“I’m an actor who just wants to work with the best people that I can get my hands on,” says Jason George.
And when that’s the goal, man, has he ever picked the right show: “Mistresses,” a summer drama that premieres June 3 on ABC.
On “Mistresses,” there is nothing hands don’t get onto. The first episode has more skin and seduction than a Holly Madison promotional video — before the opening credits.
It’s not explicit like cable. But ABC’s publicity campaign leaves little doubt the network sees “Mistresses” as the TV equivalent of an irresistible steamy summer beach read, with on-air trailers that feature everything but Fabio. Based on a popular 2008-2010 British series, “Mistresses” follows four women through their ill-advised relationships with men of varying quality.
Alyssa Milano plays Savannah Davis, an ambitious married attorney. Savi and her husband are trying to have a baby and it seems that he’s the problem, which of course makes him turn on her, which of course makes her turn to Dominic, her handsome colleague. Played by Jason George.
Dominic and Savannah set a world land speed record for going from hands off to nothing on.
Jes Macallan plays Joss Carver, Savi’s free-spirited younger sister. Joss will have sex with anyone, anytime, anywhere. This occasionally creates problems, but at least when the others take their inevitable guilt trips, she can be their designated driver.
