While the Sex and the City movie is smashing box office records, it seems like a good time for Kim Cattrall to plot her next move. And plot she is, with today's news that the alter ego of one Samantha Jones will produce and star in a new HBO comedy.
The show bears the slightly icky title of Sensitive Skin — though it's an adaptation of a British series of the same name, so I guess I can't blame Cattrall for that choice. Its plot and main character sound right up Cattrall's alley: According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show "centers on a middle-aged wife and mother in New York who rediscovers her sexuality and begins to question her place in the world and the choices she has made in life." Fun fact: The BBC version starred Joanna Lumley, best-known as Patsy in Absolutely Fabulous.
The original show will be released on DVD for the first time in August, so we'll have plenty of time to check it out before Cattrall's version hits the air. But for now, tell me: Are you ready to see Cattrall heading up her own series? And does this sound like a good role for her — or just more of the same?
