Recapping Emmanuel's last post on this in March... Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who, Law & Order:UK) signed on to co-star in the CW's Sex and The City prequel, The Carrie Diaries.  

The Carrie Diaries is based on Candace Bushnell’s novel, and chronicles Carrie Bradshaw’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. 

Agyeman plays the role of Larissa, Carrie’s mentor, described as a hip, cutting-edge editor/party girl who works at Interview magazine.

The first trailer/preview of the new series surfaced a few days ago, and is embedded below (the series is expected to debut in January 2013); Agyeman first appears about halfway through, after the initial set-up:
