Sex in the City prequel for The CW?

The CW{jcomments off}A prequel based on the hit drama series Sex and the City could be heading to The CW.

TVLine reports that broadcaster is interested in a teen-based prequel to the hit television show which also spawned two Hollywood movies. The series, The Carrie Diaries, would be based on Carrie’s high school years. As yet the project is in its early stages but Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are potentially being lined up to head the project – which makes sense given Gossip Girl’s somewhat similar nature.

Earlier this week it was reported by some that Sex and the City could be heading back to television but without the original cast but this was denied by Sarah Jessica Parker.
