Sex and the City sequel series has added three more characters that will join Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte.
Shadow and Act has learned that Sarita Choudhury, Nicole Ari Parker and Karen Pittman have joined the cast of the HBO Max series. The casting follows Casey Bloys’ statement earlier this year that 3 women of color would be joining the show.
Choudhury plays Seema Patel, a single, self-made powerhouse Manhattan real estate broker. Parker plays Lisa Todd Wexley, a Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian. Pittman plays Dr. Nya Wallace, a brilliant, challenging Columbia Law professor.
Here’s the logline: This new chapter of the groundbreaking HBO series “Sex and the City” follows Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.
The ten-episode, half-hour series is currently shooting in New York. Sara Ramírez, Chris Noth, Mario Cantone, David Eigenberg, Willie Garson and Evan Handler are also new series stars.
