A Bold Type 

Review of "The Bold Type" 7/15/17 by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays, 9:00pm ET/PT

This is a show about young women working at a "Cosmo" type of magazine called Scarlet. The focus is on three young women. One (Jane) has just been promoted to writer, one is an assistant (Sutton) and one is in charge of the magazine's social media (Kat). Jane grew up without a mom, and she's a bit insecure about her big new job. Sutton is in love with an executive at the company, Richard. Kat is a bit headstrong and impetutous. They worship the magazine's editor, Jacqueline.

The show is loosely based on the life of former Cosmo editor Joanna Coles, who's also executive producer. At first I thought it was kind of boring and trying too hard to be like "Sex and the City." However, once I got into it, I saw that I was wrong and that it has a lot more substance than that show. The writers make you care about the characters. They're not just cardboard cutouts of what Hollywood thinks young women might be. They're very real. There aren't too many shows on TV today that you can say that about.


“The Bold Type” reveals a glimpse into the outrageous lives and loves of those responsible for the global women’s magazine, “Scarlet.” The rising generation of Scarlet women leans on one another as they find their own voices in a sea of intimidating leaders. Together they explore sexuality, identity, love and fashion. The series stars Katie Stevens, Aisha Dee, Meghann Fahy, Sam Page, Matt Ward and Melora Hardin as Jacqueline, editor in chief of Scarlet Magazine. The series has started production in Montreal, Canada. “The Bold Type” is executive produced by Sarah Watson, David Bernad, Ruben Fleischer, Victor Nelli Jr. and Joanna Coles. Holly Whidden and Matt McGuinness are co-executive producers.
