Nina Garcia fans who are missing her on Project Runway will like this new series, which follows 3 new interns starting their jobs at Marie Claire magazine, the same week that Nina starts her new position there as Fashion Director.
The show premiered Sunday March 1st at 8PM ET, and epsiodes are rerun throughout the week.

I wasn't thrilled with the first episode, mostly because the whole thing is so obviously manufactured. There have already been stories in the papers saying that the interns were hired to be on the show more than to actually end up with jobs at the magazine. Also, the interns all live together in this huge, incredibly decorated multi-bedroom apartment in Manhattan, while real interns struggle to make the rent for their tiny ratholes, and eat Ramen Noodles to avoid starvation.
I don't know if Nina is in every episode; the editor-in-chief and a few other editors seem to be more of the focus in terms of working directly with the interns. And of course, all 3 girls are catty drama queens who don't get along. One even has a tiny dog like Elle Woods from Legally Blond.
Honestly, I don't care about any of the interns or what happens to them. THey seem like a sitcom that's going on in the middle of a magazine office. I hope things don't get too far off-the-chart silly, and we get to see an actual behind-the-scenes look at what people like Nina do all day.
