LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Lifetime channel says it's renewing "Devious Maids" for a second season.

Lifetime says the series about the lives of domestic workers and their wealthy bosses has proved the network's fastest-growing drama since its June debut.

"Devious Maids" is from "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry and includes Eva Longoria, who starred in the ABC drama, as an executive producer.

Inspired by a Spanish-language telenovela, the "Devious Maids" ensemble cast includes Ana Ortiz and Judy Reyes. Lifetime ordered 13 episodes for the second season.
