‘Power’ Creator, Courtney Kemp, Calls For ‘Sex And The City’ Reboot To Feature Strong Women Of Color As Show Regulars
As previously reported, the hit TV series Sex and the City is gearing up for a comeback. It’s been years since the American romantic comedy-drama was on the air, which means some things are bound to be different. Recently Courtney Kemp, who is the show creator and EP of Power, shared her ideas for the reboot. Courtney Kemp tweeted that she hopes this time around Sex and the City has BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) as show regulars with their own storylines. She wrote Friday (Jan. 15th):
“I know we are all dealing with the heavy emotional toll of last year and then the past few weeks… but wouldn’t it be great if the #sexandthecity reboot added a couple of strong BIPOC women as SRs? Not guest stars. Not assistants or co-workers. Friends. With their own stories.”
According to reports, The Sex and the City reboot is set to air on HBO Max and will be called “And Just Like That…”. Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis are allegedly returning to reprise their roles and will make $1 million an episode. However, Kim Cattrall, who played Samantha Jones, is reportedly not returning.
Someone else who could possibly return for the reboot is singer/actress Jennifer Hudson. Jennifer Hudson played the role of Louise, Carrie Bradshaw’s (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) assistant in the 2008 film adaptation of the series. During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jennifer Hudson shared that she’d definitely be open to playing Louise again. She said,
“That would be cool. I am down, I am down!”
