Hatcher’s deal also calls for her to direct an episode of the freshman dramedy, which returns with all-new episodes on Monday, June 5.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to direct,” the actress said in a statement. “So many of the crew and cast of Desperate Housewives have been encouraging me to do this for a long time, from Vanessa Williams, James Denton, to the talented camera crew department and producers. Now that I have time, I’m excited to whole heartedly conquer new ventures.”
Hatcher’s four-episode arc kicks off on June 15.
