If you haven’t already heard, there’s a new clan hitting CW Drive; and they come in peace. The New York based series will premier January 2013, taking the place of veteran and soon to be completed series Gossip GIrl. Although excutive Producer, Amy B. Harris states that The Carrie Diaries won’t be a mini SATC, we’re sure in for a ride. With AnnaSophia Robb in the title role of Carrie, and a slew of other misfit characters, the series is sought out to be the new Gossip Girl. Eric Damon, notable costume designer is on board as the show’s resident fashionista. And if that doesn’t scream trendsetting, then I don’t know what does!
