Get ready to meet the young Samantha Jones!
When The Carrie Diaries returns for its second season, Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) is spending her summer in the city, where she'll meet future bestie Samantha Jones (Lindsey Gort), the cousin of her high school nemesis Donna LaDonna (Chloe Bridges). How different is Sex and the City's resident vixen when she's in her 20s? TVGuide.com caught up with Gort, who talks about the pressure of filling Kim Catrall's high-heeled shoes, how she almost didn't get the role and how Carrie and Samantha's relationship will evolve to what fans know today:
Even though Walt dumped Maggie and kicked off an unbelievable relationship with resident bad girl Donna — she's his beard — The Carrie Diaries will finally jump-start Walt's (Brendan Dooling) journey ...

Carrie Bradshaw finally had the perfect life — that is, as long as she was able to keep her suburban teenager/glamorous career gal personas separate. But during Monday's episode of The Carrie Diaries, her two worlds collided and the lies came to an end.
Ditching her high school life in Connecticut to celebrate closing her first issue as an intern at Interview, Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) accidentally...
Long before she met her Prince Charming in a man named Mr. Big, Carrie Bradshaw's adolescent life was still something of a swoon-inducing Cinderella story. That's the first impression from the CW's new The Carrie Diaries (8/7c, repeated an hour later), a likeably schmaltzy "prequel" to Sex and the City that finds the CW hewing closely to the ABC Family model that has lately stolen much of the channel's young-adult thunder.
Stephen Amell, AnnaSophia Robb
The CW has ordered five new series, including the hotly anticipated Sex and the City prequel and the Green Arrow origins story, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
Based on the novel by Candace Bushnell, The Carrie Diaries features a younger Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) as she comes of age in the '80s, asking her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan. Bushnell will executive-produce alongside Gossip Girl duo Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, Len Goldstein and Sex and the City writer Amy Harris. Stefania Owen, Austin Butler, Matt Letscher, Brendan Dooling, Freema Agyeman, Katie Findlay, Chloe Bridges and Ellen Wong will also star.
Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato
Reaching the set of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam — tucked away in the wilderness about an hour outside of Toronto — requires passing through three separate security checkpoints manned by armed Mounties. It seems a little absurd, right up until a paparazzo darts out of the woods or the unmistakable wail of prowling tween girls pierces the calm. What precious commodity is being guarded behind those roadblocks? The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato, at work on the sequel to their megahit Disney Channel movie Camp Rock.
Nick Jonas and Chloe Bridges
Joining the cast of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, actress Chloe Bridges had no clue just how huge a project it was. "I had no idea what a phenomenon Camp Rock had become and it blew me away," she tells TVGuide.com. The 18-year-old plays Dana Turner, who arrives from Camp Rock's rival camp to have a star-crossed romance with Nate (Nick Jonas). Bridges talks about why her role is the "Switzerland" of all the characters and how she accidently pushed Jonas, 17, into freezing cold lake water.

Camp Rock 2: Demi Lovato
Who says the Disney Channel is just for kids? When its latest original movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam premieres, there will be plenty of reasons for adults to tune in.

It's up to her and rock stars Connect 3, played by the Jonas Brothers, to save their turf. From the music and choreography to first loves, find out why people of all ages should Rock out from the stars themselves.
No. 1: A nod to Classic Rock
Kevin Jonas (Jason) tells TVGuide.com about the pop-culture references in the film that an older generation will appreciate. "We have images from records, like a couple [of] Bruce Springsteen, Band on the Run ... They're in the middle of the scene and all of a sudden it'll happen, and you either catch it for a second, or it'll go away."
