Sarah Jessica Parker: Sex and the Square Pegs

Former Cincinnati resident Sarah Jessica Parker talks about her career – and why the new "Sex and The City" movie almost wasn’t made – on "Inside the Actors Studio today (8 p.m., Bravo). It's a safe bet that host James Lipton will recap her network TV career, which started with CBS' short-lived comedy, "Square Pegs" (1982-83), which will be released on DVD Tuesday.

Parker, 43, was born in Nelsonville, Ohio, (near Athens), and lived in Cincinnati for most of her first 12 years. She attended Clifton Elementary School, and made her TV debut in a Channel 5 "Young People’s Special" production of "The Little Match Girl" in 1974, at age 9. She left Cincinnati for New York in 1977, and joined the cast of "Annie" on Broadway in 1978. (She sings her audition song for "Annie" for Lipton on the show tonight.)

She was one of the high school misfits on "Square Pegs," in a cast that included Jami Gertz ("Still Standing") and Tracy Nelson ("Father Dowling Mysteries"). Guest stars included Bill Murray, Martin Mull, the Doors drummer John Densmore, Devo, and the Waitresses (they did the theme). The 20 shows will be released on three discs.

"Sex and the City: The Movie" opens in theaters Friday, May 30.
