HBO developing reality Sex and the City

HBO is developing a series that would be a reality TV version of Sex and the City.

HBO “is finalizing a deal for an unscripted comedy pilot described as ‘an attempt to capture the vivacity, sexuality and friendship of women in a big city under the banner of a reality show,’” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

There’s no word on casting, the show’s name, an eventual premiere date, or the date and location where the pilot will be shot. The show is produced by Amy Harris, who worked on Sex and the City as a writer and producer.
