Lauren Graham's pick to star in TV adaptation of her novel? Mae Whitman

Gilmore Girls fans were thrilled when EW learned Lauren Graham’s novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe was in development at The CW as a one-hour drama.

The story, about a young woman with six months left on her three-year plan to make a career as an actress in New York City, seems a perfect fit for the network. And now more exciting news: Graham’s Parenthood co-star (and — Her? — Arrested Development fan favorite!) Mae Whitman read for the lead role.

“I brought Mae [Whitman] in to perform for the network,” Graham shared with EW. “I didn’t want people to think, she’s you but she’s not you. She is a muse for me, but she has a job and I would never – nor can I – pull her from that job. We’re all here at Parenthood through next year. It’s not at all up to me – but she is exactly the kind of person I would picture in that she is unique and talented.” READ FULL STORY

Last night, the minds and bodies behind the great Braverman clan took to the stage at PaleyFest to discuss everything from a potential season five to the reason why Mark and Sarah will never work (Hint: Jason Ritter is moving to a new show, where he’s dating Lauren Graham’s one-time TV daughter, Alexis Bledel).

Parenthood actors Craig T. Nelson, Max Burkholder, Miles Heizer, Mae Whitman, Sam Jaeger, Erika Christensen, Joy Bryant, Dax Shepard, Lauren Graham, Jason Ritter, Monica Potter, and Peter Krause joined executive producer Jason Katims for an hour-long conversation about the story lines that made us cry our eyes out for all of season four.

Press Tour Scoop: Lauren Graham at home on 'Parenthood'

Lauren Graham is back at press tour promoting a TV series and, suddenly, all is right with my world.

'Gilmore' creator's stunning reveal: 'I had a different path planned for Rory'

gilmore_lMy ongoing mission to get Amy Sherman-Palladino to cough up those elusive final four Gilmore Girl words is finally starting to bear some juicy fruit. Not that particular plum, no, but at least for the first time, she’s revealing details about what the series finale would’ve involved, had she stuck with the show. Hey, it’s a freaking start.

“I wanted different things for Rory,” confesses AS-P. “I wanted her to follow a different sort of path… [go] off on her own adventure, which I guess she sort of did. I haven’t [actually] seen the last season, but I heard about it from other people.” READ FULL STORY

Question: G’day! How about you share some Glee scoop? —Vivian
Ausiello:
Okay, mate. There’s a crazy-ass rumor going around that Will will discover Terri’s faux baby plot, dump her, and then, in a moment of passion, get her pregnant for real! The really crazy-ass part? Sources confirm that two of those three things are true! And the other one? Not so much.

Question: I loved the Rachel-Puck hook-up in last week’s Glee! Is this something that the show may continue in the future? —Tiana
Ausiello:
Not in the immediate future. In the immediate future, Puck is mostly into Quinn. Which is sweet considering he knocked her up and all.

Question: I have a really fun assignment for you, Aus. Create a chart listing every Lost alum there ever was, and then next to their names, tell us where things stand in terms of them returning for the final season. I just know how much you love to make lists. —Steven
Ausiello:
I have a better idea: Let’s scrap the chart and forget we ever had this conversation. In return, I’ll share this Lost nugget with you: I hear Team Darlton will give us the answer to one of Lost‘s oldest and most confounding mysteries. And I’m pretty sure it’s an answer none of us expected to get. READ FULL STORY

Exclusive: 'Gilmore' girl Lauren Graham on her big TV comeback

Lauren-Graham-interview_lSometimes the way the TV biz works leaves me scratching my head, going, “Huh?” Other times, I get it… it’s fate. This is definitely one of those. Because although ABC passed on Lauren Graham’s comedy pilot, she’s still returning to the tube this season, on NBC’s buzzy Parenthood series. And here, in her first interview since agreeing to step in for Maura Tierney as single mom Sarah, the Gilmore Girls gabber explains why she decided to join the all-star ensemble, why her new character is nothing like Lorelai, and what her new gig means for that much-discussed-by-me Gilmore movie.

Why did you decide to take the part?
LAUREN GRAHAM: It’s the best thing I’ve read. It’s was really that simple.

Any trepidation about signing another long-term TV commitment?
GRAHAM: Yeah. I’ve been out of that work for, I guess it’s been two-and-half years now. I did a Broadway show, I did three movies… I [enjoyed] working freelance like that. So, strangely, as much as I’ve been looking for a series almost since I ended that last one, it was almost like, “But wait… ” I’ve enjoyed [the variety] of projects I’ve done. That’s hard to think about giving up. READ FULL STORY
