CASHMERE MAFIA premieres tonight on ABC

The midseason is officially starting tonight with the premiere of CASHMERE MAFIA at 10 pm on ABC. I have to admit that I hadn’t been excited about this TV show when I first heard about it, mostly because there were so many other new shows that I was looking forward to and it sounded a lot like NBC’s Lipstick Jungle (which premieres February 7th), so I wasn’t sure I would even watch it. But now, with the writers strike, I have revised my options and will be tuning in tonight and watch Cashmere Mafia‘s pilot.

I am really hoping it exceeds my expectations because it would give me a new show to be excited about. Plus I really like Tom Everett Scott, who guest stars in the pilot.

Plot: Four ambitious, sexy women who have been best friends since business school — Mia, Zoe, Juliet and Caitlin — try to have it all. They aren’t just powerful and intelligent as singular executive sensations in today’s corporate battlezones; they’ve bonded into a formidable unit – a “Cashmere Mafia” — to support and counsel each other through good times and bad. How better to climb up the corporate ladder than with your buddies at your side? Whether it’s coping with rocky marriages, fending off scheming colleagues or just trying to find themselves in the midst of their chaotic lives, these compelling women use their valuable friendship to keep centered.
