The show, from Desperate Housewives' Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria, follows five Latina maids, played by Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes, who work for the rich and famous in L.A. Last month, writer Tanisha L. Ramirez called the series "a wasted opportunity" in an op-ed piece for The Huffington Post based on a minute-long trailer.
