In this hilarious murder mystery spoof, the housewives of Hysteria Lane desperately seek the perfection of Brie Van de Cramp.  After her husband’s untimely passing, suddenly broke Brie starts a maid service called ‘Heavenly Housekeepers’.  Her business cleans up, until her super-maids start getting ‘wiped out’ in the spotless homes of her best friends!  Working mom Frizette Schizo finds her ‘heavenly housekeeper’ dead on the ironing board – permanently pressed!  Can Frizette suspect her twins and still be a good mother?  Another housekeeper is found hung up with the hang-up clothes.  And things really heat up when Susan Clumsy’s maid ends up in the dryer on ‘high cotton’!  Each colorful, manicured house seems to hold a kooky secret, but the big revelation is the identity of the killer!  Hysteria Lane residents include sexy housewife Grabby Sleaze, her lawn boy-toy John Wetlands, weird neighbor Mr. Pickle, vampy divorcee E.Z. Britt, heavenly housekeepers Marta Stewart and Betty Croaker, hunky plumber Mike Plugg and many more!
