Suddenly, Sex and the City is hot again

sex and the cityI thought we were all pretty much over Carrie and her Manolo Blahniks, weren't we? Too bad. Two of the big four networks have ordered pilots similar to Sex and the City.

ABC has ordered a pilot for the embarrassingly-named Cashmere Mafia, which was created Sex executive producer Darren Star. It's described as "the next generation of Sex and the City". Oh, please let it get a better name. It's about four women who have known each other since college and follows them as they date and work to further their various careers. ABC has also ordered a pilot for Women's Murder Club, described as "CSI meets Sex and the City." It's about a group of female friends who happen to be a homicide detective, a medical examiner, a reporter, and an assistant district attorney. The pilot is going to be directed by Brett Ratner, the man who destroyed The X-Men, so don't expect much.

And finally, NBC gave the greenlight to Lipstick Jungle, based on a novel by the same name about "three powerful New York businesswomen who will do anything to get ahead," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Who's the novelist? Why, it's Candace Bushnell, of course. She's the one who created Sex and the City in the first place.

[Thanks, Karen!]

Even though Brett Ratner directed the awful X-Men, as far as TV Series go he directed the pilot of Prison Break, and that show turned out pretty good.

Surprised to see the Womens Murder Club book series as a pilot now. A TV movie based on one of the novels aired several years back. I think it starred Tracy Pollan (sp?) as the homocide detective and the guy who played Billy on Ally McBeal.

"CSI meets Sex and the City."??

Oh gawd. It'll probably be a huge hit.

Is the Women's Murder Club based on James Patterson books?

He writes a series with an homicide detective, a medical examiner, a reporter, and an assistant district attorney, who call themselves the womens murder club, so I would assume so...
