Remember back in the Fall when we got all excited because Lauren Graham had signed a big-time development deal with NBC? Well, bad news: That deal was another victim of the writers' strike.
Graham recently told As Seen on TV that she pulled out of the deal because she hadn't been able to actually develop anything by the time the strike began. "I love the comedies on NBC and I felt like that was the right home for me," she said, "but I hadn’t found anything so I put it on hold."
Graham's worked on several movies since the end of Gilmore Girls, but she told As Seen on TV that television is still "the steadiest job and the best writing for women." Between that and the comment about NBC comedies, it sounds like she sure wants to move back to the small screen. It doesn't sound likely that she'll actually be heading the Office spinoff, as some have suggested — but what could you see Graham doing? Comedies or dramas? What network? Do you agree that NBC's comedy style is the right fit for her? If you were her agent, what would you be urging her to do next?
