Synopsis

Four ambitious, sexy women who have been best friends since business school - Mia, Zoe, Juliet and Caitlin - try to have it all.

They aren't just powerful and intelligent as singular executive sensations in a man's world; they've bonded into a formidable unit - a female boys' club - 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?

Set in glamorous New York City where titans of media, finance, advertising and publishing reside, these driven women, who daily share their relatable and relevant problems dealing with both the boardroom and bedroom, combine their smarts, wit and humour to deal with personal and professional misfortunes and stunning triumphs.

Whether it's coping with rocky marriages, fending off scheming colleagues or just trying to find themselves in the midst of chaotic lives, these women use their valuable friendship to keep centered.

Ever since Mia Mason (Lucy Liu) was a young girl, all she ever wanted to do was win. Now as a sexy, competitive woman in the publishing field, that drive to be first has intensified, even pitting her against her fiancé for a key position.

What price will she have to pay to stay on top of the mountain?

Zoe Burden (Frances O'Connor), an investment banker with a handsome, loving, work-at-home architect husband, Eric (Julian Ovenden), and two small children, seems to be the prototype for the woman who has it all.

The couple face their 24-7 waltz of balancing full-time work and the challenge of being good parents with good humour, but the wheels may be coming off the cart, forcing Zoe to re-evaluate her life.

For Juliet Draper (Miranda Otto), the Chief Operating Officer of a major hotel chain, appearances come first - no matter what's going on behind closed doors.

And she will have to work overtime to keep up the façade of a perfect life with her philandering husband, Davis (Peter Hermann), and her rebellious 14-year-old daughter.

Juliet decides on a unique method of payback for Davis' indiscretions and simultaneously, in a bold move, must decide to drop her public image to step out in the world.

Caitlin Dowd (Bonnie Somerville) is a top marketing executive for a cosmetics firm. Like the other women, she is excelling professionally, but she's still discovering who she is personally and sexually.

She's worked hard to get ahead, but still counts on her street smarts to keep her there, while her sense of humour and a sweet wackiness makes her all the more attractive.

Cashmere Mafia stars Lucy Liu as Mia, Frances O'Connor as Zoe, Miranda Otto as Juliet, Bonnie Somerville as Caitlin, Peter Hermann as Davis and Julian Ovenden as Eric.
