AnnaSophia Robb doesn’t have the old Manolo Blahniks to fall back on, but she still does a credible job of evoking the image of a young Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw in the first released image from “The Carrie Diaries.”
The pilot, based on Candace Bushnell novel of the same name, is a prequel to HBO’s much-revered “Sex and the City” and promises to look at Carrie’s life in Manhattan in the ’80s — back before she was the famous writer jetting off to the Middle East and wearing more expensive fashions than a Bergdorf Goodman mannequin.
The series has not yet been put on the CW’s schedule, but with the kind of high-profile attention the pilot is getting, there’s a good chance we’ll see it on TVs this fall.
