Sex and the City fans, are you looking forward to The Carrie Diaries on the CW? It follows Carrie Bradshaw as a coming-of-age teenager in Manhattan in the late 1980′s/early 1990′s asking her first questions about love, sex, friendship, and family. I’m going to enjoy watching it, as I was about the same age then, and it’s always fun to reminisce.
Carrie will be played by AnnaSophia Robb, and the pilot is executive produced by Amy B. Harris, Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Len Goldstein, Candace Bushnell and Miguel Arteta. Harris wrote the pilot, which is directed by Arteta. Harris says “the search for Carrie Bradshaw was an exciting adventure. Having been a part of the Sex and the City series, I felt such an honor and responsibility to the fans of the show to find someone who embodied the spirit of Manhattan’s favorite ‘It’ girl. When AnnaSophia Robb walked into the room, we knew we had found her. Her grace, intelligence, sense of fun and her empathetic nature make her the perfect girl to bring our young Carrie to life. The fact that she loves a gorgeous pair of heels doesn’t hurt either.”
Emmy®-winning costume designer Eric Daman (Sex and the City, Gossip Girl) said: “It’s a rare invitation to dress a character whose reputation truly precedes her. Having played a hand in designing for the Carrie we know and love, I am honored to be chosen to carry the torch — to illuminate the woman we know by discovering the young lady she was.”
No word yet on when the pilot will air, but we will be sure to keep you informed.
