The Carrie Diaries to Air on The CW; Search for the Next Carrie Bradshaw is On!

by at . Comments

Following chatter that it may become a movie, The Carrie Diaries - Candace Bushenll's prequel novel to Sex and the City - has instead been picked up as a pilot for The CW and will likely be included on that network's fall schedule.

In other words: the search for a new Carrie Bradshaw is on!

Carrie Diaries

The story follows Carrie as a high school student in Manhattan and, via earlier rumors, Blake Lively was supposedly up the the iconic lead role.

But she'll be on Gossip Girl when the series premieres and is likely to test out a movie career once that show is finished. Who does that leave for Carrie? We've listed four suggestions below and are open to others. Who do you think is the best fit?

There is only one Carrie and that is SJP sorry they just need to leave it alone .


I think Blake Lively is too pretty to play Carrie, but on the other hand, so are most of young actresses.




I think Blake Lively would be phenomenal but she might be a tiny bit too 'old' for the role.
