On the OWN Network Tonight - Commander In Heels

I received an interesting piece of PR male this week and I thought it would be worth sharing with you.

Leslie Blodgett of Bare Escetuals

I was alerted that there will be a debut of a show profiling two major female executives called Commander in Heels (OWN Network, September 3rd at 10 pm ET). These executives are Leslie Blodgett, Executive Chairman of Bare Escentuals, and Dylan Lauren who is not only Ralph Lauren's daughter, but CEO of Dylan's Candy Bar (which I first heard about because it hosted Project Runway's unconventional Challenge this year).

I haven't yet tried Bare Escentual's, nor have I ventured over to Dylan's Candy Bar in Neiman Marcus on any of my trips to New York City, but I think this could be an interesting watch if you're looking into stories about successful woman in any industry.

Here's the pitch I received:
"Narrated by Oprah Winfrey,“Commander in Heels” (one-hour special) takes viewers inside the lives of two top female executives for a 360 view of how these high-powered women balance their personal and professional lives.  The program stars Dylan Lauren, the daughter of fashion icon Ralph Lauren, who made a name for herself as the CEO of the candy company and megastore, Dylan’s Candy Bar, and Leslie Blodgett, the Executive Chairman of one of the world’s top cosmetic companies, The program follows a busy week for both women.  Blodgett spearheads a new initiative where she will choose one of her own employees to be a part of their Fall 2012 photo campaign.  Lauren opens a new store in New York’s Bryant Park. "
Want to see a preview?

Anyway, I'm curious. I get a little "reality show" vibe from the preview, but it still could be a fun watch. I will probably check it out. What about you?
