'Desperate Housewives' and 'Sex and the City' Creators at War


'Desperate Housewives' and 'Sex and the City' Creators at War


After Marc Cherry's comments about 'Sex and the City' movies during TCA press tour, Michael Patrick King bit back with Cherry's credentials.

The great minds behind two highly-successful series "Desperate Housewives" and "Sex and the City" are feuding over a comment made by the former. "Desperate" creator Marc Cherry recently said he won't make a movie out of the show like "Sex", and with that, he triggered a comment from Michael Patrick King.

Cherry was speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour this week, telling reporters there won't be a big screen version after the eighth and final season. "I'm never sending these gals to Dubai," he said, referring to "Sex and the City 2". "That's all I'm saying. Sex And The City only did, I think, a total of something like 69 episodes. So I always thought the advantage for them was that they hadn't really plumbed the depths of those characters."

King responded with a statement to reporters. He said, "I don't think [Cherry has] ever made a feature film, so I don't know if he knows what that entails, but the reality is my second movie made almost half a billion dollars. It's fine. The reality is I've moved on from that. I'm doing a new show [2 Broke Girls]. It's the number one comedy."

King, however, said that he is not offended by Cherry's comments, saying "It doesn't matter. Here's what happens - you create something in the moment that you feel will be good, and then. ...people's reactions to it or people referencing it years later, it's a compliment."
