  Prequel Series Being Developed


Carrie Bradshaw's senior year in high school could soon be the subject of a new series, as plans are under way to develop Candace Bushnell's prequel to Sex and the City for television, reports Deadline.

HBO owns the rights to Bushnell's The Carrie Diaries, a young adult novel that was published in 2010 and follows Bradshaw during her last year in a small-town high school, but the new series may be produced for the CW network. Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, producers of Gossip Girl, are being considered for the project.

Deadline reports that Darren Star, who created the HBO series, is not involved, nor is actress Sarah Jessica Parker, who starred in and produced the original series. Michael Patrick King, who also produced and wrote much of the series as well as directed the two movie spin-offs, has previously stated that he has no interest in the early years of the characters he helped make famous."I'm not working on any Sex and the City prequel at all," King said during the recent Television Critics Association panel. "I haven't read Candace's Bushnell's books. My Carrie Bradshaw started at 33 and I took her to 43 -- I don't even want to know who Carrie Bradshaw's parents are ... the idea of going backward, making her less evolved, is something that I can't even imagine doing."
