Hola Casa Despesperadas

Amas_de_casa_desesperadashighresMeet the damas of Calle Manzanares.

Univision and Disney have unveiled the cast of the Spanish-tongued version of “Desperate Housewives,” and by the looks of it, and them, it appears they’re going for a faithful translation of the ABC hit with “Amas de Casa Desesperadas.”

Seasoned telenovela thesps Scarlet Ortiz, Ana Serradilla, Lorna Paz, Julieta Rosen and Gabriela Vergara are taking on the Susan, Gabrielle, Lynette, Bree and Edie roles — or in this rendition, Susana, Gabriela, Leonor, Regina and Roxana. Lucia Mendez will take on the narrator/seen-in-flashbacks role of Mary Alice, aka Alicia. Even the male characters are adhering to their English-language counterparts, with sexy plumber Mike Delfino becoming Miguel Santini (played by Peruvian telenovela heartthrob Diego Ramos), sexy underage gardener John Rowland becoming Pedro Linares, etc. etc.

Univision’s spin on “Casa Desesperadas” is lensing in Argentina and expected to bow on Univision next season.

Pictured above, from left, Ana Serradilla (Gabrielle), Lorna Paz (Lynette), Lucia Mendez (Mary Alice), Scarlet Ortiz (Susan), Julieta Rosen (Bree) and Gabriela Vergara (Edie).
