Devious Maids centers on a close-knit group of maids who are bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and the upstairs-downstairs universe that engulfs their employers. Rosie, a widow who left her son back in Mexico when her husband died, works as the maid and nanny for a pair of self-absorbed and successful actors, Peri and Spence Westmore. Aspiring singer Carmen, hopes that her pop star employer Alejandro can help jump-start her career, but Odessa, his very loyal housekeeper and her boss, will stop at nothing to stand in her way. Zoila is the senior maid for Genevieve Delatour, a codependent, emotionally unstable wealthy woman. She works alongside her teen daughter Valentina, who has a crush on Genevieve's handsome son, Remi.
