‘Sex and the City’ prequel pilot, ‘Carrie Diaries’, will begin filming in NYC this month

The highly anticipated CW pilot, The Carries Diaries, will begin filming in NYC this month.

According to a recent casting call, The Carrie Diaries will be shooting in New York City on 3/24 and 3/25 (with fittings happening this week). The casting call was looking for men and women, ages 18-70.

The pilot will star AnnaSophia Robb as a young Carrie Bradshaw and Austin Butler as her love interest, Sebastian Kydd. Based on the best-selling book, The Carrie Diaries gives a glimpse inside Carrie’s pre-Sex and the City days.

Gossip Girl producer Josh Schwartz is executive producing the show.

The pilot is expected to film at various locations around NYC (including Wall Street) and will be based at Silvercup Studios in Long Island City (just like SATC was back in the day).
