Three TV drama pilots using Sex guide

ABC and NBC have picked up three one-hour pilots that all bear some of the DNA of HBO's Sex and the City.

ABC has ordered Cashmere Mafia, from Sex creator Darren Star and Working Girl writer Kevin Wade, which is described as "the next generation of Sex and the City." It has also picked up Women's Murder Club, which is described as "CSI meets Sex and the City."

And NBC has given the green light to Lipstick Jungle, a comedy-drama based on Sex author Candace Bushnell's follow-up to her smashing best-seller.

Cashmere Mafia follows four successful female executives, friends since college, who rely on each other as they juggle the demands of career, family, hard choices, and high ambitions in New York City.

Women's Murder Club is based on James Patterson's series of mystery books (1st to Die, 2nd Chance, 3rd Degree, 4th of July and The 5th Horseman) about four girlfriends--a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an up-and-coming newspaper reporter, and a young assistant district attorney--who solve tough murder cases.

Lipstick Jungle revolves around three powerful New York businesswomen who will do anything to get ahead. Gina Gershon was cast as one of the three leads in an earlier attempt to develop Lipstick, but it is not clear if she will stay on.

Additionally, NBC has ordered a female-centered drama pilot with comedic elements about an ensemble of police officers. The untitled project comes from House creator David Shore and House writer Peter Blake.

I loved all 5 books from James Patterson, I will be looking for the Women's murder club.

I wonder who will play the rolls.

As for Lipstick well I also enjoyed the first book and will now go get Lipstick Jungle.
