Carrie Bradshaw will soon be strutting her Manolo Blahniks on E!
The Comcast Entertainment Group-owned network will begin its cable run with HBO's former comedy stalwart Sex and the City on Jan. 3. E!, succeeding TBS as the cable home to the series, will begin stripping the show's 94 half-hour installments in one-hour blocks, weeknights 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
The network plans to run the series, starring Sarah Jessica Parker as Manhattan writer Bradshaw, and her friends, public relations executive Samantha Jones, art dealer Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) and corporate lawyer Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), chronologically.
Comcast Entertainment Group acquired the basic-cable television rights to Sex and the City in April. The deal terms of which were not disclosed gives E! and sister service The Style Network access to all six seasons of the series and certain broadband, wireless and on-demand rights.
E!, through a separate agreement, also holds the basic-cable rights to the Sex and the City theatrical, starting in July 2012.
