What happened before Mr. Big? Before the shoe collection? Heck, before Carrie Bradshaw ever had sex?
The CW will ask and attempt to answer that question this January when The Carrie Diaries premieres on Monday nights.
It stars AnnaSophia Robb in the role made famous by Sarah Jessica Parker and it will chronicle Carrie's senior year of high school, which took place in New York in the 1980s. How will the high life of Manhattan come into play? What about hot dogs and key holes?
