‘Sex And The City’s Candace Bushnell “Gets No Royalties From Netflix” – Deadline


Candace Bushnell whose novel about 4 Manhattan girls and their love lives impressed a TV phenomenon, has revealed she’ll be receiving no royalties from the deal secured by Netflix just lately to air the six seasons of Sex and the City on its platform.

Bushnell was initially paid $100,000 by HBO for the display rights to her novel, which spawned the TV collection that ran from 1998 to 2004, and a franchise now price a whole lot of tens of millions of {dollars}. And she was forthright in sharing her opinion on the brand new deal going ahead, telling The Times of London newspaper:

“All of these men who are in charge of things, they just keep moving these cards around to make money because every time they move the cards around somebody’s skimming,” she says. “The way men do business is a Ponzi scheme.”

She added: “The percentage of women in the 1 per cent who made their own money is about 3.5 per cent, and that’s shocking.”

Besides the Netflix deal, the franchise is ploughing forward with a 3rd season of its sequel … And Just Like That, following the lives of Carrie, Charlotte and Miranda (Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon). Kim Cattrall, who performed intercourse bomb Samantha within the authentic collection, famously opted out of the reunion, amid a long-simmering feud between her and Parker.

Meanwhile, Bushnell is taking her experiences on the highway, in a stage present filled with anecdote and memoir, referred to as True Tales of Success and Sex and the City, most just lately in Palm Beach – prompting her to verify that, again within the 2000s, she and the world’s most well-known resident Donald Trump have been pleasant, though they now not converse. She stories him complimenting her again within the day on “the best hair in New York”, and he or she added: “He can be very charming if he wants to be. Obviously, that’s how he’s got where he is.”
