Variety says ABC made the network’s first major strike-related scheduling change Monday morning, yanking “Cashmere Mafia” off the schedule for now.
“Cashmere Mafia” was set to launch Nov. 27 at 10 p.m., after the final episode of “Dancing with the Stars,” before moving to its normal Tuesday at 9 p.m. slot the following week. Instead, the show will now remain on the bench and be used if ABC needs more scripted originals later in the season.
To replace the “Mafia” hole, ABC will now bump the two-hour “Dancing With the Stars” finale to 9 p.m. At 8, the network will run the holiday perennial “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
From Sony Pictures TV, “Cashmere Mafia” stars Lucy Liu, Frances O’Connor, Miranda Otto and Bonnie Somerville as successful, driven women in New York City. Darren Star, Kevin Wade, Jeff Rake, Gail Katz and Michael Pressman are executive producers.
