Carrie Bradshaw and Crew Coming to the CW

According to an update from Deadline Hollywood the rumors of a prequel to Sex in the City have not just been a bunch of wishful thinking by Carrie’s diehard fans. Candace Bushnell’s The Carrie Diaries is being made into a TV show at CW and former Sex and the City writer Amy Harris is already on-board along with the producers of Gossip Girl.

The Carrie Diaries was published by Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell in 2010 and is the coming of age story of everybody’s favorite fictional New York columnist Carrie Bradshaw. Bushnell’s book deals with Carrie’s evolution from a small town girl dreaming of the big city, to the sexy and savvy New York girl that millions of fans have come to look to for tips on style and love. The story features Carrie’s rise from novice writer to well known columnist and introduces readers to the origins of her friendships with Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.

With the lack luster performance of the Sex and the City movies there is at least a portion of the fan base that would rather if Hollywood just left Carrie and co alone, but with Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage signed onto the project, along with Bushnell herself who will be taking an executive producer role; some fans out there are daring to hope that The Carrie Dairies can live up to the original TV show’s standards. Rumors have Gossip Girl’s own Blake Lively under consideration for the role of Samantha and Lizzie Olsen in the running to play a young Carrie Bradshaw, but as of now nothing has been confirmed or denied by the studio.

What worries us here at Promgirl News is not the resurrection of Carrie and her loveable crew, but rather the idea that any prequel to Sex in the City would probably need to be set in the 80’s, which wont go a long way to help The Carrie Diaries in becoming the same beacon of brilliant fashion that Sex in the City became known for.
