What's The Carrie Diaries?
Pulsing with the explosive energy of the unknown and the exciting urban setting of New York in the 1980s, The Carrie Diaries stars the enticing AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer) as Carrie Bradshaw, an inquisitive and thoughtful teen coming of age in the suburbs, who is beckoned by a glamorous and gritty Manhattan as she maneuvers high school and asks her first questions about sex, love and loss.
Along with Robb, The Carrie Diaries stars Austin Butler (Switched at Birth, Life Unexpected), Lindsey Gort (2 Guns), Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Combat Hospital), Katie Findlay (The Killing, SGU Stargate Universe), Stefania Owen (Running Wilde, The Lovely Bones), Brendan Dooling (Unforgettable), Chloe Bridges (90210) with Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who, Law & Order: UK) and Matt Letscher (Brothers & Sisters, Entourage). The show is based on the novels The Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell.
Developed by Amy B. Harris (Sex and the City, Gossip Girl), The Carries Diaries is executive produced by Harris, Josh Schwartz (Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl), Stephanie Savage (Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl), Len Goldstein ((Hart of Dixie) and Bushnell. Vivid, vibrant, romantic, relatable and utterly exciting, much like New York City itself, The Carrie Diaries is the origin story of how Carrie Bradshaw - known and loved by audiences worldwide - became Carrie Bradshaw.
