Most everyone is familiar the TV drama, "Desperate Housewives." But, not everyone has seen it in Spanish.


The new PBS documentary "Now En Espanol" follows Marcela Bordes, Ivette Gonzalez, Gabriela Del Carmen Lopetegui, Natasha Perez and Marabina Jaimes -- the five Latina actresses behind the "Desperate Housewives" voices who entertain America's Spanish audiences.

"Now En Espanol" director Andrea Meller and Marabina Jaimes, who is the voice of Mary Alice, sat down with host A Martinez to talk about the progress Latina actresses have made, and explain that not all was glitz and glamour along the way.

"Now En Espanol" premieres Friday at 10 p.m. on PBS Voces.
