Cashmere Mafia: Heir to the Throne?

By Butterboom Writers  /  January 29, 2008

It’s like a G-rated Sex and the City, but it’ll do.


Missing Sex and the City like the rest of us? Well until the movie comes out in a few months, there is a new show called Cashmere Mafia starring Charlie’s Angels star Lucy Liu and 3 other power-ladies in a show that is basically a watered-down version of Sex and the City but this time its NOT on HBO and therefore not as funny or sexy, and is also 30 minutes longer.

We’ve been able to catch this show from a friend who gets them via specialized technical channels, and don’t know if it’s coming to Hong Kong as of this writing. But if you care to watch 9-minutes of it below:

The 4 main leads deal with love and life and business all in New York City (again?) at least the 4 characters are not exact mirrors of Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha; and in ways the cast are much better actors, but without the kinkiness you get from R-rated TV on HBO it just seems a bit too fake and perfect to bring down Sex and the City from the throne, but worth a watch if you are over 30.

More on the Cashmere Mafia here. And we’ll look at the new Lipstick Jungle when it debuts next week. And just so you know the difference between these 2 would-be Sex and the City shows. Cashmere Mafia is produced by Darren Star the producer of Sex and the City and Lipstick Jungle is created by Candace Bushnell the creator of Sex and the City.
