Miguel Arteta is about to experience a little sex and the city…
The Puerto Rican filmmaker has signed on to direct and executive produce the CW’s Carrie Diaries pilot.
Based on Candace Bushnell’s book, Carrie Diaries is the prequel to Bushnell’s Sex and the City—which spawned HBO’s iconic comedy series starring Sarah Jessica Parker as the book’s heroine Carrie Bradshaw and subsequent films.
Carrie Diaries chronicles Carrie’s coming of age in the 1980s, when she asks her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan.
Arteta, who rose to fame after directing The Good Girl and Chuck & Buck, most recently helmed the film Cedar Rapids. He also directed the Thanksgiving episode of Fox’s new breakout hit series New Girl, which introduced recurring guest star Justin Long; as well as episodes of Enlightened and American Horror Story.
