AnnaSophia Robb, the cute teen moppet that starred in a succession of films (“Bridge to Terabithia”, “The Reaping”, “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory”), before fading into obscurity, or rather, a tertiary education, will play young Carrie Bradshaw in “Sex and the City” prequel series, “The Carrie Diaries”.

The Hollywood Reporter
says the show, set to air on THE CW, centers “around a young Carrie Bradshaw as she comes of age in the 1980s, asking her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan.”

Like “Sex”, “Diaries” is also based on a series of books by author Candace Bushell.

”The first book in Bushnell’s origin story was published last year and, like Sex and the City, is told from Carrie’s point of view. It follows the aspiring writer through her relationship with Sebastian Kydd and rivalry with popular girl Donna LaDonna”, says the trade.

Miguel Arteta directs the pilot. “OC” alum Josh Schwartz is one of the show’s executive producers.

Stefania Owen is also onboard the pilot, playing Carrie’s younger sister.
