Amy Sherman-Palladino, the genius behind Gilmore Girls, has signed on to write and executive-produce a dramatic comedy on HBO and I’m really excited for her. So many of the shows on that network are top-notch and I am hoping that she will get the chance to create another series that will not only entertain audiences but will also gain her the recognition she deserves.
The show will follow the lives of three adult sisters who, according to the Hollywood Reporter, are “all writers sharing the same upper east side apartment building, and their mother, a domineering literary lioness who reserves most of her affections for their ne’er-do-well brother.”
That could really set the tone for some intricate relationship dynamics between the characters! “It’s a story of love, hate, family — and finding the perfect opening line,” Sherman-Palladino said.
This is the first time Sherman-Palladino will be working on a show for a cable network but it already sounds like she’s off to a good start!
Let’s hope it’s better than her short-lived FOX comedy The Return of Jezebel James… though I think casting – not writing – was at fault for that failure.
