Based on the novel by Candace Bushnell and featuring a bright young cast, “The Carrie Diaries” — a one-hour drama from “Sex and the City” writer/co-producer Amy B. Harris and “Gossip Girl” executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage — is the origin story of how Carrie Bradshaw became Carrie Bradshaw. The series premieres Monday, January 14 at 8pm on The CW.
