is fed up with reporters asking her if her new TV drama Cashmere Mafia
is in direct competition with upcoming show Lipstick Jungle
- just because both programs star women and share links to Sex And The City
Liu's Cashmere Mafia
is the new series from Sex And The City
creator Darren Star, and follows four female executives struggling to balance careers with family in New York City.
, which stars Brooke Shields
, Kim Raver
and Lindsay Price
and is also set in New York, is an adaptation of Sex And The City
writer Candace Bushnell's book of the same name.
But Liu insists there is plenty of room on television for shows starring women - and that journalists would never ask male actors if their shows share a rivalry with other programs starring men.
She says, "It's such a strange question. People ask, 'What do you think of these shows coming up, and is it your competition?' No. Why does it have to be your competition? Why can't there always be shows about women? No one asks a man if it's difficult to have another show about men."
