From creator Darren Star, “Sex and the City” was a series based on the 1997 book of the same name by Candace Bushnell. Set and filmed in New York City, the show followed the lives of a group of four women—three in their mid-thirties and one in her forties—who, despite their different natures and ever-changing sex lives, were inseparable and regularly confided in one another. Premiering in 1998, the series went on to last six seasons, becoming a major hit for HBO and eventually spawning two successful follow-up films.
