Sex may be new reality for HBO

  • 9comments

HBO may revisit Sex and the City, only this time it is the real thing.

The premium cable channel is finalizing a deal for an unscripted comedy pilot described as "an attempt to capture the vivacity, sexuality and friendship of women in a big city under the banner of a reality show," sources said. It comes from Sex and the City coproducer and writer Amy Harris.

It is unclear where or when HBO will shoot the pilot. HBO declined comment.

The pilot order is a rarity for a network that leans heavily on scripted comedies, dramas, and longform projects. But HBO has dabbled in some reality series in recent years, including Family Bonds and Project Greenlight.

Sex, which featured a quartet of women navigating social and romantic challenges in Manhattan, ran from 1998-2004.

Harris previously wrote for HBO's short-lived Lisa Kudrow series The Comeback. She also cowrote the upcoming Lindsay Lohan movie Just My Luck.
