Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall has defended  the sitcom Him and Us, that she piloted with Elton for ABC, saying it would have made a great series but might have been too racey for some audiences.

The show, which was to have followed the life of a flamboyant gay rock star and his entourage and was loosely based on the Rocket Man, has not been picked up by any of the U.S. broadcasters to be turned into a series.

Kim said, Im not sure why but it didnt work out. It would have been a great series, perhaps the subject matter might have been to much for some people.

Little Britain and Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor Anthony Head was set to play the lead, with Kim as his manager. Elton had even written the theme tune for the show.

But lately, his mind has been on Gnomeo And Juliet. He has finished three tunes with Tim Rice, and plans to write a couple more.
