Sex And The City Follow Up Series In The Works At Paramount TVPublished on March 28, 2019.
It looks like the Sex and the City story isn’t quite done yet!
According to reports Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell now has a new TV project in the works with Paramount Television and Anonymous Content for her new book Is There Still Sex in the City? which is due out in August.
The new book takes a look at all of the things central in Sex and the City like friendship, dating and sex but those time for those over 50 years old.
“The original Sex and the City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included,” Nicole Clemens, president of Paramount TV, said in a statement. “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!'”
Bushnell who wrote the pilot script and will also executive produce added, “It didn’t used to be this way. At one time, 50-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 50 and 60-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.”
For right now it seems that none of the Sex and the City stars are tied to the project and as of right now, the deal is still in the early stages and no greenlight order has been given.
