Candace Bushnell, Author Of ‘Sex And The City’, Set To Receive No Royalties From Netflix.
According to Deadline, the creator of the Sex and the City franchise and author of the novels, Candace Bushnell, has recently revealed to audiences that she will receive no royalties from the recent deal for Netflix to air Sex and the City on the platform. HBO originally paid Bushnell $100,00 in order to air the novel as a television show. The franchise itself is now worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
Deadline stated that Bushnell told The Times of London, “All of these men who are in charge of things, they just keep moving these cards around to make money because every time they move the cards around somebody’s skimming. The way men do business is a Ponzi scheme. The percentage of women in the 1 percent who made their own money is about 3.5 percent, and that’s shocking.”
Along with the news of the series being aired by Netflix, the sequel to the series And Just Like That… is moving on to its third season. IMDB says that “The series follows Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.”
However, Deadline revealed that the reason that Samantha (Kim Cattral) did not return is due to a fued she had with Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays Carrie.
