They aren't just powerful and intelligent as singular executive sensations in today's corporate battlezones; they've bonded into a formidable unit � a "Cashmere Mafia" -- to support and counsel each other through good times and bad. How better to climb up the corporate ladder than with your buddies at your side? Whether it's coping with rocky marriages, fending off scheming colleagues or just trying to find themselves in the midst of their chaotic lives, these compelling women use their valuable friendship to keep centered, on a special premiere of "Cashmere Mafia," SUNDAY, JANUARY 6 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET), followed by its regular time period premiere which remains on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Just engaged, the two face off in a cut-throat, "survivor-style" competition in order to determine which of them will be promoted to U.S. Group Publisher at Barnstead Media Group. A smitten Caitlin must face up to the strange but wonderful feelings she is encountering with a new love interest at the office. Meanwhile, Juliet decides on a unique method of payback for her husband Davis' indiscretions and simultaneously, in a bold move, must decide whether to drop her public image to step out in the world. And Zoe and her husband, Eric, are on another 24/7 whirl of balancing their full-time careers and the challenge of being good parents to two small children -- all with good humor. But how long will it be before the wheels come off the cart?
