Scenes will be filmed for the “Sex and the City” reboot on Thursday, November 11 from 7am-9pm between 57th and 60th Streets. Signs for “NCP” – the code name for the upcoming HBO series – were posted advising once again that anyone with a car parked in the area should take heed or else face the wrath of the mighty tow truck.
SJP and the crew have been spotted all over the city since midsummer working hard on “And Just Like That …” – the 10-episode revival of the hit show. The cast was spotted on the Upper East Side in July, and on the Upper West Side in July and again during August. More recently, fans of the show were offered the chance to stay in Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic apartment across town on the Upper East Side for a mere $23 per night through Airbnb.
The original series broke new ground when it aired from 1998 to 2004. Lead characters Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda championed female independence, sexuality, and a woman’s view of New York City in a way few other shows did previously. So it should come as no surprise that star Sarah Jessica Parker clapped back at those who recently made misogynistic comments about her appearance.
“There’s so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man,” the actress told Vogue, emphasizing each word. “‘Gray hair gray hair gray hair. Does she have gray hair?’ I’m sitting with Andy Cohen, and he has a full head of gray hair, and he’s exquisite. Why is it okay for him? I don’t know what to tell you people!”
The series is set to air on HBO Max this December. Viewers can expect to see Jennifer Hudson pop in for a cameo, the return of Mr. Big, and (maybe) even a little of Carrie’ ex-love Aidan. (Check out Aidan and Carrie’s final break up scene filmed at the Columbus Circle fountain in 2001. Side note: I accidentally saw them filming this scene late one hot summer night in August 2001 and was just as devastated when the storyline unfolded in Season 4 as I was watching it that night.)
