Don’t look for a movie prequel to the Sex and the City saga — at least not by Michael Patrick King. During today’s TCA panel on King’s new CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls, the executive producer took a detour to answer a question about rumors of a Sex and the City prequel movie, which would follow Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte through their teens into their 20s and would be based on author Candace Bushnell’s novels The Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City. King was executive producer/showrunner of HBO’s Sex and the City series and wrote and directed the two Sex and the City movies. “I’m not working on any Sex and the City prequel at all,” he said. “I haven’t read Candace’s Bushnell’s books. … My Carrie Bradshaw started at 33 and I took her to 43 — I don’t even want to know who Carrie Bradshaw’s parents are … the idea of going backward, making her less evolved, is something that I can’t even imagine doing. I have no connection to the prequel.”
