LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Recasting is complete on ABC's new drama "Desperate Housewives."

Brenda Strong, Steven Culp and Jesse Metcalfe have joined the show, which chronicles the secret lives of four suburban women (Felicity Huffman, Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria and Marcia Cross) though the eyes of their dead friend Mary Alice Scott.

Strong, who replaces Cheryl Lee, will narrate the series as Scott and will make guest appearances in flashbacks.

Culp, who steps in for Michael Reilly Burke, will play the husband of Cross' character.

Metcalfe will play a young gardener who works for a rich couple and has an affair with the wife (Longoria). The role was originally played by Kyle Searles.

The scenes in the pilot featuring Strong, Culp and Metcalfe's characters will be reshot.

Culp, whose credits include "Thirteen Days" and "Nurse Betty," will next be seen in indie "The Sisters." Strong recently co-starred on the WB's comedy "The Help." Metcalfe spent five years on NBC's soap "Passions."
