“Cashmere Mafia” struck by strike

Season Pass will continue to blog about the new scripted shows — for as long as they last. The writers strike has thrown the new season into turmoil. One longtime TV writer-producer told me last week that the strike will damage broadcast television as we know it… permanently.

Most shows have only enough completed scripts to carry them through about the next month. The L.A. Times website has a comprehensive and helpful list of where each show stands and we will keep you apprised as we learn more.

Cashmere_2The first casualty of midseason is ABC/Sony TV’s “Cashmere Mafia” (pictured left) which 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.
