longtime maid, played by Judy Reyes.
Here's how TV Guide breaks down the pilot: "In the opener, the ladies turn to one another for support when a fellow maid is murdered during one of the largest society events of the year. Meanwhile, a newcomer is hired to clean the home of a newlywed couple with a complicated love history and gets caught up investigating the homicide."
