ABOUT MANEATER

Beautiful, fashionable and fun, Clarissa Alpert (Chalke) is a shallow socialite whose speed dial is a veritable Rolodex of Hollywood power players. Staring her 32nd birthday directly in the eyes � though she will admit only to being 28 � the spoiled daddy's girl is in a panic because she is still single. Clarissa, though, always gets what she wants � even if he's Aaron Mason (Philip Winchester), the hottest new producer in town. With the help of her family and friends, Clarissa sets into motion an elaborate plan to lasso the dashing filmmaker who will, she hopes, be the man to put a ring on her finger.

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Maneater will be produced by Sony Pictures Television for Lifetime Television. Suzanne Martin (Hot Properties, Spellbound), Gigi Levangie Grazer (The Starter Wife) and Stephanie Davis for 3 Arts Entertainment (The Starter Wife, The 51st State) are executive producers of the teleplay by two-time Emmy� Award winner Martin.
