DES­PER­ATE HOUSE­WIVES:

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - MEDIA& MARKETING -

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.
