Darren Star Brings Call Girl Show to HBO

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.

Say what?
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.

That's not all Star's doing.
In addition to this show, he's also producing Cashmere Mafia, as well as the ABC comedy pilot Literary Superstar (yes, yet more women who write!) starring Jenna Elfman.
