Amy Sherman-Palladino, who created, wrote and executive produced the seven-season mother-daughter network show Gilmore Girls is taking her first steps into cable with a new project for HBO.
The as-yet-untitled dramedy will be written by Sherman-Palladino and focus on three adult sisters, all writers, living in the same apartment block with their domineering mother who lavishes her affections on their useless brother.
“It’s a story of love, hate, family — and finding the perfect opening line,” Sherman-Palladino said.
I have to put my hands up here and say that I’ve only seen about ten minutes of Gilmore Girls, so I’m not really in a place to judge whether Sherman-Palladino’s new project is one to be excited about. I know she has a reputation for snappy, fast-paced dialogue (which presumably on HBO would be rather more explicit than network!)
No word yet on when to expect this one to air, or whether they’re making a pilot or going straight to series.
