The successful writer has a new television series in the works, and it's based on her upcoming novel titled, Is There Still Sex in the City? Paramount Television has agreed to fund the new show, which is set to explore what sex, dating and friendship look like after the age of 50.
Major Grace and Frankie vibes, am I right?
Examining middle-aged men and women, as well as how they interact with each other, Bushnell will write the pilot script based off her the novel that's slated to be released in August.
"At one time, 50-something meant the beginning of retirement—working less, spending more time on your hobbies, with your friends, who like you were sliding into a more leisurely lifestyle," Bushnell said in a statement. "In short, retirement age folks weren't meant to do much of anything but get older and a bit heavier. They weren't expected to exercise, start new business ventures, move to a different state, have casual sex with strangers, and start all over again. But this is exactly what the lives of a lot of 50 and 60-something women look like today and I'm thrilled to be reflecting the rich, complexity of their reality on the page and now on the screen."
"The original Sex and the City book and series served as a groundbreaking touchstone for an entire generation of women, myself included," said the president of Paramount TV, Nicole Clemens. "We're thrilled to be able to continue that conversation from the underrepresented point of view of women in their 50s and answer the question with, 'Yes! There is more sex in the city!'"
Since the whole Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker feud, it's highly unlikely the cast will reunite for the upcoming show. But a girl can dream, right?
