Desperate Housewives tv seriesMary Alice, who narrates the show from the afterlife, had four friends: Bree Van De Kamp, the seemingly perfect mother of two teenagers struggling to save her marriage; Lynette Scavo, the mother of four whose husband is always away on business; Susan Mayer, the divorced mother in search of love finds love in the form of her new neighbour Mike Delfino, who has a secret of his own; and Gabrielle Solis, the materialistic ex-runway model who cheats on her husband. While trying to be good wives and mothers, the four friends also try to find out why their friend committed suicide. The discovery of a blackmail note among Mary Alice's belongings, a therapy session tape in which she admits her real name was Angela and her widowed husband's strange behaviour really make them wonder the mystery surrounding their deceased friend.

Mary Alice's suicide leaves behind a puzzle involving her husband Paul, son Zach, and a mysterious toy chest. The story begins with the unraveling through her four friends: Lynette, Susan, Gabrielle, Bree and her neighbors.

Gabrielle bribes a little girl to keep quiet after catching her and John in the act. Bree unsuccessfully tries to keep her marriage problems a secret. Susan confronts her ex-husband Karl and is locked out of her house naked. Lynette desperately tries to convince Tom to come to the ladies' dinner party.

Gabrielle decides to hold a fashion show on the street for charity. Susan is less charitable when she realizes Gabrielle was having an affair with John. John's mother thinks he is having an affair with Susan, forcing Gabrielle to come clean. Bree catches Andrew smoking marijuana and reports him to the school. Lynette is overwhelmed with her work and tries to find a nanny. Carlos is arrested, claiming he was set up.

Susan is left heartbroken when Mike is arrested for Mrs. Huber's murder. Lynette ensures Tom doesn't get his next promotion. Justin demands sex from Gabrielle or he will reveal her affair with John. Bree learns that Danielle is planning to lose her virginity to John.

Trivia

Creator Marc Cherry said he got the idea to write the pilot after a conversation with his mother. She told him that raising Cherry and his siblings with their father away most of the time made her feel "desperate" sometimes.

Teri Hatcher broke two ribs filming the scene where she stumbles into a wedding cake and insisted they didn't stop production.

Oprah Winfrey loved the show so much, she was invited to the set, and had an exclusive show in which she showcased a 15 minute "episode" where Oprah (as a new neighbor) learned of all the secrets of the housewives.

Bree's response when her son tells her he's gay is, "I'd love you even if you were a murderer," the same quote that Marc Cherry's mother told him when he came out.

All episodes except the pilot are named after songs and in the first season, all the song titles were from songs written by Stephen Sondheim. At Sondheim's birthday celebration, the cast filmed a segment specifically for the party, featuring the titles.

The license plates on the cars say "Eagle State".

Lynette's boss's name is Ed Ferrara. In real life, Ed Ferrara is writer and producer Kevin Murphy's former writing partner of several TV shows including "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show" (1997) and "Weird Science" (1994).

A fan loved the dress Gabrielle wore in the pilot and so much she wrote to the producers asking name of the designer and if he could design her a prom dress. The producers instead sent her the actual gown and she wore it to her prom.

New Amsterdam
John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
