Sex and the City prequel on the way

January 19th, 2012 by Marc Comments

The CW has ordered three new television series pilots, including a prequel to Sex and the City.

Deadline is reporting that Arrow, Beauty and the Beast and The Carrie Diaries have all been commissioned for production by the teen-centric  network.

Originally reported last week, Arrow will be an adaptation of the DC Comics’ character the Green Arrow written by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg.

Beauty and the Beast will be loosely based on the TV series that ran for three seasons beginning in 1987 starring Ron Perlman as Vincent, a beast-man who lived beneath the streets of New York City, and Linda Hamilton as Catherine, a District Attorney in the city.

Finally, The Carrie Diaries, based on the Candace Bushnell book series that serve as a prequel to Sex and the City, will feature the life of young Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker’s character) as she comes of age in 1980’s Manhattan.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
