When a girl loved Sex And The City, and has seen all the seasons again and again, but is just dying for something new, what is she to do?
Turns out she gets to fret no more because there’s a new small screen project in the works based on Candace Bushnell’s (She’s the original author of the books the SATC series is based on) new book, Is There Still Sex In The City?
According to Hollywood Reporter, this new series will be a little different though, because it’s based on sex, dating, and single life in New York after fifty.
Wow, would Carrie be over fifty now? It’s hard to believe it’s been that long!
When asked about her series, Bushnell had this to say, “It didn’t used to be this way. At one time, fifty-something meant the beginning of retirement — working less, spending more time on your hobbies, with your friends, who like you were sliding into a more leisurely lifestyle. In short, retirement-age folks weren’t meant to do much of anything but get older and a bit heavier. They weren’t expected to exercise, start new business ventures, move to a different state, have casual sex with strangers, and start all over again. But this is exactly what the lives of a lot of fifty- and sixty-something women look like today, and I’m thrilled to be reflecting the rich, complexity of their reality on the page and now on the screen.”
Eep! You know this show is going to be all kinds of juicy, and as a 40-something myself, it’s nice to see us middle aged women still being discussed as sexy!
Paramount television has secured the rights to this show. Nicole Clemens, president of Paramount had this to say, “The original Sex and the City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included. We’re thrilled to be able to continue that conversation from the underrepresented point of view of women in their 50s and answer the question with, ‘Yes! There is more sex in the city!'”
I mean, I am fine with more sex, but can we also get more Aidan and less Mr. Big?
Am I the only one who thought Carrie Bradshaw made the wrong choice? Aidan was artistic, lovely and a man who knew her soul. Mr. Big was stuffy, boring, and just not right for Carrie.
Besides I will never ever forgive him for leaving her at the altar.
But man did she do some damage with those flowers.
