Fans of the original British series Mistresses won't be surprised to learn that the ABC adaptation is going in a very similar direction with Joss (Jes Macallan) exploring a connection with another woman beginning in Monday's episode.
Sparks first flew...
With a name like Mistresses, ABC's new drama has guilty pleasure written all over it.
Based on the British series of the same name, Mistresses stars Alyssa Milano, Rochelle Aytes, Yunjin Kim and Jes Maccallan as a group of women whose lives are full of illicit and complicated relationships — most of them involving being "the other woman," and one of them involving another woman. (Yes, we're talking about a lesbian relationship.)
Could it be that quality will reign over quantity (of millions of viewers)? The CW has inched a bit closer to anything resembling a full-season pick-up of Rina Mimoun's Privileged, by upping the series' additional episode count to five, for a freshman run total of 18 episodes.
