Production has begun in New York on “Cashmere Mafia,” ABC’s highly anticipated new drama which will premiere with a special preview on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) and have its regular time period premiere on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET).
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 a man’s world; they’ve bonded into a formidable unit – a female “boys’ club” -- 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?
Set in glamorous New York City, where titans of media, finance, advertising and publishing reside, these driven women, who daily share their relatable and relevant problems dealing with both the boardroom and bedroom, combine their smarts, wit and humor to deal with personal and professional misfortunes and stunning triumphs. Whether it’s coping with rocky marriages, fending off scheming colleagues or just trying to find themselves in the midst of chaotic lives, these compelling women use their valuable friendship to keep centered.
