I read the book awhile ago and watched last night's pilot. It was just eh for me (both the book and TV show). I think Brooke Shields is totally miscast as Wendy. From the book I gathered that Wendy was kind of frumpy, something Brooke just isn't. I also thought the part of Victory was miscast -- that actress (can't think of her name) is too young for the part along with Andrew McCarthy as the multibillionaire.
