Cattrall will show some "Skin" for HBO comedy
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Kim Cattrall, the co-star of new box office champ "Sex and the City," is back at HBO with another sex-themed comedy project set in New York.
Cattrall is set to star in and executive produce an adaptation of the British comedy series "Sensitive Skin." She would play a middle-aged wife and mother who rediscovers her sexuality, and begins to question her place in the world and the choices she has made in life.
The original series, which aired on BBC Two for two seasons, starred Joanna Lumley ("Absolutely Fabulous") as a well-to-do ex-model working at an art gallery in London.
"Sensitive Skin" is the latest British format to make its way to HBO's development slate, following the comedy "Suburban Shootouts" and the prison drama "Bad Girls."
A year after "Sex and the City" ended its HBO run in 2004, Cattrall partnered with cable network on the documentary "Kim Cattrall: Sexual Intelligence," which she executive produced and starred in. She reprised her "Sex and the City" role of Samantha in the feature version of the series, which currently rules the North American box office after surprisingly strong opening-weekend sales of $56 million.
Cattrall recently starred in the ITV television movie "My Boy Jack" in her native England.
