Will the next Carrie Bradshaw please stand up?

From the creator of Sex and the City, Darren Star, comes Cashmere Mafia, a one-hour drama revolves around the lives of 4 glamorous career women which is expected to reign the success of its predecessor. I have high hope for Lucy Liu in the leading role to be the next female TV icon. She's so freaking crazy/sexy/cool!

According to Darren, Cashmere Mafia will have a more mature spin than SATC with a focus on the women's careers (yeah, right, careers with sex in office).

From the preview clip, I adore quirky Lucy Liu and lovely Frances O'Connor. Not that impressed with Miranda Otto so I guess she will be the mature one of the group. Bonnie Somerville is a bit plain, probably a blah blond. Funnily, this group also has women of 3 different hair colours: brunette, blond, redhead, just like SATC.

NBC's highly anticipated Lipstick Jungle, adapted from the novel of the same title by Candace Bushnell, will rival with Cashmere Mafia this Fall season. According to Slate Magazine, "if the [preview] clip is at all representative, the show will consist of Brooke Shields and her clique of high-powered female friends walking in uncomfortable shoes, but also sitting down (either on sofas or behind desks), hooking up, and dropping brand names." Ha! Brooke Shields, in the leading role, is also generating buzz to be the new Bradshaw. I haven't seen any movie in which Brooke is in and all I know is that she got into a bitch fight with Tom Cruise over the use of therapy and drugs to cure postpartum depression. Whatever, Lucy had me at "Ní hảo".

So bring on the star deathmatch: Lucy Liu vs Brooke Shields
TV deathmatch: Cashmere Mafia vs Lipstick Jungle
& drama queen deathmatch: Darren Star vs Candace Bushnell
