In the next chapter to the groundbreaking and loved series about women navigating life’s journey in the city that never slows down, New York City. Tony Award winning and Emmy nominated actor Sara Ramirez – known best for the role of orthopedic surgeon, “Dr Callie Torres,” on the hit ABC medical drama Grey’s Anatomy – is joining Sex and the City alum Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis in the Max Original AND JUST LIKE THAT.
Follow “Carrie” (Sarah Jessica Parker), “Miranda” (Cynthia Nixon) and “Charlotte” (Kristin Davis) as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s.
Ramírez will star as “Che Diaz” (they / them), a non-binary, queer, stand-up comedian that hosts a podcast on which Carrie Bradshaw is regularly featured. Che is a big presence with a big heart whose outrageous sense of humor and progressive, human overview of gender roles has made them and their podcast very popular.
“Everyone at ‘And Just Like That…’ is beyond thrilled that a dynamically talented actor such as Sara Ramírez has joined the ‘Sex and the City’ family.” says executive producer Michel Patrick King, “Sara is a one-of-a-kind talent, equally at home with comedy and drama – and we feel excited and inspired to create this new character for the show.”
As a voice for equity and inclusion, Sara Ramírez was awarded the Ally For Equality Award by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation in 2015, and the Trailblazers Award by the New York LGBT Center in 2017. They have also been acknowledged by the City of Los Angeles as a queer bisexual Mexican-American activist and artist working across intersections to advance liberation. In June of 2019, Ramírez performed “Over the Rainbow” at the NYC opening Ceremony of World Pride.
In addition to their role as a member of the True Colors United’s Board of Directors, Ramírez supports many non-profit and community organizations including, but not limited to: FAMILIA: Trans Queer Liberation Movement, Transgender Law Center, Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project, Rainbow Bridge Asylum Seekers, The Okra Project, The Frances Thompson Education Foundation, Bisexual Resource Center, BOP, TransLatin@ Coalition, OLTT, NDLON, Mujerez De Maiz, The National LGBTQ Task Force and The Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego LGBT Centers.
The ten-episode, half-hour series is scheduled to begin production in New York this summer.
