It's only fitting that Sarah Jessica Parker's lead character Carrie in the HBO series "Sex and the City" is dressed for sex-cess. After all, she is a newspaper sex columnist. Her clothes are chosen by N.Y. costume designers and business partners Patricia Field and Rebecca Field (who are not related). Although the show stars a quartet of single Manhattan women on the make, the costumes are practically a fifth character.

Kim Cattrall said she didn't want to wait any longer for more "Sex and the City," so that means costars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis won't be getting any either. At least for a while. HBO representatives said Cattrall's refusal led the cable channel to drop the idea of a feature film based on the popular series, which ended its six-season run this year.

This was supposed to be a eulogy, but the hand may have just popped out of the grave, the way it did in that other story about a girl named Carrie. There's something unsettling about the news that Michael Patrick King, "Sex and the City's" executive producer and the show's trusty engine the last few years, is working on a big-screen adaptation that will "pick up where the series leaves off," as HBO says. It's unsettling because, well, where does the series plan to leave off?

No decision has been made on the future of "Sex and the City," Home Box Office said Tuesday, despite a comment by one of the stars that the Emmy-winning comedy would end next year. Co-star Cynthia Nixon, in an interview with Fox News Channel, indicated the coming season would be the show's last. As it stands, the program is scheduled to resume production in March, after cutting its schedule short this year because of star-producer Sarah Jessica Parker's pregnancy.

Michael Patrick King's job is enough to make a mother proud. Proud and a little red-faced. King is the executive producer of the saucy HBO hit comedy series "Sex and the City," but he's also the product of an Irish Catholic family that never discussed sex, he says. Now King's mother, a former manager of a Krispy Kreme Doughnut shop in Scranton, Pa., finds herself having previously unimaginable graphic conversations with her show-business son.

Anyone looking for a sexist conspiracy might question why "The Sopranos," the HBO series about a Prozac-popping Mafioso, garnered so much media attention when "Sex and the City," another original HBO show that preceded it by several months, broke TV ground in its own very significant way. Mobsters have mistresses and fear their mothers. Now, that's a big revelation? Girls have bedmates they would never be seen with in public. Now, that is a revelation.

Here's proof that "Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell and her TV counterpart, Carrie Bradshaw, really are two different people. It's midafternoon on a lovely late-summer day, and at the super-chic Federalist bar, Bushnell declines to order a Cosmopolitan. "That's a little too strong for me at this time of day," Bushnell says of the martini, lighting her first Merit and calling instead for a Bloody Mary. She takes her first sip of the afternoon. "You know, this won't make me talk more."

It had already been a lousy day for "Sex and the City" columnist Carrie Bradshaw when she tried to get on the subway. The entrance was roped off--another terrorist alert in an already skittish city had shut it down. Recognize that scene from the HBO comedy's season-opener last month? No? That's because it was filmed and discarded, deemed heavy-handed and untrue to what the city is experiencing in the summer of 2002. "Sex and the City" producers faced a delicate balancing act this season.

One of the first publicity hiccups for Mike Binder's HBO series "The Mind of the Married Man" occurred last summer, in a ballroom at the Pasadena Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The nation's television critics and reporters were on hand for the semiannual unveiling of new TV shows on the cable and broadcast networks. HBO had put together a moving hour on "Band of Brothers," the pay channel's 10-part World War II epic based on the book by Stephen Ambrose.
