Rich spoiled girls learn what is truly important Material Girls: A journey of self discovery



Two wealthy sisters, both heiresses to their family's cosmetics fortune, are given a wake-up call when a scandal and ensuing investigation strip them of their wealth.

Material Girls is a teen comedy that centers around Ava and Tanzie Marchetta who are rich, spoiled sisters. Their late father founded a cosmetics empire, allowing them to live a dream life complete with a Los Angeles mansion, hot car, endless new clothes, and their every desire fulfilled.

Ava, the shallow older sister, is newly engaged to a B-list television star, and Tanzie is busy completing college applications so she can follow in her father's footsteps creating healthy new skin products.

Since their father's death, his best friend, Tom Katzenback, has run the company, while the girls have remained the face of Marchetta Cosmetics, paying little attention to the details, and just popping into the office occasionally to say hello or make a decision about a charitable contribution.

Understandably, the sisters are shocked when Tom tells them that the company is failing and that they should consider an offer from their father's arch enemy, Fabielle.

Things really hit rock bottom when a scandal further rocks the company, the girls find themselves destitute, and their father's reputation is run through the mud.

Abandoned by their fabulous friends and left with no corporate credit cards and no place to go, these girls have two choices: get jobs or find a way to clear their father's good name and save Marchetta Cosmetics.

What will they choose? Just hold on to your seats and watch.
