Welcome to Wisteria Lane, a small community in the suburbs that seems quite and safe. But appearances can be deceiving. Mary Alice one of the local housewives shocks everyone when she commits suicide and the other women of Wisteria Lane are left wondering why. Susan is a clumsy divorcee with a teenage daughter; she has eyes on the new guy that moved in but starts to uncover some unsettling things from his past. Lynette gave up her career to raise her unruly children and finds it hard to keep a handle on her situation. Gaby a retired runway model tries to keep herself busy with shopping; but when that fails there is always the teenage gardener just as long as her husband doesn’t find out. Bree is the local Martha Stewart of the neighborhood. She always has the prettiest yard, home-made cookies, and cleanest house. But all of these women have secrets that they keep hidden; but be sure by the end of the season some of them are sure to leak out.
