CBS Picks Up Sex and the City for Poor People

CBS has purchased a show written on spec by Michael Patrick King, who formerly helmed Sex and the City, and comedian Whitney Cummings, Deadline reports.

The show is titled Two Broke Girls and sounds not too far out of Mr. King’s usual territory.

TV project [sic] centers on two 22-year-old girls who tackle life in New York: two broke girls, one expensive city. (It is safe to assume that the two won’t be wearing Manolo Blahniks.)

Safe indeed! Mr. Cummings is only 28 herself but she’s already attached to star in an NBC comedy about “a woman who’s afraid of marriage.” For his part, Mr. King has also another pilot with NBC, his is about a “50-something Beverly Hills hairdresser.” It is not a comedy.
