When Sophie receives a scholarship to attend a prestigious private school in New York, the girls convince their mother that they should all move to the city from their quiet hometown in New Mexico. Recently abandoned by her husband (who left his family for his secretary), 40-year-old Lynn Kerr is up for the challenge of not only becoming a single parent to Karen (18) and Sophie (16), but giving New York a try. Sophie quickly discovers that her new high school is not the easiest place to fit in. The school is ruled by a popular crowd of wealthy society kids known as Beautiful People, the BP's. Karen, an aspiring model, and Lynn, who gets a job in a dress shop, also find the city full of challenges, but with each other's support, all three women venture on a journey of self discovery.

The series will be executive produced by Michael Rauch, who wrote the pilot, and Paul Stupin ("Dawson's Creek"). BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE will be produced by Sony Pictures Television.
