Sex and the City castCarrie Bradshaw in high school? Yes, Candace Bushnell has written the books, 'The Carrie Diaries' and 'Summer in the City,' but they may be heading to the small screen.

According to the Los Angeles Times, HBO is contemplating a 'Sex and the City' prequel based on Bushnell's books. 'The Carrie Diaries,' set in the 1980s, follows Carrie Bradshaw during her senior year of high school and her beginnings in New York City. Samantha Jones is the only other 'Sex and the City' character to appear in the novel.

Rumors of a prequel movie based on the hit HBO series starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kristin Davis and Kim Cattrall began flying in early August with some of Hollywood's famous starlets reportedly filling out the cast.

The series HBO is toying with won't necessarily air on the cable network. LA Times reports the network could produce the series for another network.

For now, the rumors are just that. 'Sex and the City' executive producer Michael Patrick King told reporters he is not involved with a prequel.

"I'm not working on any 'Sex and the City' prequel at all," King said while promoting his new CBS comedy '2 Broke Girls.' "My Carrie Bradshaw started at 33, and I took her to 43. For me, the idea of going backwards and making her less evolved ... is something that I don't even imagine doing. I have no connection to the prequel."
