Candace Bushnell, the author of Sex And The City, has just finished writing another novel, which of course feeds off the success of her former, very successful one. It’s called Is There Still Sex in the City? and it hits bookstores August 6, 2019.
And wouldn’t you know it, just as the author delivers the finished manuscript to her publisher, Grove Press, TV producers have been banging on their doors to buy the rights to the create a followup TV series.
Whether it is a success or not, depends on if it can shine above the quality, and possibly far more risque, content being offered by streaming channels such as Netflix.
Is There Still Sex in the City? delves heavily into the subject of sex again. And dating. And friendship. And marriage and divorce and children and death and bereavement. For this time, the folks are well into their 50s.
The setting switches between the Upper East Side, Manhattan, and a country enclave known as ‘The Village’ (because older folks like to get away to the country now and then).
Candace Bushnell will write the pilot script and will serve as an executive producer on the television series.
Whether it is a success or not, depends on if it can shine above the quality, and possibly far more risque, content being offered by streaming channels such as Netflix. And lest we forget how badly Bushnell’s other TV adaptation bombed, the shoddily depicted Lipstick Jungle which even a revamped Brooke Shields couldn’t help save.
Whatever the case, please, please, please bring back lots more Samantha.
