Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall’s next television project will be playing a makeup mogul on the Netflix series Glamorous. The project is set to start shooting in Toronto in July.
Originally ordered to pilot on The CW as part of the 2019 pilot season, Netflix gave Glamorous a ten-episode order, with the non-binary Miss Benny set to star, in April 2022, according to Variety. Miss Benny is an actor, singer, songwriter, and YouTuber. Their TV credits include Netflix’s Fuller House, Hulu’s Love, Victor, and Hulu’s American Horror Stories. The series tells the story of Marco Mejia, played by Miss Benny, a gender non-conforming queer man whose life seems stuck in place until he lands a job with a legendary makeup mogul, Madolyn Addison, played by Cattrall, who helps the character discover what it means to be queer and who he really is.

Kim Cattrall is Not in Sex in the City Spin-Off
Sex in the City fans will be excited to learn about Cattrall’s casting, especially after she passed on the 2017 film and was not cast in the show’s recent spin-off series. Although Cattrall received five Emmy nominations for her portrayal of Samantha Jones on Sex and the City, she decided to retire the character when she passed on the script for the 2017 movie. Because Cattrall passed on the third Sex in the City film, Michael Patrick King re-imagined the franchise without the actress in HBO Max’s reboot, And Just Like That.
“It’s a great wisdom to know when enough is enough,” Cattrall told Variety in May. “I also didn’t want to compromise what the show was to me. The way forward seemed clear.”
Since leaving the Sex in the City franchise, Cattrall has played the narrator Sophie on Hulu’s How I Met Your Father. Additionally, the actress co-stars as the New Orleans grandmother, described as “a martini-soaked, high-society Southern debutant with trailer park roots,” on Peacock’s rebooted Queer as Folk, which also stars Jesse James Keitel, who recently appeared in an episode of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
In addition to her Glamorous role, Cattrall can soon be seen in the new Lionsgate drama, About My Father, co-starring Robert De Niro.
