Summary: About ten years ago on a sunny day in the loveliest of suburbs, in a town called Fairview, housewife Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong) decided to end it all. Now she takes us into the lives of her friends, family and neighbors... Her circle of girlfriends on Wisteria Lane includes Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), a known klutz who recently remarried the love of her life; Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), who struggles with her family and career; Bree Hodge (Marcia Cross), the owner of a thriving catering business and a successful cookbook author, whose lovelife is very complicated nowadays; the ex-model turned housewife Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Parker), who finds herself chasing after two daughters plus a wild niece. The ladies have welcomed the now single Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany), who lived on the street once before when Mary Alice was alive, into their small, tight-knit group, and the newest housewife to arrive on the lane, Angie Bolen (Drea de Matteo), promises to shake things up quite a bit.Then there are the men: Mike Delfino (James Denton), Susan's husband, a charming plumber; Lynette's adorable husband, Tom (Doug Savant), who always stays by his wife's side despite many challenges; Gabrielle's husband, Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira), who works hard to provide for his wife and daughters; Orson Hodge (Kyle MacLachlan), a devoted husband to Bree; and Nick Bolen (Jeffrey Nordling), Angie's creepy and secretive husband. The kids include Julie Mayer (Andrea Bowen), Susan's polite and charming daughter, who is now keeping some secrets of her own; Porter Scavo (Charlie Carver), one of Lynette and Tom's twins, an emotional rebel; Parker (Joshua Logan Moore) and Penny (Kendall Applegate), the Scavos' younger children; MJ Delfino (Mason Vale Cotton), Susan and Mike's cute young boy; Juanita (Madison De La Garza) and Celia (Daniella Baltodano), the Solises' young, mischievous daughters; Ana Solis (Maiara Walsh), Carlos' manipulative and spoiled niece; and Danny Bolen (Beau Mirchoff), Angie's strange and moody 19-year-old son. And finally there are the gay couple, Bob (Tuc Watkins) and Lee (Kevin Rahm), who moved from the city for a more quieter, peaceful life, and local busybody Karen McCluskey (Kathryn Joosten).From her unique vantage point, Mary Alice sees more now than she ever did alive, and she's planning to share all the delicious secrets that hide behind every neighbor's closed door in this seemingly perfect American suburb."Desperate...
