Girly Fall TV: Made in Jersey.

What’s weird is that with the amount of TV I watch, there is nothing that I watch on Friday. Friday nights are usually reserved for unwinding with a glass of wine on the couch and catching up on TV from the week, and on a good night, I’ll actually manage to stay up past 9.

But there is a new show that could break the Friday night dry spell: Made in Jersey. From what I can tell, it’s 70 percent Legally Blonde (LOVE), 20 percent My Cousin Vinny (YES!), eight percent Working Girl (OK) and like 2 percent The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Eh). But, it’s the 70 percent Legally Blonde that has me adding it to my DVR!

Made in Jersey Martina Garetti Janet Montgomery

Martina Garetti (played by Janet Montgomery, a Brit with a Jersey accent) is an ambitious, street smart, working-class lawyer, who snags a position at a prestigious Manhattan law firm. She seems to have more in common with her clients than her co-workers. She’s all big hair, stiletto’s and red lips. A stark contrast to her sleek, uptight, black-suited colleagues. It seems as though she’ll be solving crimes Elle-Woods-style, like based on perms, endorphins, liposuction and gay pool boys. Kyle MacLachlan (of Sex & the City fame) also stars as firm founder Donovan Stark, who is intrigued by Marina’s accent. And her insights.

Now…“Imagine you’re a deer. You’re prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water… BAM! A f***ing bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?” Sorry, had to throw that in there. So, anyone else looking forward to this one?
