Graham will pen the script which, like the semi-autobiographical book on which it is based, follows a young woman nearing the end of a self-imposed time limit to find success as an actress in New York City.

Graham will also executive-produce the project with Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production, Jeff Kleeman (The Change-Up) and Warner Bros. TV, which also produced Gilmore.

The actress currently plays Sarah Braverman on NBC’s Parenthood. She discussed her foray into the publishing world during a recent visit to TVLine’s New York offices. Press PLAY on the video below to hear Graham talk about her book (among other things), then hit the comments with your thoughts!

    I would definitely watch this show!

  2. Cherry says:

    Lauren is great. I have faith that if she’s writing t script we won’t see the usual melodramatic teen centric shows the CW always gives us. I can’t wait!

  3. Newo says:

    She talked about this at length on the Nerdist podcast that was released on Wednesday

  4. Eric7740 says:

    It would be great if she also starred as well!!!

    • Nick says:

      No because then she wouldn’t be on Parenthood

      • HAP says:

        And the only reason she is on Parenthood is that she was a last minute replacement in the role already cast with Maura Tierney. Tierney’s breast cancer diagnosis forced her to withdraw.

    I have to force myself to finish the book before I can express much of an opinion about this! I just can’t get into it.

  6. dude says:

    Hate the title. Hope they change it.

  7. May says:

    That was fast.

  8. Babybop says:

    Now I don’t know if I should read the book. It seems when I watch TV shows based on books, I get really angry about how much they change them. But maybe if she’s writing the script…

  9. Amanda says:

    Good for Lauren, I’m huge fan, I really going to watch this!

  10. Jared says:

    The CW is the perfect network to adapt this book into a series. Looking forward to it.

  11. Elyse says:

    has anyone read the book? how was it?

  12. Bob says:

    Off into obscurity on The CW.

  13. I would definitely watch it!! Lauren is so great!!!
