Lipstick Jungle

Another programme that I am looking forward to seeing is Lipstick Jungle. This is yet another book adaptation which is written by Candace Bushnell, she who bought us Sex and the City - a programme that needs no introduction. Lipstick Jungle, like S&TC is set in NYC and chronicles the lives of a group of successful women who are friends but unlike S&TC the characters in this show are slightly older and hell of a lot more richer and instead of looking for Mr Big, they frankly are Mr Big. There is thriving fashion designer, Victory Ford, high powered movie exec, Wendy Healy and sassy magazine editor, Nico O'Neilly. These women are placed 8, 12, and 17 on The New York Post's list of "New York's 50 Most Powerful Women. I will admit that I have not been a fan of Bushnell's writing in the past, I thought the Sex and the City book was very poor and she only got lucky because of Darren Star's midas touch in producing the show. However she really redeems herself with this book and it really is a riveting read. Plus I love all the characters which is always a big bonus. The show is set to broadcast in the US in the new year and hopefully it should be picked up over here. Also do you remember when I was going on about Dallas and how it should be repeated? Well someone must have been reading this because the series is being show on UKTV Gold everyday at 5.00pm and if you miss it you can catch the omnibus on Saturday and Sunday mornings. I knew there was a God.
