The CW might be known for hot vampires and Tyra Banks' army of wannabe models, but this fall it might do the time warp back to the '80s. The network is developing a prequel to Sex and the City called The Carrie Diaries, centering on Carrie Bradshaw's teenage years in the 1980s.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


The show stars AnnaSophia Robb taking on the iconic role created by Sarah Jessica Parker, and based on the first official image, it's a totally '80s series.

The Carrie Diaries is one of eight pilots being developed by the CW. Others include the comic book series Arrow, a modern remake of Beauty and the Beast, the Hunger Games-esque The Selection and the time-traveling musical love story Joey Dakota.
