Following in the footsteps of the grownup version, The Carrie Diaries is poised to become a TV series, beginning in January on the CW. The pilot premiered on the opening night of the New York Television Festival on Monday. Star AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer, Bridge to Terabithia), producer Amy B. Harris and Bushnell were on hand for a Q&A session after the screening.

Naturally, the younger Carrie has a circle of friends, but thy are not named Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha. Her practice friends are Maggie, Walt and The Mouse.
