Based on the novel of the same name by Candace Bushnell and written & co-executive-produced for The CW by Amy B. Harris, THE CARRIE DIARIES flashes back to the 1980s when CB was exploring the worlds of high school & NYC, and voicing (over) her first questions about love, sex, friendship & fam. "The search for Carrie Bradshaw was an exciting adventure," says Harris. "When AnnaSophia Robb walked into the room, we knew we had found her. Her grace, intelligence, sense of fun and her empathetic nature make her the perfect girl to bring our young Carrie to life. The fact that she loves a gorgeous pair of heels doesn’t hurt either."
Although Patricia Field won't be on styling duty, the talented Eric Daman of "Gossip Girl" is! "It's a rare invitation to dress a character whose reputation truly precedes her," he adds. "Having played a hand in designing for the Carrie we know and love, I am honored to be chosen to carry the torch — to illuminate the woman we know by discovering the young lady she was."
