The CW Picks Up Sex & The City Prequel!

Oh good! Because we couldn't help but wonder…

The official announcement came out of The CW yesterday that the network has given the greenlight to three new series. The first - and possibly the most-hyped - project is the long-awaited reboot of the Sex and The City franchise. A prequel to the series most love and adore, the show will be called Carrie Diaries after the Candace Bushnell novel of the same name and follow a young Bradshaw as she navigates the start of the senior year of high school.

Readers of the book know that Carrie actually started out in a little New England town before heading to the Big Apple, but in the series, the character will already be a Manhattanite attending a prestigious New York school. Sound familiar? As it should, considering that helming the project is none other than Gossip Girl team Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.

In addition to the SATC prequel, The CW has also picked up a modern remake of the popular 80s show Beauty and the Beast and an hour-long drama based on DC Comics' "Green Arrow" called Arrow. In other words, they are filling the voids left behind by Buffy and Smallville.

It all sounds good to us! Nothing we love more than some soapy, teenage drama shows! The more, the merrier!

    Only more proof Hollywood can't think of anything new. Tired of paying for TV when there is nothing BUT SHIT on. Already downgraded. Time to downgrade more.

    What the hell is up with this mess? Who wants to see a Beauty and the Beast remake? Didn't that movie, Beastly, with Vanessa Hudgens flop hard enough?

    I was excited about the prequel until I read that it was going to be changed so much from the book. Carrie attending a prestigious prep school in NYC for her senior changes the ENTIRE story. If Hollywood is going to make tv shows based on books that are popular, they should at least try to stick to some of the original story.
