I love Desperate Housewives and while I’d normally be moderately excited about the premiere of another season of Wisteria Lane drama, I’m doubly excited this season due to the addition of Drea de Matteo to the cast. If you’re a fan of the former Sopranos star (“Chris-ta-fa!”), you’ll appreciate the video clip we have of de Matteo from the sixth season premiere of DH.
It wouldn’t be Desperate Housewives if there weren’t some new family moving into Mary Alice’s old house, right? This time around it’s the Bolen family, which includes Angie (Drea de Matteo), her husband Nick (Jeffrey Nordling) and their weird son Danny (Beau Mirchoff). Below is ABC’s series and season description and further down are the promised video clips.
“A primetime soap with a truly contemporary take on the "happily ever after," 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. Commenting from her elevated P.O.V., she took us into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors. This season, more of the shockingly delicious secrets viewers have come to know and love await her circle of girlfriends. When Mike Delfino (James Denton) makes his choice between Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher) and Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany), one woman is driven to a mental breakdown; Lynette (Felicity Huffman) and Tom Scavo (Doug Savant) face the challenging realities of yet another pregnancy; Bree Hodge (Marcia Cross) -- Martha Stewart on steroids - struggles to break free of Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) and her inhibitions; and Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Parker) is put to the test by husband Carlos' (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) teenaged niece now in their care.
A colorful new housewife moves to Wisteria Lane with her family, bringing along secrets shrouded in mystery. Angie Bolen (Drea de Matteo) and her husband, Nick (Jeffrey Nordling), have moved into the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood. But when their peculiar son, Danny (Beau Mirchoff), causes a stir, they risk the threat of revealing their shameful past.
From her unique vantage point, Mary Alice sees more now than she ever did alive, and she's planning to share all the juicy secrets that hide behind every neighbor's closed door in this seemingly perfect American suburb.
