Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Devious Maids, an American adaptation of a Mexican soap opera, is a dramatic comedy produced by the makers of Desperate Housewives. The content isn't as strong as Housewives, but it still contains lots of mature stuff, including some bloody violence, lots of strong sexual innuendo and some sexual content (including scenes of people cavorting in bed partially dressed), and words like "bitch" and "crap." Drinking is frequent, and pill overdose is discussed (albeit humorously). It also highlights many of the stereotypes that exist about Latina maids in the United States. Teens who like this sort of show will find it entertaining, but it's really not intended for a younger audience.

Sexual Content

Inappropriate relationships and illicit affairs are themes in the show. Men are shown shirtless; women are taking off their clothes, in their underwear and/or naked (though no private parts are shown). Couples are shown in bed in intimate embraces. Some maids use sexy behavior to get what they want.


A stabbing is a central part of the story; a bloody crime scene is visible in one episode, the clean up of which is shown during the show's opening credits in a campy manner. People are shown falling down stairs and having other potentially dangerous accidents. A storyline involves a rape.


Words like "damn" and "bitch" are audible.

Social Behavior

The series notes the various ways domestic employees are treated on (and off) the job. It highlights (and occasionally reinforces) existing stereotypes about Latina maids in the U.S., as well as the privileged families who hire them.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Wine, cocktail, hard liquor, and champagne consumption visible and frequent. One eccentric cast member tries to overdose on pills, but this is treated with humor.
