Very nicely done. I love the fact that we got goodies as soon as we walked in. In keeping with the 80's theme of the series all the candy was reminiscent of tht era. The preview is an indication of a successful series. The Q & A was a wonderful...continued

The venue was nice. There was candy, popcorn and soda like a real movie house. The pilot was well written and I think fans of Sex in the City will love this show as much as the original. The discussion panel afterwards was like the icing on the cake!

Well the excitement of going to the screening and the reception was so nice, but I did not like the show. Too explicit for me.

Description

The pre-screening reception will feature passed hors d’oeuvres. Alcohol will not be available at the event.

The Carrie Diaries drops us in 1984, where 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, sarcastic and  self-assured Maggie and sensitive Walt – make life bearable, but a suburban life in Connecticut isn’t  doing much to take her mind off her troubles. And even though the arrival of a sexy new transfer  student named Sebastian brings some excitement to Carrie’s world, she is struggling to move on from  her grief. 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 series stars AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer) as Carrie Bradshaw, Austin Butler (Switched at Birth) as Sebastian Kydd, Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) as Mouse; Katie Findlay (The Killing) as  Maggie Landers, Stefania Owen (Running Wilde) as Dorrit Bradshaw, Brendan Dooling (An Elf’s  Story: The Elf on the Shelf) as Walt Reynolds, Chloe Bridges (90210) as Donna LaDonna, Freema  Agyeman (Doctor Who) as Larissa Loughton and Matt Letscher (Brothers & Sisters) as Tom Bradshaw.

Television, with executive  producers Amy B. Harris (Sex and the City, Gossip Girl), Josh Schwartz (Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl),  Stephanie Savage (Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl), Len Goldstein (Hart of Dixie) and Candace Bushnell.  Miguel Arteta (Englightened, Cedar Rapids) directed the pilot, which was written by Harris.
