A week from tomorrow (Feb. 7), NBC debuts The Lipstick Jungle. Based on the novel by Candace Bushnell, it’s about a group of New York women who dress beautifully, go to glamorous Manhattan hot spots, and analyze their crazy mixed-up lives over lunches and drinks. Sound familiar? Wait, there ARE differences from the HBO series you may be thinking of. As the trailer puts it, these women, who are many rungs up their chosen career ladders, are “not LOOKING for Mr. Big. They ARE Mr. Big.” And, there’s only three of them (this being network television, there has to be time for commercials), played by Brooke Shields, Lindsay Price (24) and Kim Raver.

If this makes you nostalgic for the original quartet, they are reunited in Sex and the City: The Movie, scheduled for release on May 30. Mr. Big is definitely in the movie, played again by Chris Noth.
