Joy for all those who at some point in our lives we have seen some of the great episodes of "Gilmore Girls" and is that what was its star, Lauren Graham seems to be back on television and in particular to NBC and to participate in his new comedy, "Parenthood."
The truth is that this series, based on the movie of the same title in 1989, had already started shooting and actually had his cast completed, but that was when Maura Tierney had to leave his role as a cancer was diagnosed as that first made him decide to delay the shooting and then finally had to leave the series because it still has not recovered.
That's when Helen Hunt was the name that sounded to play the character of Sarah, a single mother with a teenage daughter. The negotiations with Hunt did not come to fruition and it appears that Jason Katims, creator of the series, then thought of Lauren Graham.
And how would not think Graham if she was being Lorelai Gilmore for seven seasons? One of the most famous mothers of adolescent television now would be perfect for "Parenthood", something that could well bring back to prove his good gift for comedy to eliminate risk of being pigeonholed.
Anyway hopefully this new series will soon see the light (scheduled for release in March 2010) because they only appear Lauren Graham who participate in it but other "famous" performers like Peter Krause, Craig T. Nelson and Monica Potter.
