“Gilmore Girls” star Lauren Graham is headed back to broadcast TV to star in a new Fox comedy pilot. The popular actress, who recently worked on the Netflix sequel “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” will play the lead in “Linda From HR,” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“The pilot was picked up pending casting, with Graham’s commitment to the single-camera comedy lifting the contingency. Graham had received multiple offers this pilot season — all for comedies,” THR reports.
The report adds: “‘Linda From HR’ is a high-concept family comedy that explores the one bad decision that throws Linda’s monotonous, unfulfilled life into an exciting but dangerous tailspin of balancing work life, home life and a secret that could unravel everything. Graham will star as Linda Plugh, a human resources employee. The comedy is part family comedy and part ‘Mr. Robot.'”
