“Mistresses” is a new, scripted show that will premiere its first season on Monday, May 27 from 10-11pm. Starring Alyssa Milano, Yunjin Kim, Rochelle Aytes and Jes Macallan, this sexy (and sex-filled) program follows the lives of four female friends as they negotiate forbidden romances and life. “Mistresses” is based on a British series of the same name.

The two spring/summer shows will replace “Dancing with the Stars” and “Castle” when those two series end their season runs. Considering the subject matter of the premiering series, Monday nights will be either the best or the worst thing for women this summer.
