HBO’s ‘The Viagra Diaries’ Will Make Us Long For ‘Sex And The City’

Darren Star, in an effort to punish critics who spoke out against Carrie and the gang in Manhattan, will show us just how uncomfortable and gross things REALLY could have been. He will be adapting for HBO “The Viagra Diaries” (Diaries! They’re not just for princesses, nannies, and vampires anymore!), which is based on Barbara Rose Booker’s novel about sex among seniors in Manhattan.

Star, who was the “brain”power behind “Sex and the City,” will be adapting this novel with Goldie Hawn starring as the lead. If this goes through, HBO will completely OWN the “old people having sex on TV” market. Sex among seniors hasn’t historically received much attention from TV or film, and with good reason. It’s gross and weird, and people who have grandparents that are still alive don’t need to be thinking about that shit.

Stand by for Star’s next project, “Love at the End,” a series about people with terminal illnesses that discuss love and sex in the last year of their lives. In Manhattan. (That’s a joke. Please don’t plant that seed.)
