CW's series "The Carrie Diaries" is set to premiere on Monday and the network's version of a soap opera will be a toned down spin off  of HBO's "Sex and The City."

The teen show is based on the stories of Candace Bushnell and was written by Amy B. Harris, who also wrote "Sex and the City" and "Gossip Girl."  The program will revolve around the Connecticut high school days of Carrie Bradshaw, future fashionista and freelance writer. The main role will be played by AnnaSophia Robb.

Bradshaw will narrate the course of events that unfold in her life, which includes events such as losing her virginity to "not the man I had hoped, but to a different man - Manhattan."

She will be accompanied by a three-member group of friends: Maggie (Katie Findlay), a bossy, sexually imposing mix of "Sex and the City" characters Samantha and Miranda, Walt (Brendan Dooling), the in-the-closet boyfriend of Maggie, and Mouse (Ellen Wong),  a geeky Asian that is meant to be similar to Charlotte.

Also on the series is girl magnet Sebastian (Austin Butler) and Bradshaw's troubled younger sibling Dorrit (Stefania Owen).

The pilot episode starts off after the death of Bradshaw's mother and sets the tone for the teen's fashionable tendencies when she notices her late mom's dresses and shoes. For the youngster to make it past her sadness, her sympathetic father arranges a once-a -week internship for her in Manhattan. She ultimately ends up in some less than ideal circumstances, which include assisting a fashion editor crash a party and shoplift a dress.

Since the show delves into the younger years of the Bradshaw character, it takes place in the post-punk era of 1984, as "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Burning Down the House" are on its soundtrack.

"The Carrie Diaries" airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. EST on the CW.
