‘The Carries Diaries’ Series Confirmed

The rumors about a Sex and the City prequel have been confirmed: CW will adapt Candace Bushnell‘s The Carrie Diaries. The original HBO series’ writer Amy B. Harris has signed up to work on the project.

Past articles reported that producer Michael Patrick King, lead actress Sarah Jessica Parker and co-star Kristin Davis have protested about the project. Judging by the fan reaction on the Twittersphere, there are many skeptics. Who do you want to play young Carrie Bradshaw?

Here’s more from the article: “The first book in Bushnell’s origin story was published last year and, like Sex and the City, is told from Carrie’s point of view. It follows the aspiring writer through her relationship with Sebastian Kydd and rivalry with popular girl Donna LaDonna. The second novel in the series, Summer and the City: A Carrie Diaries Book, was published in April and revolves around Carrie’s first trip to New York. Both books have been big sellers, with Bushnell signing on this summer to pen two additional installments.”
