NBC Replenishes Lipstick

NBC has applied more Lipstick Jungle, ordering six more episode scripts, according to Variety. The show’s ratings are catching those coveted 18-34 slot among women, apparently. Maybe it’s hitting a note among those women that Cashmere Mafia was too corny to reach (the show was recently axed from ABC’s line-up). In Sara Vilkomerson’s Observer article on Lipstick Jungle, star Brooke Shields discussed how the show tackles real women’s issues. “I like that it’s not only about the happily ever after,” Ms. Shields told the Observer. “What I love about these women is that the goal is not finding the man and having that be the only type of happiness. We spend so much of our younger years thinking that’s what you have to get: you have to get the relationship, you have to get the family. … Now when you’re actually in it, when you get what you wished for, how do you spend your days in it?”
