via press note:
The first image from The CW’s new pilot THE CARRIE DIARIES has been released. The show stars AnnaSophia Robb as a young Carrie Bradshaw coming of age in the 1980s, asking her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan.
- THE CARRIE DIARIES writer/executive producer Amy B. Harris said: “The search for Carrie Bradshaw was an exciting adventure. Having been a part of the Sex and the City series, I felt such an honor and responsibility to the fans of the show to find someone who embodied the spirit of Manhattan’s favorite ‘It’ girl. When AnnaSophia Robb walked into the room, we knew we had found her. Her grace, intelligence, sense of fun and her empathetic nature make her the perfect girl to bring our young Carrie to life. The fact that she loves a gorgeous pair of heels doesn’t hurt either.”
- Emmy®-winning costume designer Eric Daman (Sex and the City, Gossip Girl) said: “It’s a rare invitation to dress a character whose reputation truly precedes her. Having played a hand in designing for the Carrie we know and love, I am honored to be chosen to carry the torch — to illuminate the woman we know by discovering the young lady she was.”
THE CARRIE DIARIES pilot is executive produced by Amy B. Harris, Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Len Goldstein, Candace Bushnell and Miguel Arteta. Harris wrote the pilot, which is directed by Arteta.
Based upon The Carrie Diaries novel written by Bushnell, THE CARRIE DIARIES is produced by Fake Empire in association with Warner Bros. Television.
