‘Sex and the City’ Follow Up Series is in the Works

Don’t call it a sequel, call it a follow up to one of the most groundbreaking TV shows ever, Sex and the City. 

According to Variety, the series draws from Candance Bushnell’s latest book, Is There Still Sex in the City?, which Paramount TV (think Younger) just acquired the rights to.

Bushnell is the woman behind the original SATC book.

Though the book will be released on August 6th, the series is already in the works with a focus on love, dating, friendship and sex — so everything SATC focused on — for women over fifty in New York City.

“It didn’t used to be this way. At one time, fifty something meant the beginning of retirement—working less, spending more time on your hobbies, with your friends, who like you were sliding into a more leisurely lifestyle,” Bushnell said in a statement. “In short, retirement age folks weren’t meant to do much of anything but get older and a bit heavier. They weren’t expected to exercise, start new business ventures, move to a different state, have casual sex with strangers, and start all over again. But this is exactly what the lives of a lot of fifty- and sixty something women look like today and I’m thrilled to be reflecting the rich, complexity of their reality on the page and now on the screen.”

Given that the series isn’t being labeled a sequel, we don’t expect to see original foursome. Chances begin to look even slimmer when you think about all the off-screen drama being reported to the media as of late.

Though we’re 100% open to guest-stars.

“The original Sex And The City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included,” said Nicole Clemens, President of Paramount Television. “We’re thrilled to be able to continue that conversation from the underrepresented point of view of women in their 50s and answer the question with, ‘Yes! There is more sex in the city!’”

Bushnell is attached to the pilot and will also serve as an executive producer.

The original SATC found much success on HBO from 1998-2006.
At one point last year, there were talks of a third film, but Kim Catrall (who has beef with leading lady Sarah Jessica Parker) nixed the idea.
As we wait for this new phase in our lives and chapter in SATC, we always have reruns.
Grab those martinis, ladies!

‘Schitt’s Creek’ Launching in National Syndication Following Emmys Sweep

Published

Schitt's Creek to Be Available for National Broadcast Syndication

The small town of Schitt’s Creek is going nationwide! 

After sweeping the Emmys on Sunday, September 20, the half-hour sitcom is coming to a TV near you. 

You’ll be able to watch the fan-favorite comedy anywhere as it’s being launched into national syndication across U.S broadcast markets starting on September 28, per the press release from Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, who owns the domestic broadcast rights. 

Prior to Sunday’s show, the Pop TV original had zero Emmy’s, but now, it’s being referred to as a nine-time Emmy Award-winning comedy. Talk about bragging rights. 

During the 2020 virtual show, it won all seven of the major comedy categories and became the first to win all four comedy-acting categories in one year. 

QUIZ: Which ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Character Are You?

The cast includes Emmy Award winners Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy and Chris Elliott. Rounding out the cast are Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Noah Reid, Sarah Levy, Karen Robinson, Dustin Milligan, John Hemphill, Rizwan Manji, and Tim Rozon.

Schitt’s Creek centers on an outrageously wealthy video store magnate, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy); his former soap-star wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara); and their two adult children – the self-described black sheep of the family David (Daniel Levy) and career socialite Alexis (Annie Murphy). When the family suddenly find themselves broke, they have no choice but to move to Schitt’s Creek, a small-town Johnny once bought as a joke. Forced to live out of a motel, with their pampered lives a memory, they struggle to find jobs and relationships and, most importantly, figure out what it means to be a family in the loveable town they’ve reluctantly come to call home. 

Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, commented, “What begins as a fish-out-of-water story quickly develops into a nuanced love letter to family, delivered with warmth, humanity and perfect comedic timing. With a gifted cast and whip-smart writing, it’s easy to see why ‘Schitt’s Creek’ appeals to Emmy voters, critics and viewers, and has built a loyal and passionate fan base. We are excited to bring the Emmy Award-winning series to broadcast television stations and introduce the iconic Rose family to a new audience.”

Previously, Schitt’s Creek was available for streaming on Netflix.

The sixth and final season will be available on the platform starting Wednesday, October 7.

‘This Is Us’ Season 5 Moves Up Premiere Date – Find Out When You Can Reunite with the Pearsons!

This Is Us Season 5 Moves Up Premiere Date - Find Out When You Can Reunite with the Pearsons!

The wait for new episodes of This Is Us is almost over. 

The show’s fifth season will premiere on Tuesday, October 27, a few weeks ahead of its previously announced November 10 premiere

NBC made the announcement during a commercial that ran during the season finale of America’s Got Talent on Wednesday.

The show’s official social media accounts also revealed the good news writing: “We just couldn’t wait any longer, but we have a feeling you won’t mind.”

The reunion with the Pearsons will be a two-hour event, which will hopefully answer some burning questions left behind by season 4 like who Madison’s doctor is and why Nicky was by Rebecca’s bedside instead of Miguel. 

Oh, Baby! ‘This Is Us’ Actress Mandy Moore Pregnant With First Child

The series has about a month to turn over new episodes as TVLine notes that the series is set to start production this week following a mandatory hiatus brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Like many shows including FOX’s The Resident, the season isn’t shying away from reality but will instead tackle the pandemic “head-on,” series creator Dan Fogelman revealed on Twitter.

It’s unclear how the public health crisis will play into the show’s narrative or how it’ll affect the tight-knit Pearson clan. Maybe that’s why Randall and Kevin haven’t seen each other for years? Yes, we’re trying to pretend that big explosive fight in the This Is Us Season 4 finale never happened! 

Turning it over to you, Cravers. Are you excited for the return of This Is Us?
