The network is really hoping to make something of the Cashmere Mafia, using up their last in-the-can episode of Desperate Housewives to be lead in to the pilot. But then, Cashmere Mafia is one of the few things that they have more than a few episodes of on hand.
And the parallels to Housewives will be drawn, although at least the premiere doesn’t have the degree of humor, and structurally it’s more Sex and the City; a group of friends who have each other to call on, and who meet for meals in New York City.
None of it is too fascinating, but there’s good performances, good actors here. We’ve got Lucy Liu and Tom Everett Scott (presumably, that dar ambulance drama he was doing). But the writing is more silly than real.
Watchable, at least for the first one, but no must-see.
