`Sex and the City' author developing NBC series

Writer Candace Bushnell of "Sex and the City" fame is developing an hourlong series for the U.S. television network NBC about the familiar topic of women in New York, the network said Tuesday.

Based on Bushnell's novel "Lipstick Jungle," the series is part of the network's development slate for the 2006 fall season, an NBC spokesman said.

The novel is "so strong .... It's a really fun character piece," NBC Universal Television executive Katherine Pope told trade paper Daily Variety.
