Lipstick Jungle is an American comedy-drama television series created by DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler for NBC Universal Television Studio (now Universal Media Studios). The hour-long series was based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Candace Bushnell, who also served as executive producer alongside showrunner/head writer Oliver Goldstick. The pilot was directed by Gary Winick.

However, the show underwent significant changes with all the aforementioned cast being replaced and with executive producers DeAnn Heline and Eileen Heisler, writers Rand Ravich and Jill Gordon and director Nigel Cole all fired.

The show premiered on February 7, 2008 as a mid-season replacement taking over ER's spot at 10:00 pm Eastern/9:00 pm Central. The series was slated to have 13 episodes per season. However, due to the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, only seven episodes were originally produced for the first season. The first season also competed indirectly with ABC's Cashmere Mafia, created by Bushnell's former creative partner from Sex and the City, Darren Star.

On February 24, 2008, NBC ordered six additional scripts of Lipstick Jungle. On April 2, 2008, NBC renewed Lipstick Jungle for a second season when they announced their Fall 2008 lineup. The second season premiered on September 24, airing at 10:00 pm Eastern/9:00 pm Central on Wednesdays. One month later, NBC announced that Lipstick Jungle would move to Fridays at 10:00 pm Eastern/9:00 pm Central effective October 31, 2008.

On November 13, 2008, rumors emerged that NBC would cancel the show due to low ratings but it was unclear if the remaining episodes would be aired in the current time slot. On November 21, 2008, NBC moved Lipstick Jungle to Fridays at an hour earlier 9:00 pm Eastern/8:00 pm Central beginning December 5, for the remainder of the season.

On January 9, 2009, the last produced episode of Lipstick Jungle aired, and it was advertised as the season finale. On January 15, 2009, it was announced the show was not yet canceled and could be brought back for episodes based on how the new pilots were received. On January 27, 2009, NBC announced that the show would get the "Friday Night Lights Treatment" implying that the show will return on another of NBC Universal's networks for a third season and then replay on NBC midseason.

On February 25, 2009, the future of Lipstick Jungle was once again put in limbo when it was announced that Lindsay Price was cast in the pilot for ABC's new drama Eastwick. However, had Lipstick Jungle received an official third season pick-up from NBC, Price would have pulled out of Eastwick in order to fulfill her contractual obligation to Lipstick Jungle. On March 28, 2009, Entertainment Weekly reported that the show was officially canceled.


Lipstick Jungle is a dramedy following the professional and personal lives of three best friends, all of whom are top professionals in their respective careers. Victory Ford (Price) is a fashion designer, Nico Reilly (Raver) is the editor-in-chief of Bonfire Magazine, and Wendy Healy (Shields) is the former president of Parador Pictures, currently producing independently. These three powerful women are always there to support one another and navigate the crazy, romantic, and sometimes scary world that is New York City.
