The Carrie Diaries Style Isn't a 'Joke Version of the '80s,' Says Producer

The Carrie Diaries takes place in the early 1980s, but don't expect the decade's style clichés displayed on the show.

"Our whole idea for this was I didn't want it to feel like the joke version of the '80s with people in those thin glasses or parachute pants where even in the '80s we were all kind of thinking, 'Is this a mistake? It think it might be,' " the Sex and the City prequel's executive producer Amy B. Harris said during at the Television Critics Association panel to promote the highly anticipated show.

Instead, Harris and creator Candace Bushnell, who was also on hand for the premiere, hope to give 1984's Carrie Bradshaw – played by AnnaSophia Robb – her own identity and a new set of friends, reports Huffington Post.

The pilot for the CW network will star AnnaSophia Robb, shown here for the first time in costume (designed by Sex and the City and Gossip Girl's Emmy-winning Eric Daman) as the young Carrie.
