The CW Eyes Sex and the City Prequel Series

With their sharp fashion sense and busy social life in Manhattan, the young ladies from The CW’s Gossip Girl often evoke Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw. Now a teen version of Carrie may be joining the CW’s lineup.

I hear that the CW has emerged as the leading candidate for The Carrie Diaries, a TV series project based on Sex and the City author Candice Bushnell’s recent book about Carrie’s high school years. There are no deals in place and talks are in preliminary stages but I hear Gossip Girl executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are being courted to shepherd the project.
