Another reason Lipstick Jungle is doomed

Lipstick JungleOne of the stage managers from the crew of Lipstick Jungle has been hocking their props on eBay. As with its Sex and the City predecessor, they use actual suits and bags from Prada, Gucci, and all sorts of prominent name brands. I see them being sold on street corners in NYC all the time. They stuff goes for practically the same street value as crack.

That is one of the problems with a busy set. You never know who is bringing what to where and for what purpose. It's even worse for Lipstick Jungle since the props wouldn't look out-of-place being sold on the eBay alongside all the other resellers of various designer name brands. At least with certain shows like Star Trek, you could tell where the stolen props came from.

The lesson is this: if you are going to steal from a television production, make sure to skip the stuff that is crystal-encrusted and unique. Still, you have to wonder if the reason the man sold the props in the first place is that the show won't be needing them anymore due to imminent cancellation.

I'm not sure how much the actual content of the ad will work, unless viewers believe that a nice new shirt will give you six pack abs. But I think it reminds people of the Van Huesen brand at least. Besides, how many other men's clothing companies are advertising on the Super Bowl.
