Behind the facade of a postcard-perfect subdivision live four women whose lives are anything but idyllic. Clutzy single mom Susan has bad luck at romance. Frazzled Lynette has to balance the corporate life and raise her rowdy boys. Ex-model Gabrielle and her husband are in a constant power struggle. And “Miss Perfect” Bree is trying to reupholster her way to happiness. Looking down on it all is Mary Alice, who recently took her own life.
