Enter the Jungle
Thursday, Feb. 7, at 10 pm/ET on NBC.
If you were a devoted Sex and the City
fan then you'll love Lipstick Jungle
, as both began as novels written by Candace Bushnell. With hip and powerful females at the center of the plot it's sure to become a staple on your TV schedule or at least on the DVR. Lipstick
also has a lot of buzz surrounding it and both critics and viewers have been wondering for months whether it will be better than its competitor, Cashmere Mafia
, which was created by SATC
scribe Darren Star. Sure, it's catchphrase - "It's a jungle out there, dress accordingly" - is a little cheesy, but the show promises not to be, with its chic wardrobe, sexy plotlines and witty dialogue. Who's who:
Three powerful women who are best friends - Wendy, Nico and Victory - have just been named among New York's 50 most powerful women. Wendy Healy, a film executive, is played by Brooke Shields. Victory Ford, a fashion designer, is played by Lindsay Price and Nico Reilly, a magazine editor, is played by Kim Raver. What's next:
Watch as these women tackle the big apple while trying to balance high-powered careers with their complicated relationships. Say what?!
All three women have starred on hit TV shows: Kim Raver on 24
, Brooke Shields on Suddenly Susan
and Lindsay Price on Beverly Hills, 90210
. What do you say?
Could this be the TV obsession we've been waiting for, or will it be swept into the pile of Sex and the City
copycats? - Robyn Ross
