VIBE – Christmas Day, Thursday 25 December, 8.30pm

Raised by their aunts, sisters Sally and Gillian Owens have grown up with a unique and powerful magic heritage. But the invocation of the Owens’ sorcery also carries a price – some call it a curse: the men they fall in love with are doomed to an untimely death. When Gillian meets a malevolent drifter, she unwittingly sets off a chain of explosive events that brings police officer Gary Hallet onto the family porch and into Sally’s heart, while releasing a swarm of supernatural forces that threatens the lives of all the Owens women.

Starring Sandra Bullock (Miss Congeniality) and Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge!), Dianne Wiest (Edward Scissorhands), Stockard Channing (The First Wives Club), Aiden Quinn (Legends Of The Fall) and Goran Visnjic (ER).

In the superficial world of high fashion, image is everything. Styles come and go, and the only constants are the super-thin beauties who wear them. How can an ordinary girl – a slightly plump plain-Jane from Queens – possibly fit in?

If you took a moment to get to know Betty Suarez (America Fererra in her Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning role), you’d see how sweet, intelligent and hard-working she is. But few people do, because in the world of high fashion Betty is the oversized peg in the petite round hole. When publishing mogul Bradford Meade (Kiwi Alan Dale) hands the reigns of Mode, the bible of the fashion industry, over to this son, Daniel (Eric Mabius, The L Word), he specifically hires Betty as his son’s new assistant – mostly because she’s the only woman in NYC Daniel won’t sleep with. Neither of them really knows the ins and outs of the fashion world, but the two are a formidable team against those who will do anything to see them fall.

And they really are swimming with the sharks. Diva fashionista Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams in her double Emmy nominated role) is incensed that Bradford Meade passed her over and promoted Daniel to the coveted job after the mysterious death (or was it?) of Mode’s legendary editress. Wilhelmina, along with toadying assistant Marc and scheming receptionist Amanda, are out to sabotage Daniel and Betty any chance they get.
