Shoe Carnival, Inc. (SCVL) a leading retailer of value-priced footwear and accessories, today announced its collaboration with Lifetime’s Devious Maids to further promote the Company’s first national, integrated advertising campaign. The advertising campaign coincides with the season two premiere of the hit series Devious Maids, which will debut on Sunday, April 20, 2014 at 10 p.m. EDT/PDT.
“We are excited to announce our strategic collaboration with Lifetime and the television series Devious Maids as we continue our first ever national advertising campaign,” said Cliff Sifford, Shoe Carnival’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that this unique marketing collaboration will resonate well as we expand into new markets and move deeper in existing markets to truly show customers that there is always something new for them to discover at Shoe Carnival for the entire family.”
Shoe Carnival’s national campaign with Devious Maids and new tagline “A Surprise in Store” will run on national cable with on-air, in-store and social support.

Devious Maids is executive produced by Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria, and stars Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramírez, Roselyn Sánchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes as five maids with ambition and dreams of their own while working for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills. Longoria will direct the series’ eagerly anticipated season two opener, marking her television directorial debut. Devious Maids is Lifetime’s fastest-growing scripted series ever and is the number one series across cable in its Sunday time period among Women. Its finale last September garnered three million Total Viewers, making the episode Lifetime’s best drama telecast in 2013.
