Lauren Graham

ABC has given a green light to a pair of comedy pilots, including one that will mark Gilmore gal Lauren Graham's return to the small screen.

In Let It Go, Graham will play a self-help guru/talk show host whose advice to woman winds up falling on her own deaf ears when her "perfect" beau gives her the boot.

Alex Herschlag of Will & Grace will write the pilot as well as exec-produce with Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Mitch Hurwitz. Graham herself will serve as a producer.

Graham will juggle the lensing of her pilot with her upcoming run in Broadway's Guys and Dolls, which begins previews Wednesday and officially raises its curtain March 1.

The other laffer that got a go-ahead from ABC on Thursday is The New Twenty, which is about two friends in their 40s who are at different stages in life (one has a newborn, the other has a kid entering college).
