The show begins during Carrie’s senior year of high school as the character begins to ask her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while in Manhattan. The show will have large shoes to fill but breathe easy because THR reports that SATC scribe/co-producer Amy B. Harris will adapt the book and act as a show runner.
The highly anticipated prequel will also be executive produced by Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie duo Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage among others. Which leads us to ask: Who should play Carrie?
It’s hard to imagine anyone portraying this role that isn’t Sarah Jessica Parker, but we at Celebuzz had a few ideas. Our top five picks include: Emma Roberts, Ashley Greene, Ashley Tisdale, Brittany Snow and Miley Cyrus.
Which young actress do you think has what it takes to take on the coveted role? Keep in mind, it is TV so A-list movie star Dakota Fanning probably isn’t jumping at the chance. Cast Carrie in the comments below, and check back to see what the Celebuzz consensus will be from our readers!
