Prepare yourselves: the world might soon know what Carrie Bradshaw looked like in the ’80s.
After years of speculation on whether or not a Sex and the City prequel would come to be, the balls are finally rolling.
The CW, home to shows like Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie, has officially ordered a pilot for The Carrie Diaries, based on the novel by Candace Bushnell. As previously reported, HBO has the rights to the show, which has Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage–of the aforementioned CW shows (and The O.C.)–on board as executive producers. Amy Harris, who worked on HBO’s original SATC, wrote the pilot, Entertainment Weekly reports.
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
All in all, we can’t wait to see the clips from the pilot episode.
