ABC’s ‘Cashmere Mafia’ hits a snag

Network holds show as a result of the strike

ABC made the nets’ first major strike-related scheduling change Monday morning, yanking “Cashmere Mafia” off the docket for now.

“Cashmere Mafia” was set to launch Nov. 27 at 10 p.m., behind the final episode of “Dancing with the Stars,” before moving to its normal Tuesday at 9 p.m. slot the following week. Instead, the show will now remain on the bench and serve as a utility player in case ABC needs more scripted originals later in the season.

To replace the “Mafia” hole, ABC will now bump the two-hour “Dancing With the Stars” finale to 9 p.m. At 8, Alphabet will run the holiday perennial “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

Specials are on tap to fill the Tuesday 9 p.m. slot in future weeks for the time being.

From Sony Pictures TV, “Cashmere Mafia” stars Lucy Liu, Frances O’Connor, Miranda Otto and Bonnie Somerville as successful, driven women in New York City. Darren Star, Kevin Wade, Jeff Rake, Gail Katz and Michael Pressman are exec producers.

NBC still has the similarly themed “Lipstick Jungle” on tap; “Mafia’s” scheduling change now means the battle resumes to see which network gets their project on air first.
