As a long-time fan of Sex and the City, I weeped when the series came to an end in 2004. So you can imagine how excited I am that another of Candace Bushnell’s books starring my favorite fashionista is headed to the small screen!
You won’t find Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis or Cynthia Nixon on set. The Carrie Diaries, set to premiere January 14th at 8pm on The CW, follows our girl Carrie during her senior year of high school during the early 1980′s. The series stars AnnaSophia Robb (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Soul Surfer) in the role made famous by SJP in the HBO series and co-stars Austin Butler (Vanessa Hudgens hottie boyfriend!), Katie Findlay, Ellen Wong, and Brendan Dooling.
I must admit, I was pretty worried about how much I would like The Carrie Diaries and seeing someone else as Carrie but after watching the pilot I am really excited to see how it all unfolds! The story is brought to life perfectly and really captures the essence of the 80′s. You also learn about how Carrie’s love affair with New York City first began!
If you loved Sex and the City, this is a must watch! Check out the previews below for a sneak peek into season one:
