It looks like Tea Leoni is getting ready to follow in Carrie Bradshaw's well-heeled footsteps: The actress is in talks to star in a new fashion-based series for HBO.
Deadline.com reports that the cable network has designs on "Spring/Fall," a glitzy "Sex and the City"-esque comedy that follows the adventures of style-savvy Manhattanites.
Leoni - whose last TV gig was the '90s sitcom "The Naked Truth" - is producing the project and would play one half of a fashion partnership between two women with completely different approaches to career, family, and friendship.
Adding to the show's glam factor is filmmaker R.J. Cutler (director of last year's Vogue magazine documentary "The September Issue"), who has also signed on as a producer.
