June Squibb is lending her sizable acting chops to the upcoming second season of Lifetime’s “Devious Maids.”
The Oscar-nominated actress will play Velma, the mother of Genevieve Delatour (Susan Lucci) in a two episode arc.
In addition to her Oscar, Golden Globe and Screen Actor’s Guild Award-nominated turn as the crotchety Kate Grant, Squibb’s film credits also include “About Schmidt,” “Scent of a Woman” and “Meet Joe Black.”
Squibb has also appeared on TV shows “Girls,” “The Millers,” “Getting On” and “Mike & Molly.”
From executive producers Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria, “Devious Maids” stars Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramírez, Roselyn Sánchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes. The series follows five maids and their experiences serving the tony uppercrust residents in Beverly Hills.
Sabrina Wind, Larry Shuman, David Lonner, John Mass and Televisa USA’s Paul Presburger and Michael Garcia also serve as executive producers on the show.
Season 2 premieres April 20, with the first episode directed by Longoria.
