Longmire And The Glades Earn Premieres On A&E, Devious Maids Headed To Lifetime

There’s good news for fans of programming on a couple of different networks this morning. Over at Lifetime, Marc Cherry’s big pilot, Devious Maids, has finally, finally been given a premiere date. There’s good news for fans of A&E’s summer programming, as well. Both Longmire and The Glades have also earned premiere dates.

We’ve actually known A&E’s programming would be coming back for a long while. The Glades will premiere at 9 p.m. ET on Monday, May 27 and will be followed an hour later by Longmire, the crime drama starring Robert Taylor and Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff. If that date is sounding mighty familiar, it likely should. Monday, May 27 happens to be Memorial Day. So, if you aren’t busy barbecuing your day away and forgetting the actual purpose of the holiday, you totally have A&E to look forward to.

Devious Maids is a little trickier. The program, which follows four women who work for wealthy households in the Beverly Hills district, received a series order all the way back in June. I half expected the program to appear around midseason, but when that didn’t happen, a summer 2013 or even fall premiere seemed likely. With casting fairly cemented, Deadline is reporting Devious Maids will hit the schedule on June 23. If you want to know what the show will be like, you’ll have to go no further than the telenova Ellas son la Alegría del Hogar, which the series is based on.

We’ll keep you updated as more summer premiere dates get announced.
