ABC’s remake of BBC One’s Mistresses will be arriving in the UK a little later than expected. After initially announcing that the 13 episode series would premiere on Friday June 14th at 9pm, TLC has announced that Mistresses will now not air until July. No firm date for the series’ premiere nor reason for the change was given.
Based on the British series of the same name, Mistresses follows 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.
