The latter Parker plays Lisa Todd Wexley in “And Just Like That …,” the upcoming HBO Max “Sex and the City” revival series that has folks more than ready. HBO Max is owned by CNN’s parent company.
Parker No. 1 posted a photo showing her and costars Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis in a group hug with the newcomer Parker.
“Oh so fine,” the caption reads. “I’d sing along to 70’s love songs with this trio deep into any night. @justlikethatmax I’ll see you ladies tomorrow!”
HBO Max said only that “Nicole Ari Parker plays ‘Lisa Todd Wexley,’ a Park Avenue mother of three and documentarian.”
The network, responding to a CNN inquiry, also offered details of the three other characters added to the show: Sara Ramírez stars as “Che Diaz” (they/them), a non-binary, queer, stand-up comedian that hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regularly featured; Sarita Choudhury who plays “Seema Patel,” a single, self-made powerhouse Manhattan real estate broker; and Karen Pittman, who plays “Dr. Nya Wallace,” a brilliant, challenging Columbia Law professor.
Nicole Ari Parker is African American, and if she is now part of the popular quartet, that’s a big deal.
