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?

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