'Sex and the City' was a television show based on the book of the same name written by Candace Bushnell, Scott B. Smith, and Michael Crichton that ran for six seasons between June 6, 1998-February 22, 2004. The series followed the lives of four New York City socialites, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Charlotte York (Kristin Davis), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon). Carrie, who wrote a sex column, narrated each episode with her thoughts on current events in her life and the lives of her friends, putting them into her writing. The columns typically revolved around the women's sex lives, but also touched on the topics of romance, dating, and family. The women often met for meals, during which they would discuss their current predicaments using very open and blunt speech. This crass talk was a key characteristic for which the show became well-known.As the series progressed, each of the women began to settle into adulthood in her own way. Carrie went through an on-again-off-again relationship with Mr. Big (Chris Noth); Miranda gave birth to a son, Brady, and weaved between romance and friendship with Brady's father, Steve (David Eigenberg); Charlotte dealt with her failed marriage to Trey (Kyle MacLachlan) and her second marriage to Harry (Evan Handler), both times having difficulty conceiving a child; and Samantha struggled with leaving her promiscuous life behind by entering into a serious relationship with Smith (Jason Lewis).Series Premiere: June 6, 1998Series Finale: February 22, 2004Network: HBOCreators: Darren Star, Karey KirkpatrickExecutive Producers: Michael Patrick King, Darren Star'Sex and the City' Starred:Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie BradshawKim Cattrall as Samantha JonesKristin Davis as Charlotte YorkCynthia Nixon as Miranda HobbesChris Noth as Mr. BigJohn Corbett as Aidan ShawDavid Eigenberg as Steve BradyEvan Handler as Harry GoldenblattJason Lewis as Smith JerrodLynn Cohen as MagdaMario Cantone as Anthony MarentinoWillie Garson as Stanford BlatchRon Livingston as Jack BergerKyle MacLachlan as Trey MacDougalJames Remar as Richard WrightMikhail Baryshnikov as Aleksandr PetrovskyCandice Bergen as Enid Mead
