A primetime soap with a truly contemporary take on "happily every after," the hit series "Desperate Housewives" takes a darkly comedic look at suburbia, where the secret lives of housewives aren't always what they seem. The series began with Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong) leaving her perfect house in the loveliest of suburbs - and ending it all. Now she takes us into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors, commenting from her elevated P.O.V. Her circle of friends on Wisteria Lane include Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), the divorcee and single mom who will go to extraordinary lengths for love; Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), who recently went from being a stay-at-home mother of four back to her fast track career in advertising; Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross), Martha Stewart on steroids, whose recent widowhood has completely wrecked havoc on her perfect life; Gabrielle Solis, the ex-model with everything she's ever wanted - a rich husband, a big house, and now a baby to go with it all... the problem is she's not sure who the father is; and serial divorcee Edie Britt (Nicollette Sheridan), the free spirited real estate maven whose love life has everyone buzzing. Enter Betty Applewhite (Alfre Woodard) and her handsome teenage son, Matthew (Mehcad Brooks), who mysteriously move into a house they'd never seen before, in the middle of the night.
Then there are the men: Mike Delfino (Jamie Denton), a supposedly widowed plumber who has won Susan's heart; Lynette's adorable husband, Tom (Doug Savant), who volunteered to be "Mr. Mom" so his wife can go back to work; Gabrielle's better half, Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira), who is in jail and recently learned of his wife's infidelities with John (Jesse Metcalfe), the gardener; and Mary Alice's widowed husband, Paul (Mark Moses), who is on the run from the demons in his past.
From her unique vantage point, Mary Alice sees more now than she ever did alive, and she plans to share all the delicious secrets that hide behind every neighbor's closed door in this seemingly perfect American suburb.
Desperate Housewives: Second Season guest stars include 2006 Emmy®-Award nominated Shirley Knight (nominated Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series). Shirley Knight has previously won the 1993 Emmy® Award and Golden Globe® Award for Best Supporting Actress, Miniseries for TV's "Indictment: The McMartin Trial." And Bob Newhart, whose success in stand-up led to his own NBC variety show, "The Bob Newhart Show." The show earned Newhart an Emmy® Award nomination and a Peabody Award.
