"Lipstick Jungle": Season 2 Premieres 9/24
The winner in the battle of "Sex and the City" knock-offs, NBC's "Lipstick Jungle" is coming back for more steamy action on Wednesday, September 24 at 10/9c on NBC.
Ironically, Lucy Liu who lost the war of the suds with her ABC series "Cashmere Mafia" may get to strike back, as the show she joins this season, ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money," airs directly opposite season 2 of "Lipstick Jungle."
Of course, had last TV season not been so brutally impacted by the writers' strike, perhaps "Lipstick Jungle" would never even have gotten a second chance to capture ad-friendly female demos.
In other words, averaging 6.97 million viewers is nothing to write home about. But "Cashmere Mafia" did a little worse (6.13 million) and there were not enough new shows lined up for fall.
So, what's ahead for the ladies of "Lipstick Jungle"?
Mary Tyler Moore guest stars in the season premiere episode "Pandora's Box" as Wendy Healy's (Brooke Shields) mother; dreamboat Kirby Atwood (Robert Buckley) returns for more 6-pack action; and Rosie Perez ("Fearless") also guest stars.
Nico (Kim Raver) is haunted by her infidelity when Charles (Chris Cousins) gives her a photograph that Kirby (Robert Buckley) took of her during their affair. Overcome with guilt, she debates whether she should tell Charles the truth and decides to go to extreme measures to save her marriage.
Wendy (Brooke Shields) decides to cut back on her hours at the office and spend more time at home after she finds her under-age daughter, Maddie (Sarah Hyland), at a bar. Her transition into domestic life is not an easy one especially when her opinionated mother (Moore) unexpectedly comes to the city for a visit.
Finally, Victory (Lindsay Price) finds it difficult to avoid Joe (Andrew McCarthy) who is desperate to get her back. Trying to move on from their personal relationship, she hires a publicist Dahlia Morales (Perez) to help brand her business and find a retail space.
