Desperate Housewives is an American television comedy-drama series created by Marc Cherry, who also serves as show runner, and produced by ABC Studios and Cherry Productions. Executive producers, as of the fourth season, are Marc Cherry, Bob Daily, George W. Perkins, John Pardee and Joey Murphy, David Grossman, Larry Shaw and Sabrina Wind.
The setting of the show is the street of Wisteria Lane in the fictional American town of Fairview in the Eagle State. It follows the lives of a group of women, seen through the eyes of their dead neighbor. They work through domestic struggles and family life, while facing the secrets, crimes and mysteries hidden behind the doors of their—at the surface—beautiful and seemingly perfect suburban neighborhood. The show is inspired, to an extent, by the 1999 film American Beauty.
The show features an ensemble cast, headed by Teri Hatcher as Susan Mayer, Felicity Huffman as Lynette Scavo, Marcia Cross as Bree Van de Kamp and Eva Longoria Parker as Gabrielle Solis. Brenda Strong narrates the show as the deceased Mary Alice Young, appearing sporadically in flashbacks or dreams.
Since its premiere on ABC on October 3, 2004, the show has been well received by the critics as well as the audience. The show is a multiple Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award winner, and in April 2007 it was reported to be the most popular show in its demographic worldwide, with an audience of approximately 120 million.[1]

Production

The idea for the series was conceived as Marc Cherry and his mother were watching a news report on Andrea Yates. Prior to Desperate Housewives, Cherry was best known for producing and writing episodes of Touchstone Television’s hit comedy series The Golden Girls and its successor The Golden Palace. In addition he had created or co-created three sitcoms: The 5 Mrs. Buchanans, The Crew and Some of My Best Friends, none of which lasted longer than a year. .Initially Cherry had a hard time getting any television network interested in his new series – HBO, CBS, NBC, Fox, Showtime, and Lifetime all turned his offer down.^ I had a hard time getting rid of selfishness, jealousy and ignorance; they are the root of all evil.

^ They picked at every nerve; they looked at my heart, my shoulder, and down to the leg-pick, pick, pick, all the time!

^ We must be there all the time, otherwise the minister is not pleased with us, and he says if we do not get down on our knees, we go into the fire.

[2] Finally, two new executives at ABC, Lloyd Braun and Susan Lyne, chose to greenlight it.[3] Shortly thereafter, Disney had both Braun and Lyne fired, following their approval of another new drama series: Lost.[4]
The ABC executives weren’t initially satisfied with the name of the new show, suggesting Wisteria Lane and The Secret Lives of Housewives instead,[5] but on 23 October 2003, Desperate Housewives was announced by ABC, presented as a prime time soap opera created by Charles Pratt Jr. of Melrose Place fame, and Marc Cherry, who declared the new show to be a mix of Knots Landing and American Beauty.[6] .While Cherry continued his work on the show, Pratt was credited as executive producer for the pilot episode only, remaining linked to the show as a consulting producer during the first two seasons.^ Wickland at first saw two men on the bench, but upon looking again, noticed only one.

.On May 18, 2004 ABC announced their 2004–2005 lineup, with Desperate Housewives in the Sunday, 9:00–10:00 p.m., ET slot,[7] which it still holds.^ Kläderna till dagens avsnitt Desperate Housewives 21:00.

^ Desperate Housewives 21:00 Mike blir arresterad för mordet på Monique.

.After only three episodes were broadcast, on October 20, ABC announced that Desperate Housewives, along with Lost, had been picked up for a full season.^ He said he had been frightened when they entered, but gaining courage, had gone for his revolver only to find that he was not able to pick it up.

[8]
.Desperate Housewives is produced by creator Marc Cherry (Cherry Productions), Austin Bagley and Touchstone Television (Fall 2004-Spring 2007), which is now ABC Studios (Fall 2007–present).^ Desperate Housewives 2007-09-16 Link TV & Film Kommentera här!

[9] The fifth season of the series debuted on Sunday, September 28, 2008.
On April 23, 2009, ABC picked up Desperate Housewives for a 6th season for the 2009–2010 television season.[10] The sixth season premiered on Sunday, September 27, 2009.[11]

Production crew

In addition to Marc Cherry, Tom Spezialy and Michael Edelstein served as executive producers for the first two seasons on the show. Spezialy, who also served as a staff writer for the show, left his previous position as writer and executive producer for Dead Like Me to join the Desperate Housewives crew. He had also worked as writer and co-executive producer on several shows, among them Ed, Jack and Jill, and Parker Lewis Can't Lose, while Edelstein had been the executive producer of Threat Matrix and Hope & Faith.
Second season conflicts arose among the executive producers. As a result, Edelstein left the show mid-season, and at the end of the season, so did Spezialy.[12] For the third year, Cherry was joined by award winning writer and producer Joe Keenan, of Frasier fame, and telefilm producer George W. Perkins, who had been on the Desperate Housewives crew since the show’s conception. Although receiving praise for his work on the show, Keenan chose to leave Desperate Housewives after one season to pursue other projects.[13] Replacing him as second-in-command to Cherry and executive producer for the fourth season of the show was Bob Daily, who had joined the crew as a writer and co-executive producer during the third season. Daily’s previous work include writing for the cartoon series Rugrats as well as for Frasier. .Also joining Cherry, Perkins and Daily for the fourth season were John Pardee and Joey Murphy, who had been with the series since the beginning.^ Subsequently she joined the band of invisibles who guard Mrs. Wickland and since then has very often spoken through the latter.

[14] Both had also worked on Cherry’s previous show The Crew in 1995, as well as on the sitcom Cybill.
Larry Shaw and David Grossman have, as of the first four seasons, been the most prominent directors, together directing more than half of the series’ episodes.

Filming

Desperate Housewives is filmed on Panavision 35 mm cameras; it is broadcast in standard and 16:9 widescreen high definition, though it is framed for the 4:3 aspect ratio.[15] The set for Wisteria Lane, consisting mainly of facades but also of some proper houses, is located on the Universal Studios Hollywood back lot. It is referred to by film crews as Colonial Street, and has been used for several motion pictures and television shows since the mid 1940s.[16] Productions to have been filmed here includes, among others, So Goes My Love, Leave it to Beaver, The 'Burbs, Providence, Deep Impact, Bedtime for Bonzo, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Gremlins, The Munsters, Psycho, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Ladykillers and Ghost Whisperer.[17] Interestingly from the street view of Bree's house the property appears double fronted, with rooms on either side of the front door. However, from the second season on the inside there is only one room off to the right and a set of external doors on the left. However, as of the second half of season 6, this missing room which Bree referred to as the downstairs study, was turned into a bedroom for Orson and is clearly seen. For the second season of Desperate Housewives the street went through some heavy changes. Among the most noticeable of these changes was the removal of a church facade and a mansion in order to make room for Edie’s house and a park.[18][19]

Opening sequence

.The initial idea for the show opening sequence was Cherry’s own, and after having asked sixteen companies to come up with suggestions how to best realize it, the producers finally hired Hollywood-based yU+co to provide the final version.^ I studied, but at the same time my life was so busy, so much taken up with others, and I was also trying to live the best I knew how.

^ These gather in a group and do not try to waken to the realization that they are still sleeping spiritually, because they have never asked: "Who am I? Where did I come from?

^ B. had lived in Cleveland and had come to Chicago the week before to close a real estate deal, but before final negotiations were completed, had returned for a week-end visit to Cleveland.

[20] According to the yU+co’s official website, the idea behind the sequence is “to evoke the show's quirky spirit and playful flaunting of women’s traditional role in society”.[21] The images featured are taken from eight pieces of art, portraying domesticity and male-female relations through the ages[22]
The first image shows Lucas Cranach the Elder’s painting Adam and Eve. A snake passes an apple to Eve before another, larger, apple, with the words ‘Desperate Housewives’ written on it, falls on Adam. Then follows the tomb paintings of Queen Nefertari of Egypt, the Great Royal Wife of Ramesses the Great. An animation of Queen Nefertari is seen standing within her tomb being overwhelmed by what appear to be countless children surrounding her. Next appearing is The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck painted in 1434 – Giovanni Arnolfini is seen eating a banana and throwing the skin on the floor, leaving it for his wife to sweep it away. The painting American Gothic by Grant Wood from 1930 then follows, and the farmer is shown smiling as he is touched on the chin by a pin up as his apparently disapproving wife frowns in front of a tin of canned sardines. The can appears on a kitchen work surface when the World War II poster Am I Proud! is shown, depicting a woman holding cans and jars including Andy Warhol’s Campbell's Soup Cans. The soup can then falls into the hand of a man featured in pop art work by Robert Dale, Couple Arguing and Romantic Couple. After the woman in this pictures is seen crying and giving her male companion a black eye, the image folds away, and the tree from Cranach’s painting reappears with the snake wrapped around it and the four main characters Bree, Lynette, Susan and Gabrielle appearing under the tree, each catching an apple. There is one variation for the opening theme (For DVDs), where Susan is in the Egyptian art. Lynette's in the can of sardines which close, resembling her face. Bree caught an apple, and passes it to Gabrielle. The music for the openings is composed by Danny Elfman, and has been awarded both an Emmy Award and the BMI TV Music Award.[23] In 2005 it was included on the album Music from and Inspired by Desperate Housewives. When an episode is running too long, only the first sequence (the falling apple) is kept. .From "Now You Know" onwards, only the main chorus of the theme is heard, which is the falling apple scene, and the photograph of the four lead actresses, crediting Marc Cherry as creator.^ Do you know where you are now?

^ Do you know that you are "dead" and are now a spirit?

^ Do you know that you are in California now?

Music

In addition to the theme composed by Danny Elfman, the series underscore music, composed by Steve Jablonsky, defines the overall sound of the show. .The much imitated music creates a musical counterpoint to the writing style and co-exists with the scenes as one of the most identifiable musical styles in television today.^ Imagine, if you can, a place where there is the most beautiful music, where there is a grand orchestra of masters, all playing in one grand unit of music.

The score is electronic-based, but every scoring session incorporates a live string ensemble that adds a certain intangible warmth to the score. Jablonsky incorporates recurring themes for events and characters into the score. He has been shaping the musical palette for the show since the 2nd episode of the first season.[24] Hollywood Records produced the first soundtrack album, Music from and Inspired by Desperate Housewives distributed by Universal Records, featuring music inspired by the series. Several of those songs have since been used in subsequent seasons.
Housewives's unique style combined with the heavy dialogue and quick-fire writing style limit the amount of popular music used in the series. The series' music supervisor, David Sibley, works closely with the producers to seamlessly integrate these musical needs into the show. In addition to featured performances by central characters such as Susan Mayer singing along with Rose Royce's "Car Wash" to jog Mike's memory, and Lynette's memorable rendition of "Boogie Shoes" atop a bar, several characters have been accomplished musicians, such as Betty Applewhite (a concert pianist) and Dylan Mayfair (a prodigy cellist), all requiring carefully planned training of the actors and preparation of the music. The often eclectic approach to music has created many water cooler moments in the show, among them, Orson's ex-wife Alma singing along with Cole Porter's period recording of "Let's Misbehave" as she drugs him in order to conceive his child, and George, the town pharmacist singing "Don't Give Up On Us" on Bree's front lawn as she takes pot shots at him with a shotgun.

The future

In August 2009, Marc Cherry said that Desperate Housewives will be on television for a few more years. The show's creator said that the series still "has a lot of life left in it", though he will soon take on a limited role behind the scenes. He told The Wrap: "Steve McPherson (ABC Entertainment president) and I agree that we shouldn't keep the show going for more than a couple [of] years past my seven-year initial contract. .We don't want it to just fade away.^ I don't want to call her away from Heaven.

^ You don't want to give anything away, you just want to keep it all for yourself.

^ Can't the police take him away from you, if you don't want him?

We've been in negotiations. .I expect to sign my new deal soon to set up a future scenario for the show.^ I asked the Band of Mercy to bring one of my followers in to show what I have to deal with.

^ Dad, wasn't it queer that I should wake up to the new birth 80 of life on my earthly birthday?

Someone else will run the show after season seven and I will serve as executive producer from a distance." He went on to explain that the program had been revitalized by the five-year leap forward for season five, saying: "Yes, I think it worked well. It was a way to start fresh and let everyone start from scratch in a way".[25]
.Marc Cherry has signed a new two-year deal with ABC that will keep Desperate Housewives on the air until the year 2013. But there's no confirmation on whether the show's main characters — played by Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria Parker — will want to go that long.^ I don't want to go there.

^ I had no money to go there.

^ We cannot go there and pray for them-no, no!

They're all only committed to the 2010–11 season, the show's seventh.[26]

Series synopses and episodes

.The first season began its original broadcast on 3 October 2004 and introduces the four central characters of the show: Susan Mayer, Lynette Scavo, Bree Van de Kamp and Gabrielle Solis, and their families and neighbors on Wisteria Lane.^ Invånarna på Wisteria Lane har kvartersfest och Gabrielle blir intresserad av pappan till en flicka hon tränar.

^ Look around; you may see some one who will make you care.

^ Would you like to see your mother surrounded by a crowd of earthbound spirits, who were making her drink?

.The fourth season began broadcasting on 30 September 2007,[27] and its main mystery revolves around new neighbor Katherine Mayfair and her family, who returns to Wisteria Lane after twelve years away.^ The second wife returned home again, and, during the ten years which have elapsed since this episode, no further disturbances have occurred in the family.

^ Selfishness succeeds in stealing Victory, who, for some years, is cruelly mistreated by Evil and Temptation, but is at last discovered by his parents and taken away from the Home of Misery.

Her daughter remembers nothing about living on Wisteria Lane. .Also, Lynette battles cancer; the newlywed – but unhappy – Gabrielle starts an affair with her ex-husband Carlos; Susan and Mike enjoy life as a married couple and learn that they are expecting a child; Bree fakes a pregnancy and plans to raise her teenage daughter's illegitimate child as her own; and Edie schemes to hold on to her new love, Carlos.^ They told her she was not married and that she had no child.

^ That means that I must crucify self, learn to serve, learn the lesson of life, learn to love others better than myself.

^ Some years ago a friend of ours, Mrs. F. W., was living in New York, very happily married and leading an active, normal life.

.A gay couple from Chicago – Lee (Kevin Rahm) and Bob (Tuc Watkins) – become residents of Wisteria Lane when they move into the house formerly occupied by Betty Applewhite (Alfre Woodard), and Gloria and Alma Hodge.^ She wrote that she had been in the best of health when she had moved into this house but had soon become afflicted with a strange ailment of the arms and legs which no doctors could relieve.

^ Alma Hodge - Ramlade ner från taket efter att hon blivit inlåst på vinden av Gloria.

^ He insisted that he was not dead, but was living in an old house with a band of outlaws (spirits) and that they would kill any one who dared to move into their house.

^ When I was five years old I died.

^ We labored with the entity for some time until he was finally able to tell us that his name was Jack Finch, that he was about sixty-five years old and had been an inmate of an institution near Madison, Wisconsin.

.The fifth season began broadcasting on 28 September 2008, with the time period jumping 5 years after the previous season, with some flashbacks to events which happened between the two periods.^ Can you remember anything happening to you at some time?

The season mystery revolves around Edie Britt's new husband, Dave Williams, played by Neal McDonough. Dave is looking for revenge on someone on Wisteria Lane (later revealed to be Mike Delfino and then, in a shocking twist, Susan). Susan deals with being a single mother and having a new romance with Jackson (Gale Harold). .Lynette and Tom learn that their son is having an affair with a married woman whose husband's nightclub burns down with all of Wisteria Lane's neighbors inside.^ We must learn the first lesson that Christ taught, to serve others, and to love God above all things and our neighbor as ourselves.

Carlos and Gabrielle have to struggle with their two daughters, Juanita and Celia, as Carlos's sight returns. Bree and Orson are having marriage problems because she is so focused on her career, and Orson begins to steal from neighbors as a coping mechanism. .As a result, Orson is in the street when Edie is racing away from her house after her discovery that Dave is a madman plotting to kill Mike and all those he loves; Edie swerves to avoid hitting him and crashes into an electrical pole, then exits the car, only to die of electrocution before she can tell anyone that Dave moved to Fairview in order to get revenge on the person who killed his wife and daughter.^ Have I killed all those people?

^ Why can't you tell those people that it was all my foolishness?

^ I loved my wife dearly, yet I disturbed her, for I did not know any better, and she was tormented--tormented by the one who loved and idolized her.

It is later when Susan reveals to Dave that it was she, not Mike, who was driving the car the night that a woman and child ran a Stop sign because the sign had fallen over on a dark stretch of road. Dave's revenge plans suddenly change as he says "Hi" to M.J., Mike and Susan's son. This season featured the show's 100th episode, revolving around Eli Scruggs (played by Beau Bridges) a handyman who had an important input in all of the ladies' lives. This episode featured flashbacks and returning characters, including Mary Alice Young, Martha Huber and Rex Van de Kamp. The episode was broadcast on ABC on Sunday, 18 January 2009.
The sixth season began broadcasting on Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 9pm.[28] .Its plot points, as of December 2009, consist of the conflict between Lynette and Gabrielle as Lynette attempts to sue Carlos, Katherine's eventual breakdown at losing Mike to Susan and Bree's affair with Karl, which is set to end tragically when Karl's hired plane comes into contact with the two of them and Orson.^ I am sorry that I was so set in my mind on the theory of Theosophy that we must come back again and again in order to reach the higher plane.

Plane Crash
Boom Crunch: It's the holiday season on Wisteria Lane. The episode mainly revolves around a plane crash, stemming from Karl Mayer's attempt to surprise Bree with a banner high above Wisteria Lane proposing marriage. When the pilot goes into cardiac arrest, and the wife attempts to land it, she crash lands onto the street, impacting the lives of everyone on Wisteria Lane – and, in the process, killing Mona Clark (Danny's hospital nurse, who was blackmailing the Bolens) and Karl Mayer. It also causes Lynette to miscarry one of her unborn twins, and paralyzes Orson Hodge.

Cast and characters

During its premiere season the show featured thirteen starring actors, all credited in the opening sequence. For the show’s second year, several actors, mainly child and teenage ones, who had guest starred during the first season, were promoted to series regulars without having their names included in the opening sequence. Instead they were billed as “also starring” during the first minutes of each episode, together with episode guest stars. This practice continued for season three and four.
.The thirteen starring actors for season one included four leading actresses: Teri Hatcher as Susan Mayer, a divorced mother with a sense for humor for drama and in search of love; Felicity Huffman as Lynette Scavo, a former businesswoman turned stressed out stay-at-home mother of four; Marcia Cross as Bree Van de Kamp, the seemingly perfect mother struggling to save her marriage; and Eva Longoria Parker as Gabrielle Solis, an ex-model whose unhappy marriage has had her beginning an affair with her 17-year-old gardener.^ The patient's sister, who was present, recognized in the latter intelligence the deceased thirteen year old son of the dead wife.

^ I loved you, but you know that my pride and my mother would not consent to our marriage.

^ Dwelling in the Home of Happiness, with Obedience as the servant, are Kindness and Friendship, father and mother of the maiden, Love.

Furthermore, Nicollette Sheridan played Edie Britt, Susan’s arch rival, described by her as “the neighborhood slut”, who since then slowly had grown to become somewhat of a fifth lead until Episode 5.23. Steven Culp played Rex Van de Kamp, Bree’s frustrated husband with secret sexual desires, while Ricardo Antonio Chavira portrayed Gabrielle’s spouse Carlos Solis, a rough business man who regarded his wife mainly as a trophy, and James Denton acted as Mike Delfino, the mysterious new neighbor who becomes Susan’s love interest. Brenda Strong portrayed the show’s narrator Mary Alice Young, who generally doesn’t appear in front of the camera, and whose unexpected suicide in the first episode remained a mystery throughout season one. .Mark Moses played Paul Young, Mary Alice's widower, who went to extremes not to have the reason for his wife’s suicide revealed, and Cody Kasch acted as Zach Young, the troubled teenage son of Paul and Mary Alice, who eventually turned out to be Mike's biological son.^ Mary Alice Young - Zachs mamma, tog själmord, startade hela serien Martha Huber - Paul, Zachs pappa mördade henne när han fick reda på att det var hon som hade pressat Mary Alice att avslöja mordet på Deidre.

^ Deidre Taylor - Mikes gamla fästmö och biologisk mamma till Zach, Mary Alice mördade henne.

Finally, Andrea Bowen took the part of Susan’s caring and kind-hearted teenage daughter Julie Mayer, and Jesse Metcalfe played John Rowland, Gabrielle’s teenage gardener/lover.
For the second season, Culp and Metcalfe left as show regulars, as Rex died from a heart attack and Gabrielle had ended her relationship with John. .Several actors who had appeared as guest stars during the entire run of the first season were promoted to regulars for the second year, including Doug Savant as Tom Scavo, Lynette’s husband who for the second season quit his job determined to become a stay-at-home dad; Brent Kinsman, Shane Kinsman and Zane Huett as Preston, Porter and Parker Scavo, Lynette and Tom's rascal boys; Shawn Pyfrom as Bree’s complicated gay son Andrew Van de Kamp; and Joy Lauren as Danielle Van de Kamp, Andrew's hardheaded sister.^ It was the man who had died several years before; they had known him in life and recognized him now.

^ The second wife returned home again, and, during the ten years which have elapsed since this episode, no further disturbances have occurred in the family.

^ A year after this Mrs. Lackmund died, and two weeks later, during the night, appeared to Mrs. Wickland, so life-like that the latter did not realize she was a spirit.

.Alfre Woodard and Mehcad Brooks joined the cast as Betty Applewhite and her son Matthew, who moved to the street in the middle of the night in order for the neighbors not to discover that they had Betty's other son Caleb – originally played by Page Kennedy, but soon replaced by NaShawn Kearse – locked up in the basement.^ Matthew Applewhite - Bettys son och Danielles pojkvän, dödades av prickskyttar då han hotade Bree med pistol.

Also joining the main cast for the second season, after guest starring in a few season one episodes, were Richard Burgi as Karl Mayer, Susan's ex-husband who becomes engaged to Edie, and Roger Bart as George Williams, Bree's pharmacist, and later obsessed fiancé, who had caused Rex's death. Bart, however, left the show mid-season, due to the suicide of George.
As the Applewhite mystery was solved in the second season finale, Woodard, Brooks and Kearse all had left the show when the third season began, as had Mark Moses, as Paul was framed for murder and incarcerated; Cody Kasch, due to Zach's becoming a millionaire after causing his ill biological grandfather to die and thereby inheriting his entire fortune; and Richard Burgi, following Karl being dumped by both Susan and Edie. Two additions were made to the main cast for season three: Kyle MacLachlan as Orson Hodge, who marries Bree and whose dark family history serves as the main mystery for most of the season, and Josh Henderson, playing Edie's bad boy nephew Austin McCann, who starts a relationship with Julie, but ends up getting Danielle pregnant and left the series mid-season.
.For the fourth season, after having appeared as a guest star during season three, Rachel Fox was added to the main cast playing Kayla Huntington, Tom's daughter from a previous "one night stand". Also joining the main cast were Dana Delany and Lyndsy Fonseca as Katherine and Dylan Mayfair, a mother and teenage daughter who lived on Wisteria Lane twelve years earlier but had left the street.^ You can learn in one day here what it takes ten or twelve years to learn on earth.

^ A former patient of ours, Mrs. Anna R., who had at one time been under our care and had been entirely restored to health, many years later left her home to care for a sister-in-law, Mrs. Jessie R., who was very ill.

^ A year after this Mrs. Lackmund died, and two weeks later, during the night, appeared to Mrs. Wickland, so life-like that the latter did not realize she was a spirit.

Dana Delany's character is married to Dr. Adam Mayfair played by Nathan Fillion. .Joining the cast in the fourth episode were Kevin Rahm and Tuc Watkins as a gay couple, Lee McDermott and Bob Hunter, who move in next door to Susan.^ You remember Tillie, who lived next door to me?

Actor Gary Cole joined the cast as a recurring character in the eleventh episode and played Wayne Davis, the ex-husband of Katherine Mayfair, Dana Delany's character.[29]
.Neal McDonough joined the cast of Desperate Housewives as a series regular in season 5. He is Dave Williams, the new husband of Nicollette Sheridan's character, Edie Britt.^ Kanske får vi se David Beckham och Robbie Williams i Desperate Housewives i framtiden, som ett gaypar.

[30] Max and Charles Carver have been cast as Porter and Preston Scavo, Joshua Moore as Parker Scavo and Kendall Applegate as Penny Scavo. Gail O'Grady, Peter Onorati and Gale Harold have also been confirmed to join the show as recurring characters.[31][32][33] Storylines involving Gale Harold's character needed to be placed on hold after he sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident.[34] Madison De La Garza and Daniella Baltodano also joined the cast as Juanita and Celia Solis, respectively, the young daughters of Carlos and Gabrielle Solis.
The show also features a large number of recurring guest stars, the most prominent being Kathryn Joosten and Pat Crawford Brown as elderly neighbors Karen McCluskey and Ida Greenberg. .Others include Christine Estabrook as Martha Huber, blackmailer of Mary Alice Young, sister of Felicia Tilman (Harriet Sansom Harris) and murder victim of Paul Young in season one and one episode of season five, Dougray Scott as Ian Hainsworth, Susan's season three love interest; Harriet Sansom Harris as Felicia Tilman, in search for her sister’s murderer during the first two seasons; Ryan Carnes as Justin, Andrew's boyfriend during season one and two; John Slattery as Victor Lang, former mayor of Fairview and Gabrielle's husband; Bob Gunton as Noah Taylor, the wealthy father of Mike's deceased fiancée and the biological grandfather of Zach, appearing during the first two seasons; and Gail O'Grady as Anne Schilling, a real estate agent who is having an affair with an underage Porter.^ She is not the one who was here first, nor the one with the baby.

^ She acted in a masculine manner and a brother, Mr. Herman M., realizing that some spirit had taken possession of his sister, at first thought the entity was a man.

^ Wickland at first saw two men on the bench, but upon looking again, noticed only one.

In the show's sixth season, Andrea Bowen re-joined the series' cast as a regular. After appearing as a guest star in the fifth season finale, Maiara Walsh was made regular. Drea de Matteo, Jeffrey Nordling, and Beau Mirchoff joined the cast as Angie, Nick and Danny Bolen, respectively, being the season's mystery. Kathryn Joosten was promoted to a series regular, after being a recurring guest star for five years. Madison De La Garza, who plays Gabrielle's eldest daughter, Juanita, and Mason Vale Cotton, who plays Susan and Mike's son, M.J., were also promoted to regulars. Max Carver left the show, as his character, Preston, left for Europe.

Casting

Eva Longoria Parker was the first reported to have landed a starring role, on February 9, 2004,[42] followed by Felicity Huffman (February 10),[43] Teri Hatcher (February 18),[44] James Denton and Ricardo Antonio Chavira (February 26),[45] Marcia Cross (March 1),[46] Sheryl Lee, Mark Moses, and Cody Kasch (March 3),[47] Andrea Bowen and Kyle Searles (March 4),[48] and Michael Reilly Burke (March 8).[49] .On 18 May 2004 ABC announced their 2004–2005 lineup, with Desperate Housewives as one of its new shows, starring an ensemble cast of these twelve names.^ One wanted to rule the world, but along came another sect, and they called themselves by a new name, and felt they wanted to rule.

[7]
On July 2, after having shot the first pilot, ABC announced that Lee, Searles and Burke were to be replaced by Brenda Strong, Jesse Metcalfe and Steven Culp, respectively.[50] While Lee was turned down after producers rethought the character of Mary Alice,[51] Searles was replaced because of the lack of chemistry between him and his onscreen lover, Eva Longoria.[52] Steven Culp had been the producer's first choice for the part as Rex Van de Kamp, but as he had missed a meeting with the ABC executive to complete shooting for another television show, Star Trek: Enterprise, the part had been offered to Burke instead. After the original pilot was filmed, Culp was off the Enterprise cast, and when asked again Culp accepted the part, and Burke was let go.[53]

The premiere year

The show was the biggest success of the 2004–2005 television season, being well-received by both critics and viewers. The pilot episode had 21.3 million viewers making it the best new drama for the year, the highest rated show of the week, and the best performance by a pilot for ABC, since Spin City in 1996.[61]
Along with Lost, Desperate Housewives was credited to have turned around ABC’s declining fortunes.[62] .Many critics agreed with Cherry’s initial comparison to the popular black comedy film American Beauty,[63] while its themes and appeal to female viewers were compared to those of the award winning TV show Sex and the City,[64] and its mysteries were said to resemble those of David Lynch’s classic TV series Twin Peaks.^ Sex and the City-filmen är färdig Inspelning av Sex and the City-filmen har börjat Samantha Jones på film tack Sex and the city-filmen .

^ Inspelning av Sex and the City-filmen har börjat 2007-09-21 Link TV & Film Kommentera här!

^ The Big Donor Show 2007-06-05 Link TV & Film Kommentera här!

[65] .In its first review, USA Today proclaimed the show to be “refreshingly original, bracingly adult and thoroughly delightful” and naming it to be “sort of Knots Landing meets The Golden Girls by way of Twin Peaks.^ When we step out of the mortal body we are still spiritual beings, and if we are free-minded those gone before will meet us and will show us the way to the spirit world.

[66]
Following the initial success of the show, the term "desperate housewives" became a cultural phenomenon. This warranted "real life desperate housewives" features in TV shows, including The Dr. Phil Show,[67] and in magazines.[68][69] Among the more prominent names to declare themselves fans of the show were Oprah Winfrey,[70] who also dedicated an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show to her visit at the film set; and the former First Lady of the United States, Laura Bush, who, in a comedic speech during a dinner with White House Correspondents' Association on April 30, 2005, stated "Ladies and gentlemen, I am a desperate housewife", referring to the show.[71]
The show ended up being the fourth most watched in the United States during the 2004–2005 season, with 23.7 million viewers each week.[72] The first season finale was watched by 30.62 million American viewers.[73]

Later years

For its second year, the show still maintained its ratings – with 22.2 million viewers, it reclaimed its position as the number four most watched show.[74] However, several critics started to notice a declining quality of the show’s script,[75][76] and USA Today’s Robert Bianco suggested that the part of the show getting “less good” was that showrunner Cherry had left much of the series writing in the hands of others.[77] Mid through the season executive producer Michael Edenstein left the show due to conflicts with Cherry and in May 2006, just a couple of weeks prior to the second season finale, so did Tom Spezialy.[12] .After the end of the season, Cherry would agree to the second year’s weaker script and also agreed that it had been a mistake to let go too much of the show.^ They would not let me go to school.

^ They say I am weak yet, but I am to go with them and they will show me the way, but that I have much to learn.

.He now stated that he was back full time, claiming that both he and the writing staff had learned from their mistakes.^ After you have learned the higher things of life, you do not care to come back to matter another time.

^ I would rather come back to help my wife and learn all I can about spirit return than to come and stay in one state for a certain time, then come back again as a baby.

^ There was a time-I recall now-I am getting some of my memory back.

[78][79][80]
The critics generally agreed on the improved quality for the third year,[81][82][83] but the overall ratings fell notably from previous seasons. Due to complications from her pregnancy Marcia Cross was put on permanent bed rest. After filming one episode from her own personal bedroom she was forced to take maternity leave with six episodes of season three still remaining. .It was predicted that the ratings would be down by over 25% since the premiere year.^ If you had had understanding you would not have been crippled all these years since your "death."

[84] However, for the last three episodes of the season, the rating turned somewhat, and the season ended up with 17.5 million viewers, falling from number four to number ten on the list of most watched shows.[85] While Cross's departure allowed for the much-underused Edie to have more story, fans noticed a decline in the stories during Cross's departure. Stories such as Lynette's emotional affair with restaurant manager Rick, proved unpopular. Furthermore, Susan's contrived triangle with Ian and Mike seemed tiring to many viewers, particularly in an episode where Susan is lost in the woods. Notable, however, was that the show’s rating among viewers age 18–24 increased from the previous season.[86]
For its fourth season, the series proved to have staying power.[87] The series averaged 18.2 million viewers. Ratings peaked in Episode 9 where 20.6 million viewers tuned in to see the heavily marketed tornado episode. .The show once again moved back up into the top 5 highest rated programs in the 2007–2008 season, being the #1 ABC drama and beating popular medical drama Grey's Anatomy for the first time in 2 years.^ I woke up and felt no pain at first, but when I got to that light all the pain came back.

^ I went into Spiritualism first, and found that was much better than Orthodoxy, so I followed it for some years, but I felt I could not get very far with it, and in the end I was obsessed.

^ In the spirit world your time is so taken up with duties that you have no time to think of coming back.

[88] It also became for the first time the #1 scripted show, beating CSI.
.Although ratings were down for the 5th season, along with every single scripted series on television, Desperate Housewives was still the most watched scripted series on ABC, consistently beating the other ABC flagship shows, Lost and Grey's Anatomy, although the latter is still number one in the 18–49 demo, followed by Housewives.^ After I was married my wife taught me a little about the other side of life-a more cheerful view than the orthodox one- still I did not believe.

^ A spirit who was still following his old occupation without any knowledge of his transition controlled Mrs. Wickland at one of our circles in Chicago.

^ All were unaware of being "dead," although Mary said, weeping wretchedly: "I thought they were going to kill each other, but here they are, still fighting."

In 2006, the American cable network Bravo launched their reality series, The Real Housewives of..., in the footsteps of the “real life desperate housewives” phenomenon.[89] .That program has taken place in areas such as Orange County, California, Atlanta, and two series within the New York-Tri-State Region, within the City itself and the New Jersey suburbs.^ We had a series of letters from Mrs. G. G., who resided in a village in New York; she was a psychic and clairvoyant whose house was haunted by a band of evil spirits.

^ Britton D. Evans, Superintendent of the Morris Plains, New Jersey, Insane Asylum, stated: "Brain tumor or brain fever may not affect the mind....

^ Of course, most of the time I was in New York, but at times I was in London and other places.

.According to a survey of twenty countries conducted in 2006 by Informa Telecoms and Media, Desperate Housewives was the third most viewed TV show in the world, after fellow American series CSI: Miami and Lost.^ Desperate Housewives 2007-09-16 Link TV & Film Kommentera här!

[90] During a fund raising auction for the British child charity ChildLine in December 2006, a walk-on part in Desperate Housewives had the highest bid, £17,000, beating Daniel Craig’s James Bond tuxedo from Casino Royale.[91][92]

Awards and nominations

Dana Delany, Teri Hatcher, Brenda Strong and Andrea Bowen at the 2009 GLAAD Media Awards
For its premiere season, the show was awarded six Emmy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. The nominations of all of the leading actresses except Eva Longoria Parker for both Golden Globes and Emmys received some media interest. While Longoria Parker seemingly wasn't bothered, stating for the press that “I'm new. I just arrived. I didn’t expect at all to be in the minds of the Academy”, Marc Cherry regarded them being left out as a “horrendous error”.[93] In the end, the Emmy went to Felicity Huffman, while Teri Hatcher received the Golden Globe, as well as a Screen Actors Guild award.
The show’s second Golden Globe Award for its first year was for Best Musical or Comedy TV Series, while the other Emmys went to Kathryn Joosten for her guest role as Karen McCluskey (beating, among others, fellow cast member Lupe Ontiveros), Charles McDougall for his direction of the pilot episode, Danny Elfman’s theme music, the picture editing of the pilot, and the casting of the series. The entire cast was awarded a Screen Actors Guild Award, and Nicollette Sheridan was nominated for a Supporting Actress Golden Globe.
In 2006 the show continued to receive several nominations. It was awarded with yet another Golden Globe for Best TV Musical or Comedy Series, and all the four leading women received Golden Globe nominations, although none of them won. The cast ensemble was awarded with another SAG Award, as was Felicity Huffman. Emmys nominations included, among others, guest actress Shirley Knight and supporting actress Alfre Woodard, although none of the resulted in an actual award.
The show did continue to be nominated in 2007 – Felicity Huffman was granted an Emmy nomination for the second time, and guest actresses Laurie Metcalf and Dixie Carter also received Emmy nominations. The show, along with actresses Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman, received Golden Globe nominations, and Huffman and the cast ensemble were also nominated for SAGs. None of the Golden Globe, Emmy or SAG nominations resulted in any actual awards.
2008 yielded the least nominations with none at the Golden Globes and only the cast being nominated at the SAGs. The show was nominated for four Emmys, including acting nods towards Polly Bergen and Kathryn Joosten for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. .Joosten won the show's seventh Emmy and first since its debut year.^ It is years since I made my first appearance here.

Other notable awards include the 2005 People's Choice Award for Favorite New Television Drama, the Future Classic Award at the 2005 TV Land Awards, the 2006 TP de Oro for Best Foreign Series, and the Golden Nymph at the 2007 Monte-Carlo TV Festival, among others.[94]

Screen adaptations

On February 26, 2007, The Walt Disney Company announced that four South American versions of the show were about to begin production: one for Argentina, one for Colombia, one for Brazil and one for Ecuador.[95] Later on, the Colombian and Ecuadorean productions merged, leaving three Latin American shows:
The Argentine version, called Amas de Casa Desesperadas, began being broadcast in 2006. The first year proved successful enough for a second season to begin production.[96] .The first season of the version for Colombia (RCN TV) and Ecuador (Teleamazonas), also entitled Amas de Casa Desesperadas, began being broadcast in Ecuador on May 2007, and is broadcast five days a week.^ Hey Baberibas version av Victoria 2007-01-08 Link TV & Film Kommentera här!

Games

In 2005, UK company Re:creation published Desperate Housewives Dirty Laundry Game, a board game based on season three of Desperate Housewives.[106] Players attempt to guess their opponents’ secrets by answering trivia questions, while keeping clues to their own secrets concealed.
2006 saw the release of two video games: Buena Vista Games released the sim computer game Desperate Housewives: The Game, featuring an original storyline spanning 12 episodes.[107] The game is set on Wisteria Lane, but the player does not play as any of the housewives, although they frequently appear.
A couple of months later, Gameloft released a mobile game based on the series.[108] “The inspirado for Gameloft’s take on Desperate Housewives comes from the most unlikely place, too – the original Mario Party on the Nintendo 64.”[109]

Soundtrack and literature

.In September 2005, Hollywood Records released a CD (distributed by Universal Music), Music from and Inspired by Desperate Housewives, featuring music inspired by the series, as well as sound clips taken from the first season of the show.^ After a number of spirits had been taken from a patient who was very unmanageable at first, we had the following experience, which clearly shows the suffering that spirits may endure when enmeshed in the aura of a mortal.

The songs included have been described as promoting “girl power”, and among the artists appearing – all being female – were LeAnn Rimes, Gloria Estefan and Shania Twain.[110] Controversially, no originally composed music from the show is included on the CD.
Two books have been officially released within the Desperate Housewives franchise. .In September 2005 ABC’s sister company Hyperion Books released Desperate Housewives: Behind Closed Doors (ISBN 978-1401-3082-61), a companion to the first season of the show, written by the production team behind the series.^ I taught them to close the door to the spirit world, and I taught them to read only my books.

[111] One year later, in October 2006, Hyperion published The Desperate Housewives Cookbook – Juicy Dishes and Saucy Bits (ISBN 978-1401-3027-71).[112] In addition, official wall calendars, featuring shots taken from the series, were published by Andrews McMeel Publishing for 2006, 2007 and 2008.[113]
Four unauthorized books written from different points of view were released in 2006. Delicious Housewives, A Novel of Erotica, by International best-selling author Tamarias Tyree (ISBN 978-0930865795), from RSVP Press, is an erotic parody of the popular TV series featuring the housewives' sexual misadventures which eventually lead them to an appearance on the Jerry Springer Show... Reading ‘Desperate Housewives’: Beyond the White Picket Fence (ISBN 978-1845-1122-02), from I.B. Tauris, is an academic look at the show by film studies lecturers Janet McCabe and Kim Akassm,[114] Welcome to Wisteria Lane: On America’s Favorite Desperate Housewives (ISBN 978-1932-1007-92), published by BenBella Books, consists of seventeen essays written from a feminist perspective,[115] and in Chalice Press’ Not-so-desperate: Fantasy, Fact And Faith on Wisteria Lane (ISBN 0-8272-2513-X) author Shawnthea Monroe is giving a Christian interpretation of the show.[116] Also, following the “real life desperate housewives” phenomenon, several books have been released dealing with life strategies for contemporary women.

Fashion dolls

In December 2006 it was announced that the characters of Bree, Gabrielle, Edie, Susan and Lynette were to be made into 16 inches (41 cm) tall fashion dolls, produced by Madame Alexander.[117] In 2007 they were released in a limited edition of 300 pieces each.[118] A perfume was also released, named Forbidden Fruit.

Another Desperate Housewife

In conjunction with season six Marc Cherry was commissioned to write eight "mini-episodes" entitled "Another Desperate Housewife". The episodes were written after the previous season's extensive product placement proved unpopular with the fans. The mini-episodes were written to advertise the mobile phone company "Sprint" and involved just three characters. .The two main characters were Stephanie (played by Rebecca Staab) and Lance (played by David Chisum) who have moved into the former house of Edie Britt after her death.^ She wrote that she had been in the best of health when she had moved into this house but had soon become afflicted with a strange ailment of the arms and legs which no doctors could relieve.

^ He insisted that he was not dead, but was living in an old house with a band of outlaws (spirits) and that they would kill any one who dared to move into their house.

^ The house had been moved to Mr. C.'s lot, remodeled there, and the C.'s had then moved into it, only to be disturbed by noises of all kinds.

The third character, Elsa, was Stephanie's friend. As the episodes go on it is revealed that Lance and Elsa have been having an affair. Stephanie finds out and tells Lance to break it off. .Elsa suggests killing Stephanie, but Lance gets a text message on his phone indicating he's seeing another woman and a furious Elsa shoots him.^ Another evening four spirits were brought from the haunted house; first two women, then "Pete," who had been a dexterous pickpocket in life, and a woman named Kate, who had been killed by Pete and had "hounded" him ever since.

^ I stepped over to the other track and another train, which I did not see coming, killed me.

In truth, Stephanie sent the message herself. The final mini-episode has Elsa being arrested and Stephanie attracted to a handsome policeman at the scene. Each episode ended with a Mary Alice-like narration saying things such as "This is suspicion on the Now Network" or "This is betrayal on the Now Network".
