Secret Obsessions

[via press release from MyNetworkTV]

�Secret Obsessions� delves deep into the glamorous, yet unscrupulous, world of the fashion industry and how greed, lust and blind ambition make or break careers, and hearts, in the business. �Secret Obsessions� will launch on Tuesday, September 5, 2006 on MyNetworkTV at 9:00pm (Eastern/Pacific)/8:00pm (Central).

This daily, one-hour drama stars iconic actress and internationally renowned sex symbol Bo Derek as Maria Zianni, a cutthroat fashion mogul who rules the fashion world and runs her company with an iron fist. Never one to take �no� for an answer, Maria spares no one, including her family, of her rage. Accustomed to receiving whatever she pleases, Maria is suddenly whirled into a life of uncertainty, blackmail and despair at the hands of a tangled love triangle that puts her life�s work in jeopardy. Natalie Martinez is Michelle Miller, an unfulfilled wife who forgoes her dream of becoming a fashion designer but puts herself first when she discovers that her husband Lance, played by Mike Begovich, has been cheating on her. Taylor Kinney portrays Maria�s son Paul Zianni, a talented aspiring artist who has lived in the shadow of his mother�s power but develops a new sense of purpose for his art after meeting Michelle. Donna Feldman plays Gloria, a sexy gold digger who gets what she wants and is having an affair with Lance. Nicole Pulliam is Nikki Clark, a high-power Zianni, Inc. supermodel afraid of losing her appeal who keeps a close eye on any up-and-coming models. �Secret Obsessions� also stars Joel Berti as William, a well educated, yet vindictive man that built his empire from scratch and uses his malevolence against Maria; and Garrett Swan plays Harold, while Tony Tripoli is Hans, Zianni Inc. designers who have had their share of success, but that luck is quickly fading.

Targeted to Adults 18-49, MyNetworkTV will provide broadcasters with operational flexibility through a seamless flow of original primetime programming and branded national marketing initiatives that allow stations to maintain and strengthen their localism.
