First Look: The Starter Wife, The Series

As Fall gets closer, I'm finding myself looking more and more forward to watching more of The Starter Wife, USA's 2007 miniseries that's now getting another shot on TV as a regular series. They've already made a few changes that I can fully support (giving Debra Messing's character, Molly, a new love interest who is definitely not Sam the homeless guy, for one), and some of the things I liked most about the mini — including Judy Davis as the acerbic Joan — are staying put.

We got to see a couple of clips at the TCA press tour, including one funny moment where Molly's having a crisis about being a writer (Joan suggests Molly would be awesome at collecting urine samples). I don't think that particular scene has turned up online yet, but I caught a promo with some new footage while watching the Olympics the other day, and it still gave me a good feeling about the series. It is weird not to see Peter Jacobson as Kenny Kagan, but I'm liking the addition of Hart Bochner a lot.

How are you feeling about this miniseries-turned-real-series at this point? To check out the clips, just

fleurfairy — me too! The producers actually talked about that at TCA — Miranda was still on Cashmere Mafia when they started the series, so they couldn't get her. But they really want her, and they didn't want to recast Cricket, so they said they've sort of "frozen" the character and if the show comes back again, maybe she'll be able to come with it.
