"Sex and the City," HBO's hit show about the lives of four New York women, may soon have a sister show. The author (and in some ways original Carrie Bradshaw) of the book on which the series was based, is ready to turn another of her popular novels into a TV show.

Lipstick Jungle a Potential for TV
Candace Bushnell, who created and lived "Sex and the City," has another popular book ready for television. "Lipstick Jungle" is the story of three forty-something women in New York. The women have careers that, according to Bushnell, "take off" once they pass thirty. The book, and potentially the TV show, will follow their lives once these ladies begin to succeed.
Although talks are in the preliminary stages right now, it's hard to imagine a network passing up on the opportunity to create another of Bushnell's works. After all, the first won multiple Emmy's and gained a huge following. Bushnell herself wants to keep showing women as she knows them: successful, smart, and, apparently, New Yorkers.
Stay tuned for updates.
