LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Marc Cherry‘s “Devious Maids” hasn’t been relegated to the dustbin of TV history just yet.
The hour-long drama, which was passed over by ABC in the recent pilot season, might find a home at Lifetime, an individual with knowledge of the situation confirms to TheWrap.
ABC Studios, which produced the pilot, is in preliminary talks with Lifetime about picking up the project, a soapy drama based on a Mexican format that follows the lives of five ambitious maids while they work for wealthy Beverly Hills residents.
Lifetime had no comment on the talks.
The network is also developing a drama about “Silence of the Lambs” character Clarice Starling, following the early days of the FBI agent’s career.
Deadline first reported the news.
