‘And Just Like That’: First Look At Nicole Ari Parker and Karen Pittman In Upcoming ‘Sex and the City’ Reboot (Teaser)

The first teaser for HBO Max’s highly-anticipated Sex and The City revival titled And Just Like That has arrived. Nicole Ari Parker (Empire) and Karen Pittman (The Morning Show) have joined the besties trio.

And Just Like That follows Carrie, Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte (Kristin Davis) “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”.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Ari Parker will play Lisa Todd Wexley, a Park Avenue mother of three and Carrie Bradshaw’s new best friend.  Pittman (The Morning Show) will appear as Dr. Nya Wallace, a brilliant yet challenging Columbia Law professor.

HBO’s chief Casey Bloys, producer/star Parker and showrunner Michael Patrick King decided to add the new faces. Bloys told TV Line earlier this year they did not want “to tell a story with all-white writers or an all-white cast,” and that the creators are “being very, very conscious about understanding that [the show’s] New York has to reflect the way New York looks today.”

The fourth member of Sex and the City’s core cast, Kim Cattrall, isn’t involved in the follow-up after falling out with her co-star Parker. In 2019, Cattrall expressed her readiness to leave her character behind in an interview with the Observer. “I went past the finish line playing Samantha Jones because I loved Sex and the City,” she said. “It was a blessing in so many ways, but after the second movie, I’d had enough. I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”

The HBO Max revival of Sex and the City will debut with its first two episodes on Dec. 9, Eleven years after the second ‘SATC’ movie was released. The remaining eight episodes will roll out weekly.

Watch the teaser for the series below.

by Betti Halsell, senior staff writer

Multidimensional artist Adeshola Adeoye, better known as Sholuv, increased the decibels of hope in his latest project, “Zero,” produced through OPXS BOIS, the three-track album was released on Tuesday, Dec.20.  As a compound expression of art through various mediums, Sholuv revealed the golden thread holding the body of work together and musically elevates one’s mind.

“It’s a prelude project, and preludes start at zero,” Sholuv declared as he signed part of his Gi, the top half of a karate uniform. The notable artist reflected on the night as his exclusive showing of the album came to a close.

Sholuv expanded his thoughts by referencing the process of creating anime, the complexities of building a world out of the realm of imagination, and then releasing it. Sholuv described this album as a lore or a collection of nuances that are significant to understand the rest of the collection of art.

Sholuv shared three songs and one bonus track with invite-only attendees. The vibrations of each track felt like they traveled around the world. The transformative lyrics and storytelling were vivid; it’s a new level of painting a mental picture without a brush. Sholuv has expanded his art across his fashion with his lifestyle brand, Optimixts, and continues to grow as a producer and videographer.

Songs like “25,” interlock cinematic touches on the beat with raw power in the verses. While introducing the track, Sholuv stated, “This was me, describing myself as a 25-year-old and who I am as a man, and really looking optimistic—when it comes to everything I’m involved with.”

Sholuv has five previous projects that include “For Tha Honey’s,” “Sounds from Tha Den,” and “.”

OPXS BOIS’ artist manager, Scoop, considered the growth he witnessed from Sholuv; he reflected on the composition of the newly released project and stated, “This project for Sholuv is a real testimony to the growth of his production style and rhyme scheme,” he continued, “his subject matter has always been there, but this project is eye-opening to his style of verbiage.”

“Zero” is out now on all major platforms. Follow Sholuv on Instagram and turn up the volume of hope through his aromatic sounds.
