Pilot Scoop: Mistresses

In case you feel like you don't have enough drama in your life, ABC is seeking to fill that void with Mistresses, an adaptation of the popular British series. The stateside cast includes Alyssa Milano and Lost's Yunjin Kim as part of a group of girlfriends whose love lives are active and sexy, but very complicated. I gave the pilot a watch to bring you my verdict on Mistresses and whether you should set your DVR to record this soapy new series.

  • What it's about: Savannah (Milano), April (Rochelle Aytes), Josslyn (Jes Macallan), and Karen (Kim) are a tight-knit group of friends, and they're each in a different transition in their love lives. Married Savannah is trying to get pregnant, widowed April is trying to date again, therapist Karen is getting over the death of her lover, and Jes is single and loving it — and she intends to stay that way. Each woman's situation is far from smooth sailing, though, and the pilot introduces you to a series of dilemmas, most of them related to infidelity, as you could guess from the title.
  • Where it works: Mistresses is addictive from the very first episode. It's packed full of juicy story lines and sexy situations, like Savannah's temptation to cheat on her husband with a sexy colleague, or a shocking revelation about April's past, and I found myself dying to see what happens next.
  • Where it doesn't: The cast still needs to find their chemistry. Aside from Savannah and Josslyn, who are sisters, it's not clear why these women are friends and spend time together. It's melodramatic to the extreme (though if you're into that, dive right in).
  • You might like this show if: You miss shows like Lipstick Jungle and Desperate Housewives.
  • When it's on: May on ABC.
