Sex and the Slope
It's time for us to sell our house and move. Now. From today's New York Post:
'...After years of taking shots from Carrie Bradshaw and her friends, Brooklyn is about to get its due.
Producers are giving Park Slope the star treatment with a pilot by the same executives who brought "Sex and the City," starring Sarah Jessica Parker, and "Melrose Place" to TV.
According to industry sources, Darren Star, who created those smash shows, has teamed with Sony and NBC for a proposed series about a group of affluent characters who live in the upscale Brooklyn neighborhood.
Sue Kramer, who wrote and directed the 2006 romantic comedy "Gray Matters" starring Heather Graham, Bridget Moynahan and Molly Shannon, is writing the script.
"It's an hour-long dramady," Kramer, who lives in Park Slope, told Page Six.
"It takes place in Park Slope and Park Slope is one of the characters in it. Park Slope has so much juice, just like Manhattan. It's got a lot of pizzazz and energy."
The show remains untitled and has not yet been cast, but will have the usual staples of a Darren Star project: laughs, drama, heartbreak - and, of course, sex, sources say.
If the show gets the green light, viewers can see the first episode sometime next year...'
It's just my luck that they would start producing a 'dramady' [sic] in my neighborhood just as real estate values are dropping. I can't catch a break...
