via press release:

“Mistresses,” a provocative and thrilling drama about the scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of four girlfriends, each on her own path to self-discovery, premieres MONDAY,
(10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The drama is based on the hit UK television series of the same name.


In the premiere, “Pilot,” Savannah (“Savi”) is a successful career woman working toward the next phase in her life -- both professionally and personally -- bucking for partner at the law firm where she works while also trying to start a family with her husband, Harry. But when their fertility issues begin to take center stage, Savi finds herself attracted to her flirtatious colleague, Dominic. Savi’s free-spirited and capricious baby sister, Josslyn, couldn’t be more different, living single, serial dating and partying. A real estate agent, Josslyn has no interest in a committed, long-term relationship.


Their common best friend, April, is a recent widow and mother of a ten-year-old daughter. After she receives her late husband’s lucrative life insurance check, she begins getting prank phone calls and tells her closest girlfriends that she’s convinced her husband is still alive. Another long-time friend, Karen, is a therapist with her own thriving practice, reconnecting with the girls after her involvement in a complicated relationship with a wealthy, married patient goes too far: She was having an affair with a terminally ill client to whom she had prescribed morphine.


These four friends find support and guidance with each other as they brave their turbulent journeys and life’s storms of excitement, secrecy and betrayal, all the while bound by the complex relationships they’ve created.


“Mistresses” stars Alyssa Milano as Savannah (“Savi”) Davis, Yunjin Kim as Karen Kim, Rochelle Aytes as April Malloy, Jes Macallan as Josslyn Carver, Brett Tucker as Harry Davis, Jason George as Dominic Taylor and Erik Stocklin as Sam Grey.


“Pilot” guest stars Penelope Ann Miller as Elizabeth Grey, John Schneider as Thomas Grey, Shannyn Sossamon as Alex, Cameron Bender as Richard, Kate Beahan as Miranda and Sunkrish Bala as Hamid.


“Pilot” teleplay was written by K.J. Steinberg.  Cherie Nowlan directed.


The series is executive-produced by Rina Mimoun (“Privileged,” “Gilmore Girls”), K.J. Steinberg (“Gossip Girl”), Robert Sertner (“Revenge,” “No Ordinary Family”) and Douglas Rae (“Wuthering Heights,” “Camelot,” “Mistresses,” “Raw,” “Meadowlands”). The series is from ABC Studios.


“Mistresses” is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format with 5.1 channel surround sound. A TV parental guideline will be assigned closer to the airdate.

    I have to wonder how this will do. Obviously it’s designed for a female audience. It has been mentioned in press releases since this was announced last year that this was going to be a summer series. Wonder how many people will assume it’s just a fall show that didn’t make it and is getting burned off.

    The ads look cheesy. But I do like Alyssa Milano. So I will give it a chance.

    This show will be a big hit just like Desperate Housewives. One million moms can say whatever s#!t they want to say about show but the truth remains that shows like this are fun to watch.this is the best summer show of 2013.one million moms were trying to get the client list cancelled but it turned out to be a big hit.this show is just great!!! I loved the british version but this american adaptation has made several changes to the storylines and is going to be perfect entertainment to those who may/may not have watched the uk version.

    This show is going to fail badly. It’ll be canceled.
