Deadline is reporting that
The Carrie Diaries will be adapted for TV by
Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage and penned by
Sex and the City writer and producer Amy Harris.
The Carrie Diaries is a prequel by Candace Bushnell to her immensely successful Sex and the City series and follows its protagonist Carrie Bradshaw through the senior year of high school in a small New England town.
Because of its younger target audience, the TV adaptation of the book is not coming to Sex and the City's HBO network, but to the CW, reports Deadline.
Neither SATC's creator Darren Star nor Carrie impersonator Sarah Jessica Parker are on board for the moment.
