Can you imagine Carrie Bradshaw in high school? You may not have to ‘cuz according to multiple reports, The CW network has bought The Carrie Diaries’ project – a Sex and The City prequel based on Candace Bushnell’s book about Carrie’s time as a high school prep. The show is being developed by Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and according to Entertainment Weekly, the series could end up on the air by next fall. Warner Bros. TV, which owns the rights to the The Carrie Diaries, is reportedly working out a deal that would allow the series to use characters and elements from the hit HBO series. Samantha Jones is featured in Bushnell’s book, but Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York – along with the rest of Carrie’s circle of friends – are not. As of now, HBO series creator Darren Star and Sarah Jessica Parker are not attached to the project and, of course, reps for The CW and Warner Bros. are declining to comment on the matter.
But SJP is giving her blessing to the younger “Carrie”. Access Hollywood caught up with her at the premiere of her new film, I Don’t Know How She Does It (hits theaters this Friday), in New York City where she shared her thoughts on reports that The Carrie Diaries is coming to The CW. “I think it’s wonderful that people want to hear Carrie’s story, and I understand,” the actress told Access. “Peter Roth, [President of Warner Bros. TV,] is smart and wonderful and funny and I’m sure it will be in excellent hands.” Here, the gracious SJP is out and about in usual diva-style form in these glam Christian Dior shades, available in four frame hues. –rpuccia
