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.

MyNetworkTV is the new primetime general entertainment broadcast television network scheduled to launch Tuesday, September 5th, 2006. 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.

Every Saturday, re-cap episodes highlighting the two programs� previous week�s storylines will air. �Desire,� scheduled to air at 8:00pm (Eastern/Pacific)/7:00pm (Central), follows two close brothers on the run from the mafia who both fall in love with, and then passionately battle for, the same woman.
