Why an HBO late-night writer penned a Sopranos-Sex and the City crossover script
Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas writer Eliza Cossio has received a lot of positive feedback since releasing her fan fiction script last week via Twitter. In an interview with Slate, Cossio says she decided to write the script after first watching The Sopranos four years ago and binging on Sex and the City for the first time last summer. "An early version of this script was just very, very wacky," she says. "The Sopranos theme music would play in the middle of a scene, Big was shot right in front of Carrie, and Carrie didn’t care. A lot of it was not really rooted in what the shows’ realities were. It was like a complete satirical thing. I got a really good note from my friend when I was in the early stages. He was just like, 'Follow the form of the show.' That really is what opened up the writing process for me and made me handle the shows’ fragility a little more, like I wanted to be careful with these shows."
