New ABC Show, 'Cashmere Mafia' Fairly Similar To 'Sex And The City'

From CatWalkQueen.TV

Based on four women, set in New York, written by Darren Star and styled by Patricia Field... if this isn't Sex And The City then I'm experiencing some serious de ja vu. The cast of new series Cashmere Mafia, along with Star appeared at the ABC TCA's to answer all the tough questions and the Sugar team were there to capture it all.

"This is a show that examines women from the point of view of women in business and the particular challenges they face as career women. SATC is a comedy about sex.... the shows are looking at women from two different points of view," Star said. Hmm...

Lucy Liu (who presumably plays the new Carrie) said of Field's styling: "Because she also did Sex and the City, which I know that a lot of people will be comparing the two shows, she knows what not to repeat. If anything, she's going to want to start something completely new because that's who she is."

Tango’s Take Yeah, we think CatWalkQueen.TV hit the nail on the head with referring to this as Sex And The City II. Premise: four successful New York City career women get together to gab about life, career and, yep, love. It sounds fairly similar to the Lipstick Jungle television program under development at NBC. It’s a bummer that Darren Star and Candace Bushnell couldn’t get together on this effort. Maybe recapture some of that magic, hmm? Anyway, we can imagine that if Darren Star were told that the show was similar to SATC, he would respond indignantly, ”No. No, it’s not. First off, all the characters are Samanthas. And secondly, our new redhead is fun and sexy and not a total wet blanket. And lastly, and you’re going to feel really silly, but Lucy Liu is Asian. Case closed. Next question.”
