Kim Raver and Pals Lead Jungle Expedition to Saks

It was a jungle outside of Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City Thursday night — a Lipstick Jungle, that is. The stars of NBC's new drama braved below-freezing temperatures as they walked the red carpet in gorgeous sleeveless dresses. But even the frigid temps weren't enough for Kim Raver to stop gushing about the city the show calls home. "Being born and raised in New York City, I love [shooting here]," she says. "It's such an energized city. When you're shooting on the street you have it all there and it's really exciting." Once Raver and costars Brooke Shields and Lindsay Price made it inside Saks, they headed up to the shoe department to mingle with other celebs like Matthew Perry, who snuck in without doing any press, and The Office's Angela Kinsey. Partygoers grooved to tunes by Paul Sevigny (yes, Chloe's brother) and sipped on some cocktails — but only clear ones. The white carpet of Saks prevented anything with color from being served. But luckily the party didn't pr... read more

Those of us even mildly interested in checking out Lipstick Jungle (aka one of the few new series on TV) will get our makeup one week earlier than the series' Feb. 7 premiere on NBC. The network is giving TiVo subscribers the chance to download it free at Amazon's Unbox from Jan. 31 to Feb. 6. If the curiosity about the new Candace Bushnell series is killing you, here's your chance to get ahead of the game.And the best part about it? Our own Mitovich says that Lipstick "isn't nearly as unwatchable as Cashmere Mafia." — Anna Dimond read more

What is wrong with you? I ...

Question: What is wrong with you? I loved Cashmere Mafia! It was so real and honest. Looks much better than Lipstick Jungle.


Answer: Actually, I found Lipstick (premiering Feb. 7) to be the superior Sex and the City rip-off, but that's not saying much since I loathed Cashmere. With the exception of Lindsay Price's vapid and utterly annoying fashion designer — a role that should've gone to Melinda Clarke — Lipstick's females are more interesting. Come to think of it, Kim Raver's morally conflicted mag editor has more dimensions than all of Cashmere's Barbie dolls combined. And wait until you lay your peepers on her boy toy, played by Fashion House's Robert Buckley (or as I like to call him, Scott Speedman and Jake Gylle read more

NBC Strikes Back with "More Original Programming Than 1Q 2007"

NBC has at long last unveiled its own "strike schedule," and there's little to be surprised by here, as it has been leaked out in drips and drabs over recent weeks.

It will be followed by Deal or No Deal and Medium.• Starting Jan. 9, Law & Order: CI (episodes previously aired on USA Network) airs at 9, followed by mother ship Law & Order.• The Baby Borrowers, "a social experiment that puts teen couples on the fast track to adulthood," premieres Feb. 18. read more

When NBC runs out of new episodes of ER on Feb. 7, it will fill the medical drama's time slot with Sex and the City retread Lipstick Jungle. But on a hopefully positive note, striking writers and producers agreed to a fourth day of contract talks today, which hadn't even been scheduled. Come on, guys, get 'er done! — Ben Katner read more

Sopranos' Bracco Welcomed to the Jungle

Lorraine Bracco by Craig Blankenhorn/HBO

Being a mobster's shrink seems to have been quite the panacea for Lorraine Bracco, who memorably played Tony Soprano's put-upon psychotherapist on the HBO hit. Not only has she just finished shooting a Lifetime pilot called Long Island Confidential (in which she plays the mom of a homicide detective), but TV Guide is told she'll show up in a recurring role in Lipstick Jungle, NBC midseason series based on Candace Bushnell's follow-up to Sex and the City. Bracco will portray the duplicitous nemesis of the movie studio chief played by series star Brooke Shields. Looks like she might have learned a lesson or two from her former patient. — Ileane Rudolph read more

Paul Blackthorne (The Dresden Files) has replaced Chris Wiehl (Love Monkey) as Brooke Shields' husband on the NBC midseason drama Lipstick Jungle.... Also per the Reporter, Patrick Swayze has been tapped to topline The Beast, A&E Network's drama pilot about a veteran FBI agent who trains a new partner (Travis Fimmel) in his psychologically clever style while being pursued by an Internal Affairs team and being subjected to Dr. Houseman's rhetoric. read more

ABC at TCA: Lost in Translation

Peter Krause by Bob D'Amico/ABC

Get lost, ABC. That was the hostile undercurrent behind much of the questioning for ABC's entertainment president Stephen McPherson Wednesday morning. We critics can be a surly group, especially this late in the TCA press tour. (ABC has the bad luck to be up to bat on the final two days of the three-week hype-a-thon.) But give us something legitimate to gripe about — in this case, the decision by Lost's producers to skip the TCA and instead address the game-changing events behind Lost's cliff-hanger at the Comic-Con fan convention in San Diego on Thursday — and you'd better watch out.One reporter even put it this way: “Are we not important enough for you?” At first, McPherson tried to shrug it off with a joke, saying that he has hired Don Imus — fired earlier this year from his radio and TV gigs for a racial slur — to join the show. (This was the closest he or anyone else came to addressing the Isaiah Washington/Grey’s Anatomy debacle during his of... read more

NBC's Lipstick Jungle Kisses Show-runners Goodbye

Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline have been let go as the executive producers and show-runners of Lipstick Jungle, NBC's mid-season entry adapted from Candace Bushnell's best-seller.

Outside of Chris Wiehl (Love Monkey) being replaced as Shields' hubby, no other casting changes are expected as part of the retooling. read more
