Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl Goes To Hollywood

Darren Star, the producer and writer who adapted Sex and the City for HBO, has just announced that he is creating a new series based on Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl, the novel written by Tracy Quan.

Like Candace Bushness, whose book, Sex and the City, was based on her sex column for the NY Observer, Tracy Quan's novel, Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl, was based on her sex column for An editor who read her column made a book deal with Tracy, and now her book will become the basis of a new HBO series.

According to The Hollywood Star Reporter, “Diary," from Darren Star Prods. and Sony Pictures TV, is an ensemble show that takes a look at how power, sex and money collide through the eyes of a group of Manhattan's highest-paid escorts forced to juggle their johns, jobs and relationships.

"These women are not at all ashamed or stigmatized by what they do. In fact, there is something aspirational about it," Star said. "No one has quite looked at the world of high-end call girls, and this show intends to do that."

I consider Tracy to be more than just a client. She is also a friend and I wish her the best of luck with her latest success.
