Desperate Housewives is an American television comedy-drama and mystery series which first aired on ABC from October 3, 2004 until May 13, 2012, and was created by Marc Cherry. The series follows the lives of a group of women living on fictional street named Wisteria Lane as seen through the eyes of their late friend Mary Alice Young (portrayed by Brenda Strong), who narrates the series. The four main characters featured in the series are Susan Mayer (portrayed by Teri Hatcher), Lynette Scavo (portrayed by Felicity Huffman), Bree Van de Kamp (portrayed by Marcia Cross) and Gabrielle Solis (portrayed by Eva Longoria). The series received generally favorable reviews from critics and won numerous awards, including seven Primetime Emmy, two People's Choice, three Golden Globe, four Screen Actors Guild and many other awards. Its first five seasons were ranked within the top ten most-watched television shows in the United States. Huffman and Kathryn Joosten were the only actresses to win Primetime Emmy Awards for their roles of Lynette Scavo and Karen McCluskey, respectively, while Hatcher won a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for her role of Susan Mayer; Cross was nominated for both Primetime Emmy and Golden Globe Awards for her role of Bree Van de Kamp, while Longoria was nominated for Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards for her role of Gabrielle Solis. Strong, who narrated the series as late Mary Alice Young, was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance.[1]
