The show, from writer/executive producer Amy B. Harris, will follow Carrie as she goes through life in the 1980s.
“The search for Carrie Bradshaw was an exciting adventure. Having been a part of the ‘Sex and The City’ series, I felt such an honor and responsibility to the fans of the show to find someone who embodied the spirit of Manhattan’s favorite ‘It’ girl,” Harris said in a statement on Friday. “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.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Stefania Owen, the daughter from the now-canceled FOX comedy “Running Wilde,” will play Carrie’s little sister, Dorrit, 14.
The storyline will focus on a high-school aged Carrie, following the death of her mother, as she is raised by her father in Connecticut.
