THE CARRIE DIARIES: Amy B. Harris Teases ‘This is the Time’

Comments Off on THE CARRIE DIARIES: Amy B. Harris Teases ‘This is the Time’

It’s prom night for THE CARRIE DIARIES, and as you’d expect, it’s a very important time for Carrie Bradshaw and her friends.

“The episode is about traditions and rights of passages, and prom, obviously, for so many kids is that,” THE CARRIE DIARIES boss Amy B. Harris shared on the set of the hour, “This is the Time.” “Last year, [we didn’t go big] because I wanted this senior prom to be the one. So last year was the prom that didn’t happen: Carrie and Sebastian broke up; Maggie outed Walt. Just small little stories of normal prom mayhem.”

“I knew I wanted — although some of them are dating and in relationships — I knew I wanted [this episode] to be our foursome at prom,” she continued. “Sort of how we first met them, supporting each other in the pilot, this moment is about the four of them; it’s not about their dates or their love lives. So, it was fun to celebrate that.”

It’s Valentine’s Day on THE CARRIE DIARIES, but it won’t be all hearts and roses for our favorite characters. In fact, a few relationships will face some of their biggest tests yet.

“Well, I think this week’s episode is obviously a big one for Walt and Bennet, with a lot of dramatic underpinnings,” THE CARRIE DIARIES creator Amy B. Harris teased. “For me, I think using Valentine’s Day as a place to expose the conventions of love often bump up against the realities of love, was a very exciting for me with all the storylines, but obviously, for Walt and Bennet, this is a big one. And it’s something we’ve been very eager to lead up to, which is if you’re by the gay community in New York in the ’80s, the AIDS epidemic is obviously a part of that universe.”

As Walt and Bennet deal with life-or-death issues, Carrie and Sebastian struggle to figure out their own future, as Mr. Kydd ponders whether to get into business with a young Tony Hawk.

THE CARRIE DIARIES has shaken things up in season 2 for Carrie with the introductions of her new friend,Samantha Jones, and Carrie’s new boyfriend, Weaver. And while the series has always had heart, I don’t know about you, but for me, it feels like everything has been taken to the next level this season.

I recently visited THE CARRIE DIARIES’ New York set, where I sat down with series creator Amy B. Harris to talk about season 2, love triangles, the potential to bring in more SEX AND THE CITY characters, and more…

THE CARRIE DIARIES will put Carrie in awkward positions at home and at work in tonight’s brand new episode, “Borderline,” as Carrie struggles with meeting her father’s girlfriend’s trouble-making son and a difficult “Interview” assignment.

“I think it’s interesting when people are dating who have kids, because you can really like each other, but your kids actually have to like each other, [too,]” THE CARRIE DIARIES showrunner Amy B. Harris told me earlier this week on the show’s New York set. “And that story was stimulated [because] I had been set up with someone [in the past] and it was a family thing, it was very casual, it was just, ‘If you guys like each other, great.’ And he seemed nice enough, but his kid was a total asshole, and everyone was like, ‘No, that can’t happen.’ So that’s a little bit of what we’re going to be managing: how Carrie and Dorrit are going to be getting along with this child. It’s going to be harder for them, because I do think as you’re married with kids, who you date isn’t just about you anymore, it’s about how your family is going to possibly blend. But I do think Carrie is more open to the idea of her father dating now.”

The new, maturer Carrie is also pressing to have more responsibilities at her “Interview” internship, but Harris acknowledged the path for her writing career won’t be that simple.

Comments Off on THE CARRIE DIARIES: Amy B. Harris on Introducing Samantha Jones and What’s to Come in Season 2

THE CARRIE DIARIES is back tonight!

Last season, viewers got to experience some of Carrie Bradshaw’s important firsts, and tonight’s second season premiere brings in arguably the most important first to date: her first meeting with future BFF Samantha Jones. (Played by Kim Catrell on SEX AND THE CITY and by Lindsey Gort in THE CARRIE DIARIES.)

To get some scoop on what’s going down, I spoke with THE CARRIE DIARIES boss Amy B. Harris about casting the pivotal role of Samantha, how the relationship between Samantha and Carrie will develop here, what’s to come in season 2, and more…

Nearly nine years after SEX AND THE CITY went off the air, Carrie Bradshaw once again joins the television landscape with the premiere of THE CARRIE DIARIES. (Airing Mondays at 8 PM on The CW.)

This time around, Carrie is in high school, which means viewers will get to experience her discovering Manhattan for the first time, falling in love, making new friends, and mourning the death of her mother, as she and her father and sister adjust to their new live. (And yes, that last one doesn’t exactly line up with the HBO series, where Carrie said her father abandoned the family. However, it does match up with what “The Carrie Diaries” books say.)

I spoke with THE CARRIE DIARIES executive producer Amy B. Harris (who was also a writer on SEX AND THE CITY), about this “new” Carrie, her romances, having an endpoint, and more…
