Lauren Graham to Star in, Co-Write NBC Comedy About Late-Night TV

Parenthood‘s not over yet, but Lauren Graham has already lined up her next gig.

The Gilmore Girls alum will headline and co-write Kate on Later, a comedy in development at NBC, our sister site Deadline reports.

The single-camera project, which has a script commitment at the network, follows Graham’s Kate as she is afforded the opportunity of becoming one of the only women in late-night television.

The actress will co-write with Liz Tuccillo (He’s Just Not That Into You) and will executive-produce alongside Ellen DeGeneres’ Very Good Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    What happened to the Someday Someday Maybe project?

  2. Lucy B says:

    What happened with the development of her book, Someday, Someday, Maybe as a television series?
    (if you know, thanks!)

  3. Tran says:

    Fingers crossed for a Gilmore Girls reunion.

  4. alistaircrane says:

    Last time Lauren was on Ellen, Ellen discussed wanting to do a show with her. Glad to see it’s becoming a reality!

  5. Alana says:

    Does this mean that Unfamous (the Someday, Someday Maybe adaptation) is dead? That could have been so good! And it would have been the perfect post-Parenthood role for Mae Whitman… :(

  6. Amie says:

    Because it’s been so long since 30 Rock had that same plot?

  7. c-mo says:

    This is very good news especially in light of the CW passing on something that could have been great for them…but apparently their stupidity is NBC’s great fortune. I will definitely watch this! Hopefully there will be some GG reunions on the show, that would be fun.

    • alistaircrane says:

      That show would not have been great for the CW. It didn’t their brand at all.

    • You Know says:

      The premises of Someday, Someday is at least a couple years too late for CW’s brand, back when it was all about good looking young adult drama. CW is all about supernatural/sci-fi fantasy these days.

  8. Steven says:

    I would watch the crap out of this!

  9. Shira says:

    That makes me so happy! The idea of it, the people involved, her being co- writer and seems so right for her! Go, Lauren!!

  10. Eric says:

    I’m happy for Lauren, but it also makes Parenthood’s demise feel so much more real.

  11. David4 says:

    I think she would be great as a late night host. There are several that should be fired or are leaving soon, she should be one of their replacements.

  12. Ellie says:

    I really hope this becomes not only a reality, but a huge success! Lauren Graham is not only a phenomenal actress, but she is equally hilarious! Cannot wait to see it!!!

  13. Donna Fisher says:

    Ellen and Lauren. What a great combination. Can’t wait.

  14. Tom says:

    Wouldn’t it be great if this could approach the brilliance that was 30 Rock?

  15. Lori says:

    Just love her

  16. Grey's Fan says:

    Still think L.G. would be perfectly cast as Kathleen Shepherd on Grey’s Anatomy – Derek’s fourth sister, the psychologist.
