Lipstick Jungle or Cashmere Mafia, which one will you be watching?
It looks like there is going to be an all out war for female viewers in TV land by the end of this year in the shape of Cashmere Mafia and Lipstick Jungle. You've seen the trailer for the Cashmere Mafia, now check out the Lipstick Jungle's attempt (above) to get you hooked. Then try and work out which show about stylish and successful women in New York will be your choice.
Truth be told there are subtle differences between the two. Cashmere Mafia seems a lot more drama based with some more substance to the story lines whereas Lipstick Jungle, which like Sex and the City was written by Candace Bushnell, has more laughs and tongue-in-cheek humour. Plus I love LPs tagline - "These women aren't looking for Mr Big. They are Mr Big".
So does Brooke Shields make you laugh out loud or are you Lucy Liu's number one fan? Is the writing of Candace Bushnell enough to win your vote or will you be following Patricia Field, the hired stylist on Cashmere Mafia?
Either way, both these shows are guaranteed to be that much needed replacement for SATC and who can complain about that?
