Let's hear if for the girls!
5 November 2004 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Eye-popping for TV to say the least. Put the blame on the genes or the panties? Tommie(Ellen Burstyn)is an old time New Orleans prostitute who answers the phone and keeps the books for the family business...a very popular two story brothel on Canal Street in The Big Easy. The business is owned and operated by Tommie's daughter, Jeanette(Annabella Sciorra). Jeanette's daughter, Monica(Dominigue Swain), has learned and enjoyed the tricks of the trade taught her by her mother and grandmother; but wants to break the cycle and get away from the trade for the sake of her own baby daughter. But with business, pleasure and family all rolled into one, it is a very difficult task to break away from a destiny so pre-designed.

One of their most valued clients, a well known local doctor(Adrian Roberts), is arrested for insurance fraud and wants to "sell out" the ladies to the FBI in hopes of beating the rap. The Feds arrest the women on charges of racketeering and drug trafficking. But a clever scheme involving Tommie's little black book containing high profile clients keeps the women from the big lock up. Also in the cast are: Anthony Michael Frederick, Douglas M. Griffin, Sewell Whitney and Russ Comegys. Pretty bold for prime time network TV. Go into this with both eyes wide open.
