One day, in the loveliest of suburbs, housewife and mother Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong) decided to take her own life. Now, from her elevated state, Mary Alice introduces us to the lives of her friends, neighbours and family members living in the idyllic Wisteria Lane, a street where the lawns are green, the houses are pretty, the people are nice... and the secrets are deadly. Her circle of girlfriends on Wisteria Lane includes Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher, above), an accident-prone hopeless romantic, Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), a harried mother who gave up her successful career to become a full-time carer for her vast offspring; Bree van de Kamp (Marcia Cross), a perfectionist home fairy who strives to uphold an immaculate appearance; and Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria), a former top model turned trophy wife. 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 neighbour’s closed door in this seemingly perfect American suburb. Five years have gone on Wisteria Lane, and the lives of the housewives are forever changed.
