Moore is more for Lipstick

Who can turn the world on with her smile? Why it's Mary Tyler Moore and she's doing just that on "Lipstick Jungle."

Moore is more for LipstickI love it when the old guard mixes with the new talent on TV and this is one of the biggest. Television icon and seven-time Emmy Award winner Mary Tyler Moore will guest-star on NBC's drama "Lipstick Jungle" (Wednesdays, 10-11 p.m. ET) in a multi-episode arc starting in the season premiere on Wednesday, September 24.

Moore will play Joyce, a retired high-powered exec who forces Wendy (Brooke Shields), her studio-head daughter, to re-evaluate the work vs. family dilemma. Having blazed a trail for working women back in the 1970s and 1980s, Joyce challenges Wendy's idealistic notion of "having it all" -- leaving her overachieving daughter in a tailspin.

"I'm fortunate to have had a front row seat to the evolution of working women on television," said Moore. "It's been great fun to watch the strong female characters of 'Lipstick Jungle' go at it week after week. I absolutely adore Brooke and I'm delighted to be a part of a show which is so well written."

I'm not a big fan of "Lipstick Jungle" but Mary Tyler Moore could be enough to get me to watch a few more episodes.
