Sex and the City prequel moving ahead

Last month it was rumoured a prequel to Sex and the Citybased on show creator and author Candace Bushnell’s book The Carrie Diaries – would be headed to TV screens. The rumour has now become fact.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, teen-oriented network CW has given the green light to the project. Gossip Girls Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage will produce, while former Sex and the City writer Amy B. Harris is expected to serve as show runner.

The Carrie Diaries follows Carrie Bradshaw during her formative years; specifically, as a high schooler in the 1980s.

THR note that HBO – who aired the original trailblazing series in the late 1990s and early 2000s – still own the rights to the series. Helpfully, the CW are “corporate cousins” with the cable giant.

SATC show-runner and film director Michael Patrick King has previously stated that he was not interested in seeing a teenage Carrie. Stars Sarah Jessica Parker (who played Bradshaw) and Kristin Davis (whose character, Charlotte, is not featured in the prequel books) have similarly objected to the prequel prospect, holding out hope for a third movie instead.

Discuss: But what say you?
