NBC's 'Lipstick Jungle' gets Feb. 7 debut date

Posted on

You can’t keep a good woman down: NBC will premiere Lipstick Jungle, a new hour-long dramedy based on Candace Bushnell’s best-selling novel, on Feb. 7. The Thursday night series, which has a 13-episode order (though a prolonged strike could reduce the number of shows that will be shot), chronicles the adventures of three New York City friends: a film executive (played by Brooke Shields), a magazine editor-in-chief (24‘s Kim Raver), and a designer (90210‘s Lindsay Price). We should also mention that a certain Weekend at Bernie’s star is part of the cast. (No, not the Bernie guy. Andrew McCarthy!) Prepare for the inevitable comparisons with ABC’s Cashmere Mafia, another dramedy centered on a group of Big Apple women, this one produced by Darren Star and debuting in January. Which means both series will undoubtedly be compared to…all together now: Sex and the City.
