Kim CattrallIt's a good week to be Kim Cattrall. Sex and the City was the number one movie this weekend, and it was just announced that Cattrall will star in Sensitive Skin, a new series for HBO. The actress is also serving as executive producer on the series, which is an adaptation of a BBC comedy.

Cattrall will play the role of a middle-aged wife and mother who, according to the character description, "rediscovers her sexuality and begins to question her place in the world." The American adaptation of Sensitive Skin is set in New York. A middle-aged New Yorker exploring her sexuality--why does that sound familiar? The series is Cattrall's second post-SATC project for HBO; she produced and starred in the 2005 documentary Kim Cattrall: Sexual Intelligence.

The creative forces behind the original British series are also involved in the American version. Writer-director Hugo Blick joins Cattrall as executive producer, along with Henry Normal, whose production company brought us the original Sensitive Skin. The writing for the series should be top-notch as well. Emmy-winners Mitchell Burgess and Robin Green, formerly of The Sopranos, are part of the show's writing and producing teams.

Should Kim Cattrall give the sexy programming a rest, or is this role right up her alley?

Oh, I LOVE that Kim Cattrall is doing something like this. I don't think she should give this up at all ... it's an inspiration to those of us who are ... ahem ... more mature in years that we don't just languish away but that we are vital, sexual people. Woo hoo!
