First Look At AnnaSophia Robb As Carrie Bradshaw In 'The Carrie Diaries'

This is either going to be a huge hit and be a television staple for many years to come, or a car-crash that barely makes it through a handful of episodes. We're talking about "The Carrie Diaries" -- the "Sex and the City" prequel based on the novels of Candance Bushnell that's being lined up over at the CW. The series will follow Carrie Bradshaw back in the '80s during her senior year of high school.

The Carrie Diaries AnnaSophia Robb

This is either going to be a huge hit and be a television staple for many years to come, or a car-crash that barely makes it through a handful of episodes. We're talking about "The Carrie Diaries" -- the "Sex and the City" prequel based on the novels of Candance Bushnell that's being lined up over at the CW. The series will follow Carrie Bradshaw back in the '80s during her senior year of high school.

AnnaSophia Robb -- who was fantastic in "Bridge to Terabithia" and proved an engaging lead in the otherwise tepid "Soul Surfer" -- will take on the Sarah Jessica Parker role in the series, and now we've got our first look at her in full Carrie garb. In fairness, this is a pretty great image and there's no mistaking who the character is. We like Robb, and this cements the idea that this doesn't seem like awful casting, but that doesn't change the fact that this cash-cow is being milked by the CW.

We can't imagine this show is going to appeal any of the HBO series' original fans, and that rather it will be attempting to bring in a new audience with a show that more closely resembles the consumerist garbage the franchise latterly became. We won't write it off completely yet, and we're hoping for the best for Robb, so when this debuts we'll be happy if we're pleasantly surprised. [TVFanatic]
