Two decades after Carrie Bradshaw and her coterie of day-drinking friends tackled all manner of life’s big questions on Sex and the City, the smash-hit series is getting a follow-up. Paramount Television and production outfit Anonymous Content will adapt Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell’s new book Is There Still Sex in the City? as a TV series.
To be published this summer, Is There Still Sex in the City? is set in and around New York City and confronts the topics of dating, sex, marriage, divorce, and friendship after 50.
“At one time, 50-something meant the beginning of retirement — working less, spending more time on your hobbies, with your friends, who, like you, were sliding into a more leisurely lifestyle,” Bushnell told Deadline Hollywood, which broke the news. “In short, retirement age folks weren’t meant to do much of anything but get older and a bit heavier.” Today, however, women that age “exercise, start new business ventures, move to a different state, have casual sex with strangers, and start all over again.”
Bushnell will executive produce the show and write the pilot episode. No date has yet been set for its premiere.
