Producers launch investigation after raunchy scene is broadcast on internet

Desperate Housewives producers have launched an investigation to find out how a sex scene from the upcoming season of the show was leaked onto internet site YouTube.com.

Executives insist the provocative scene, featuring actress Marcia Cross and Twin Peaks actor Kyle Maclachlan, was not an official leak.

It’s the first time rough footage from a TV series which is still in production has appeared on the popular social networking site YouTube.com.

A spokesman for ABC said: ‘We are looking into the unauthorized clips of Desperate Housewives on YouTube, and will be having them taken down.’
