Tony Award-winner Sara Ramírez (Grey’s Anatomy, Madam Secretary, Monty Python’s Spamalot) has joined the HBO Max Sex and the City revival And Just Like That…, the new chapter of the groundbreaking HBO series. Ramirez will star as Che Diaz (they/them) a non-binary, queer, stand-up comedian that hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regularly featured. Che is a big presence with a big heart whose outrageous sense of humor and progressive, human overview of gender roles has made them and their podcast very popular.
The ten-episode, half-hour series is scheduled to begin production in New York this summer.
And Just Like That… follows Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), 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.
“Everyone at And Just Like That… is beyond thrilled that a dynamically talented actor such as Sara Ramírez has joined the Sex and the City family. Sara is a one-of-a-kind talent, equally at home with comedy and drama – and we feel excited and inspired to create this new character for the show.”
Executive producers include Parker, Davis, Nixon, Julie Rottenberg, Elisa Zuritsky, John Melfi, and Michael Patrick King. Writers include King, Samantha Irby, Rachna Fruchbom, Keli Goff, Julie Rottenberg, and Elisa Zuritsky. The HBO series Sex and the City was created by Darren Star and based on the book by Candace Bushnell.
