HBO is getting sexy again.
Sex and the City creator Darren Star is bringing sexy back to the network with a new series called Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl, based on columnist Tracy Quan's semi-autobiographical novel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ensemble comedy "takes a look at how power, sex and money collide through the eyes of a group of Manhattan's highest-paid escorts forced to juggle their johns, jobs and relationships." It was originally supposed to be a feature film, but when that didn't pan out, Star took the project to the network that made SATC such a big hit. Says Star: "These women are not at all ashamed or stigmatized by what they do. In fact, there is something aspirational about it."
Sounds right up Star's alley.
It includes a trio of his favorite concepts: 1) women who 2) write 3) about sex.
