NEW LOVERS, NEW LIES, AND OLD SECRETS ON BBC AMERICA

- Hit drama series, Mistresses, continues with all-new U.S. premiere episodes �

Mistresses, the sophisticated drama about love, sex and contemporary relationships continues to entrance audiences and critics alike with its honest portrayal of the lives of four friends played by Sarah Parish, Sharon Small, Orla Brady and Shelley Conn. As the series segues from its first six episodes to its next six episodes, twelve months have elapsed and fans find the friends in various states of joy and pain. Struggling to learn from their past mistakes, Katie (Parish), Trudi (Small), Siobhan (Brady) and Jessica (Conn) face new dilemmas, though the root of their problems remains the same � men and sex. Mistresses Season one finale airs Friday, March 27, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT and Season two premieres Friday, April 3, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

After her married lover's death and her ill-advised affair with his son, Katie has sworn off men for good and is trying to make some changes in her life, starting with a new direction in her career. However, retraining at her local hospital throws her into the path of two gorgeous men: heart surgeon Dan (Mark Umbers), who appears to offer a chance of lasting stability and happiness, and Jack (Steven Brand), an old flame who is her new boss and married to Megan (Natasha Little).

Surviving the shock of her husband pretending to have perished in the 9/11 disaster, Trudi swaps her $2m compensation money for the arrest of her fraudulent ex-partner and family bliss with Richard. But the domestic harmony does not last long and she realizes that Richard may not quite be the man she thought he was.

It hasn't taken too long for party planner Jessica to rebound from her first bruising encounter with love. Dumped by her married girlfriend, Jessica is with a man who is her mirror image � Mark (Oliver Milburn). It is the perfect arrangement; they are both beautiful, love the high life, fancy each other like mad and have no time for monogamy. However, an open relationship might sound great on paper, but is Jessica's life as perfect as she makes out?

Siobhan faced the biggest dilemma of all. Finally pregnant after years of trying, her longed-for baby is not her husband Hari's but colleague Dominic's, with whom she had a passionate affair. Siobhan and Hari are trying to rebuild their marriage as Siobhan juggles first-time motherhood, her exacting career and permanent tension, and she is nursing a dark secret that could cost her everything.

So since when was love ever simple? With their friendship to hold them together, the four battle through love, lust, lies and infidelity.
