Viasat1 will begin airing DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, the multiple award-winning American television series from this Tuesday 25th February, 2014 at 9PM, replacing NCIS: Los Angeles which ended last Tuesday.
In this hit drama series, secrets and truths unfold through the lives of female friends in one suburban neighborhood, after the mysterious suicide of a neighbour. The suburban women seem to live on a picture perfect world… if it weren’t for all the lying, cheating and murder going on behind closed doors.
According to Viasat1 Programmes Manager, Frank Norteye, the introduction of Desperate Housewives is a strategic move to draw more female eyeballs to the channel “to balance our viewership”.
Starting from the third season, the story of Desperate Housewives continues six months after Orson Hodge deliberately injured Mike in a hit and run accident. Mike Delfino has been in a coma since. Susan Mayer takes care of Mike while he is in the hospital and befriends Ian Hainsworth, whose wife Jane is in a coma. Ian asks Susan out but she feels she might hurt Mike if she agrees to Ian’s proposal.
Bree Van De Kamp gets romantically involved with Orson Hodge and Orson later asks her to marry him. Lynette Scavo tries to stop Nora Huntington from forcing her way into the Scavo family while trying to keep Kayla Huntington, Tom’s illegitimate daughter, close. Gabrielle Solis threatens to send her surrogate, Xiao-Mei, off to China to work as a slave.
Later, at Bree’s engagement party, Carolyn Bigsby, Hodge’s neighbor accuses Orson of murdering his wife. A body is shown buried in clay in the new club house construction site.
