FAILURE TO LAUNCH

SARAH JESSICA PARKER (Paula) is an actress with uncommon depth and effortless style, who continues to build upon a versatile career in film, television and on stage, which has remarkably spanned over twenty years.

Parker was honored last year with an Emmy award for Best Actress for her role as Carrie Bradshaw on the hit HBO series "Sex and the City.” She was also awarded a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2004 as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award in 2001. In addition to her starring role, Parker was also an executive producer on the show. "Sex and the City” also received the Golden Globe Award for Outstanding Comedy Series three years in a row in 2000, 2001, and 2002 and was honored with an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2001.

Parker most recently starred in the comedy "The Family Stone,” receiving a Golden Globe nomination for her performance opposite Claire Danes, Dermot Mulroney, Luke Wilson and Diane Keaton. Parker follows that up with the romantic comedy "Love Walked In,” in which she stars and also serves as a producer. Finally, she will star and executive produce the drama "Spinning into Butter.”

In addition, HBO and Parker have signed a two-year, exclusive-to-television deal for Parker to develop and produce series through her production company, Pretty Matches Productions.

Parker's other feature credits include David Mamet's satirical comedy, "State and Main,” starring Alec Baldwin and William H. Macy, "Dudley Do-Right,” Paramount's "Til There Was You,” Tim Burton's "Mars Attacks,” "If Lucy Fell,” Paramount's "The First Wives Club” with Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn; "Substance of Fire,” "Miami Rhapsody,” "Ed Wood,” "Hocus Pocus,” "Honeymoon in Vegas,” and her breakthrough role in "LA Story,” opposite Steve Martin.

Parker's early motion picture roles include "Flight of the Navigator,” "Girls Just Want To Have Fun,” "Footloose,” "First Born,” "Somewhere Tomorrow,” and "Rich Kids.”

Parker first gained recognition in the popular CBS series "Square Pegs," which stills runs in syndication. The actress has also had a successful career on stage. Parker starred in DAvid Lindsay-Abaire's sold out run of the quirky comedy "Wonder of the World" at New York's Manhattan Theater Club for which she received a Drama Desk nomination.

She also performed in a successful six month run in the Tony-nominated Broadway production of "Once Upon a Mattress." This followed her critically acclaimed performance with Matthew Broderick in "How To Success in Business Without Really Trying." Prior to these productions, she dazzled audiences in A.R. Gurney's "Sylvia," which also had a sold out run in New York's Manhattan Theater club. She appeared in "The Innocents" on Broadway, directed by Harold Pinter, co-starring Claire Bloom. She also appeared in the Off-Broadway play "By Strouse," which garnered her the role of Annie where she starred on Broadway for two years.
