Directed by Michael Walker, the film stars Garcés as a maid caring for a spoiled family who gains some extra leverage when the son of her employers comes home with a bloodied car after a hit and run accident.

Paladin Picture will release the film theatrically and through digital platforms this spring.

The Maid’s Room, filmed in The Hamptons, was screened at the Hamptons International Film Festival.

Garcés most recently appeared as the ill-fated Flora on Lifetime’s Devious Maids. She also portrays Lea Marquez on All My Children.

Garcés is best known for her appearances in Clockstoppers and The Harold and Kumar franchise.


Lifetime Renews Sanchez’s “Devious Maids” for a Second Season

Roselyn Sanchez will be reporting for maid duty for another season…

As predicted, Lifetime has renewed the 40-year-old Puerto Rican actress’ sudser Devious Maids for a 13-episode second season.

Following a not-so-spectacular premiere, the telenovela adaptation has managed to see ratings steadily improve to become Lifetime’s fastest-growing drama in its history.

On August 4, Devious Maids garnered a series high 2.9 million total viewers, up 45% vs. the show’s June 23 premiere. This past Sunday the series registered 2.7 million viewers.

Devious Maids has made Lifetime the No.1 cable network in the Sunday 10 PM time slot among women.

“One of the most daring series on television, Devious Maids has quickly become a hit,” said Lifetime’s EVP and GM Rob Sharenow.

Created by Marc Cherry and executive produced by Eva Longoria, the series is based on the telenovela Ellas son la alegría del hogar.

Devious Maids centers on a close-knit group of maids (Sanchez, Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramírez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes), bonded together by their jobs, life struggles and boss’ melodramatic “upstairs-downstairs” universe.

The women turn to one another for support after a fellow maid Flora (Paula Garcés) is brutally murdered at the home of her employers.

Devious Maids also stars Susan Lucci, Rebecca Wisocky, Tom Irwin, Mariana Klaveno, Grant Show, Matt Cedeño, Melinda Page Hamilton, Drew Van Acker, Brianna Brown and Brett Cullen.
