Mistresses Preview: Trailer For ABC's Drama Starring Alyssa Milano

Among the dramas set to join ABC at some point during the 2012-2013 season is Mistresses, a female-focused series that follows a group of four women who are each dealing with their own personal issues. Alyssa Milano and Lost's Yunjin Kim are among the cast. More details and the trailer ahead!

Alyssa Milano returns to network TV in this primetime soap, which - as you may have guessed by the title - seems to be female focused, and follows a group of friends whose personal lives are full of drama, which could make for fun television.

Welcome to a provocative and thrilling drama about the scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of four girlfriends, each on her own path to self-discovery, as they brave the turbulent journey together.Meet Savi (Alyssa Milano), a successful career woman working toward the next phase in her life -- both professional and personal -- simultaneously bucking for partner at her law firm while she and her husband, Harry (Brett Tucker), try to start a family of their own. Savi's free-spirited and capricious baby sister, Josselyn (Jes Macallan), couldn't be more different - living single, serial dating and partying, and regularly leaning on her big sister along the way.Their common best friend, April (Rochelle Aytes), a recent widow and mother of two, is rebuilding her life after tragedy and learning to move forward, with the support and guidance of her closest girlfriends. And friend Karen (Yunjin Kim), a successful therapist with her own practice, reconnects with the girls after her involvement in a complicated relationship with a patient goes far too deep.

The jury's still out for me on this one. I don't dislike it, but there isn't really anything about the trailer that hooks me automatically. While I could see myself getting completely drawn in by the allure of scandal and drama, I could also see being indifferent toward it depending on where the story goes. So, I'll reserve judgment until I've seen the pilot.

We might see Mistresses on the schedule during Midseason 2013, ABC president Paul Lee has reportedly said they're aiming to push this one off for summer, which seems like a good plan for a show like this.

This poll is no longer available.
