Sex and the City fans, listen up!

The CW is in the processess of filming the prequel to the hit HBO comedy, dubbed The Carrie Diaries, and unlike the original–which was a little thin on diversity–this version includes some much-needed color.

Based on Candace Bushnell’s novel, The Carrie Diaries is set in the 80s and explains how Carrie Bradshaw came to be so fly.

British actress Freema Agyeman joins the cast of the CW show, which takes a look at Carrie Bradshaw’s early years in New York before the Manolos, Cosmos, and Mr. Big. Agyeman will play Larissa–a New York party girl and journalist–who shows Carrie the ropes.

The show recently began taping in New York and is due out this Fall.

Will you be tuning in?

  1. i am definitely looking forward to seeing this series. i enjoyed the books (esp. the last one) and satc. it would be great to see a diverse cast. hope they do a great job with the show. is the cw where ‘gossip girl’ plays because that use to be a favorite of mine as well.

    • I agree. I, too am looking forward to the series, but if the acting from the Freema is as bad as Jennifer Hudson was in the first SATC movie, it will be very hard to watch.

    I’ve loved Freema since Doctor Who (not to mention, she is easy on the eyes). Totally looking forward to seeing her on an American show!

    • I loved her on Doctor Who, she was my favorite Who Girls with the exception of Amy Pond.
