Lauren Graham signs deal with the Gilmore Girls network

Lauren Graham’s debut novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe may be, some day, coming to a small screen near you… EW announced the scoop last week that the book is now in development as a television series with the CW, the very same network that aired Gilmore Girls.

I'm Kirk

Lauren’s book was released in April this year, adapted as a screenplay in June and now in August, has been bought up and put in development.  By any stretch of the imagination, that’s not bad going for someone who’s in-between seasons of Parenthood.  Next spring, we fully expect to see her taking the first human steps on Mars.

Any new thoughts on the book?  Can you see her making a Hitchcock-style cameo?  Might there be room for any of those talented Gilmore actors in the Graham TV world?

Thanks to Regis for the heads-up on the EW announcement!

Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    That screen cap is what I needed this morning. Maybe it’s my coffee, but it made me giggle … a LOT. “HOW ARE WE ALL DOING TONIGHT?” “We’re fine, Kirk.”

    “Annika, it’s Pippi!”

    Thanks for the smile this morning!

    Thanks Regis! Weirdly nepotistic… no big post this week since I’m on a road trip in the unexplored North.
