Parenthood star Lauren Graham has another job in TV. The actress will be adapting her debut novel Someday, Someday, Maybe to be an hour-long television drama series.
After years of acting, Graham released her novel Someday, Someday, Maybe and it immediately became a New York Times bestseller.
Huffington Post reports that the show is produced by Warner Bros. (Warner Bros. produced Gilmore Girls, in which Graham starred for seven years) and Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production. Graham will be writing the script for the new show.
The book is set in the mid-90s. It follows an actress who has three months left in her three year plan to make it big.
Graham will be very busy with writing the script. She will also be in Parenthood season 5, which premieres this fall. She has also been asked to write a second book.
According to Huffington Post, while promoting her book, which came out on April 30, Graham told the Associated Press that the novel “would be a compelling TV show because it lends itself to that serialization.”
