DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES is the sexy, funny and utterly engaging look at one suburban neighborhood, where the secret lives of housewives aren't always what they seem. Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong, Nip/Tuck) narrates and takes us into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors. There's Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher, Tomorrow Never Dies), divorcee and single mom of Julie Mayer (Andrea Bowen, Boston Public); Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman, Sports Night) the ex-career woman and mother of four unmanageable kids; Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross, Everwood), the Martha Stewart on steroids; Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria, L.A. Dragnet), the ex-model and cheating wife; and serial divorcee Edie Britt (Nicollette Sheridan, Beverly Hills Ninja), whose romantic conquests have everyone buzzing.
Then there are the men, including 17-year old gardener John (Jesse Metcalfe, Passions); hunky neighbor Mike (James Denton, The Pretender); fed-up husband Rex (Steven Culp, Thirteen Days); Gabrielle's domineering husband Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira, Six Feet Under); suspiciously newly-widowed husband Paul (Mark Moses, Ally McBeal) and more. DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES' great guest stars include Sharon Lawrence (NYPD Blue), Lupe Ontiveros (Storytelling), Richard Roundtree (Shaft) and more.
Marc Cherry is executive producer and writer, Michael Edelstein and Tom Spezialy are executive producers, and Charles Pratt Jr. is consulting producer of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, from Touchstone Television.
