Sarah Jessica Parker commits to next post-'Sex and the City' project

Sarah Jessica Parker is helming a HBO comedy pilot called "Washingtonienne" that was just recently cast. Rachael Taylor, Amanda Walsh and Bitsie Tulloch ("quarterlife") are the three female leads.

The show, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is this:

"Based on the semi-autobiographical book by Jessica Cutler about the sexploits of a low-level female congressional staffer with powerful men on Capitol Hill. "Washingtonienne" revolves around the professional and personal lives of three smart, sophisticated 28-year-old girls working on the Hill.

At the center is Jackie (Taylor), a recent transplant from New York who has decided to pursue a career as a speechwriter but first must work her way up from the intern desk.

Her mentor in the ways of Washington is her old college friend April (Tulloch), who has been on the Hill since graduation and lives a prematurely middle-age lifestyle with a boyfriend who seems more in love with his flashy senator boss than with her.

And finally there's Laura (Walsh), a small-town girl whose workaholic ways often come at the expense of a social life and who is constantly defending her Republican views to her liberal friends."

Based on synopsis alone, it sounds sort of interesting, but another version of "Lipstick Jungle" or "Sex and the City." Thoughts?
