ABC gives Lauren Graham comedy a 'Go'
ABC has given a pilot greenlight to "Let It Go" starring Lauren Graham.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Let It Go" focuses on a self-help guru (Graham) who has a hard time following her own teachings when her boyfriend breaks up with her.
The single-camera comedy was written by Alex Herschlag ("Will & Grace") for Sony TV. Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Mitch Hurwitz will executive produce along with Herschlag.
Graham ("Gilmore Girls"), currently prepping for a Broadway run in "Guys & Dolls," will also serve as producer.
In addition, ABC ordered an untitled multi-camera comedy from "Scrubs" veteran Tad Quill. That series focuses on two forty-something friends living very different lives.
ABC is in the midst of a busy period of comedy self-examination.
Earlier this week the network set up a pair of new comedy hours starting in March, a Wednesday pairing of "Scrubs" and "Better Off Ted" and a Thursday union of "In the Motherhood" and "Samantha Who?"
Then it was reported yesterday that the network was considering picking up 13 episodes of "Surviving Suburbia," a castoff from The CW's short-lived programming deal with MRC.
