‘Sex and the City’ Prequel Headed to the CW?

Sex and the City Carrie BradshawWhat’s something this world definitely needs more of? Sex and the City! Right? Well, fans may not be clamoring for more after that last film sequel, but before the groaning commences, hear us out. The CW is reportedly the leading candidate to nab rights to Sex and The City author Candice Bushnell’s prequel series, The Carrie Diaries. While the missing Bradshaw moniker evokes more images of Sissy Spacek covered in blood than Ms. Bradshaw strolling down Fifth Avenue with a brand new Chanel bag, the idea is sound.

Fans always say they want to know where Carrie Bradshaw came from, how she became the fashion maven and wanton squealer we know and continue to put up with. The adult Bradshaw may have worn out her welcome in recent years, but they’re plenty of room — especially on a network like the CW — for delving into her adolescent past.

There’s nothing set in stone yet, but the show would follow Bradshaw in high school, the CW is the front-runner, and reports say that they’re eying the salacious drama dream team, Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz (Chuck, The OC, Gossip Girl), to lead the charge into tales of (presumably) what came before the sex and the city.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
