Check out the first look at The Carrie Diaries from the CW. The show is based on Candace Bushnell’s young adult novel which highlights the teen years of Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City.

Official synopsis: It’s 1984, and life isn’t easy for 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw. Since their mother passed away, Carrie’s younger sister Dorritt is more rebellious than ever, and their father Tom is overwhelmed with the responsibility of suddenly having to care for two teenage girls on his own. Carrie’s friends – sweet, geeky Mouse, snarky Maggie and sensitive Walt – make life bearable, but a suburban life in Connecticut isn’t doing much to take her mind off her troubles. Even the arrival of a sexy new transfer student named Sebastian only reminds Carrie that she spent the whole summer grieving rather than moving on with life. So when Tom offers Carrie the chance to intern at a law firm in Manhattan, she leaps at the chance. Carrie’s eyes are opened wide at the glamour and grit of New York City – and when she meets Larissa, the style editor for Interview magazine, she’s inspired by the club culture and unique individuals that make up Larissa’s world. Carrie’s friends and family may have a big place in her heart, but she’s fallen in love for the first time with the most important man in her life – Manhattan.

The young Carrie is played by Anna Sophia Robb. She is joined by Stefania Owen as Dorrit Bradshaw; Ellen Wong as Mouse; Katie Findlay as Maggie; Chloe Bridges; Austin Butler as Sebastian; Brendan Dooling as Walt; Freema Agyeman as Larissa and Matt Letscher as Tom.

There is currently no release date for the show.
