I just saw your interview ...

Question: I just saw your interview with Amy Sherman-Palladino on the picket line in NYC. Did she mention anything to you about a future Gilmore Girls' reunion movie?

Answer: Sorry, but I thought it was a little tacky to grill her for scoop while she was taking part in a national protest.

We have always planned to launch The Return of Jezebel James in midseason, and seven episodes are all we need to allow us to program the series through the current broadcast season. We are big fans of Amy Sherman-Palladino, Dan Palladino and the extremely talented cast and are looking forward to airing the show."The news comes on the same day that it was announced that AS-P... read more
