How Sex is returning to the City in possible new TV show

2019-03-29 20:00

Cape Town – A follow-up series to the iconic Sex and the City is possibly coming to television that this time will focus on the sex and romantic lives of older women and that will look at the pressures faced by 50-something women in New York to try and maintain their youth and have it all.

The new book, Is There Still Sex in the City? from author Candace Bushnell is released by Grove Press on 6 August, and it has now been acquired by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content with plans to turn it into a TV series as well.

Candace Bushnell will be writing the pilot script for a possible series and serve as executive producer.

The original Sex and the City series ran from 1998 to 2004, followed by two films about the lives of Carrie Bradshaw and her friends – as well as a prequel series, The Carrie Diaries, about Carrie as a teenager in 2013.

Deadline reports that Is There Still Sex in the City? focuses on older women and is once again Candace Bushnell's further piercing, sly, and sometimes heartbreaking look at sex, dating, and friendship in New York City after 50.

The new exploration is set between the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a country enclave known as The Village, with the book that looks at love and life from all angles: marriage and children, divorce and bereavement, as well as the very real pressures on women to maintain their youth and have it all.
