:: desperate Housewives::
A primetime soap with a truly
contemporary take on "happily ever after," this new hour- long drama takes a
darkly comedic look at suburbia, where the secret lives of housewives aren't
always what they seem.
Looking down on her friends andfamily isn't a way of life for Mary Alice Young
(Brenda Strong) … it's a way of death. One day, in her perfect house,in the
loveliest of suburbs, Mary Alice ended it all. Now she's taking us into the
lives of her family, friends and neighbors, commenting from her elevated P.O.V.
Her small circle of girlfriends are
wondering why one of their own would do something so rash… and so messy. There's
Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), the divorcee and single mom who will go to
extraordinary lengths for love; Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), the ex-career
woman who traded the boardroom for boredom, mixed with moments of sheer panic as
the mother of four unmanageable kids; Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross), the
Martha Stewart on steroids, whose family is about to mutiny; and Gabrielle
Solis, the ex-model with everything she's every wanted – a rich husband, a big
house – so what is she doing with John, the 17-year-old gardener (Jesse
Metcalfe)? And there are her neighbors, including serial divorcee Edie Britt (Nicollette
Sheridan), whose romantic conquests have everyone buzzing.
