Lifetime Sets June 6 for Two Season Premieres; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of April 4, 2016)

Devious Maids

This summer, the heat is on Monday nights, beginning June 6 when stacked season premieres of Devious Maids at 9pm ET/PT, followed by the critically acclaimed series, UnREAL at 10pm ET/PT will debut. Ten episodes of each series have been ordered. As of yesterday, UnREAL fans can also binge The Faith Diaries, a new scripted spinoff series, at mylifetime.com where all ten episodes are available. Written and produced by UnREAL co-creator and executive producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, the series follows season one favorite Faith (Breeda Wool), and her girlfriend Amy as they travel to Los Angeles to pursue their Hollywood dreams and learn about their relationship along way. As for UnREAL, having already tackled relevant matters of gender politics, the series, starring Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer as producers Rachel Goldberg and Quinn King, will stir up the drama in season two when Everlasting casts its first-ever African American suitor. Returning as series regulars are Craig Bierko as Everlasting's creator, Chet, who is on a quest to reclaim his full power on set; Josh Kelly as Jeremy, Everlasting's director of photography; and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman as Jay, a field producer whose ambitions run far beyond the show. Everlasting's new suitor Darius Hill, an All-American football star, will be played by B.J. Britt.

With a special appearance by Eva Longoria in the season four premiere of Devious Maids, murder and mayhem collide once again in the mansions of Beverly Hills' wealthiest and most powerful families in ten all new-episodes. Executive produced by Marc Cherry and Longoria, Devious Maids follows a close-knit group of friends, Marisol (Ana Ortiz), Rosie (Dania Ramírez), Carmen (Roselyn Sánchez) and Zoila (Judy Reyes), who are bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and the melodramatic universe that engulfs their employers. This season, Marisol finds herself acting as a support system to Evelyn (Rebecca Wisocky) in the wake of a big life change. Meanwhile, Rosie's positive and sunny disposition leaves much to be desired by her new boss, Genevieve (Susan Lucci) who is acclimating to a household without Zoila's honest and acerbic humor. Carmen continues to pursue her singing career until her cousin Daniela (Sol Rodriguez) comes to town and shakes things up. Marisol also finds herself in a new relationship, which eventually becomes a complicated triangle when her old flame Jesse reappears. The series also stars Tom Irwin, Grant Show and Nathan Owens. Joining in recurring roles are Longoria's Desperate Housewives castmate James Denton, Carlos Ponce, Ryan McPartlin, Stephanie Faracy and Elizabeth Rodriguez. Kathryn LaNasa also makes a guest appearance this season, joining her real-life husband, Grant Show.
