With the premiere of The CW’s The Carrie Diaries, AnnaSophia Robb reinvents the celebrated Sex and the City character — made famous over a decade ago by Sarah Jessica Parker — starring as a 16-year-old Bradshaw yearning for the bright lights of the big city.
Living with her father in Connecticut, Carrie tries to navigate high school with her trio of pals, Maggie (Katie Findlay), Mouse (Ellen Wong) and Walt (Brendan Dooling).
As the show tackles themes of friendship, family, sexuality, and self-discovery, chart-topping beats from the era blaze in the background.
