Lauren Graham to Star In New Fox TV Comedy Series

Posted by at 9:01 am on February 24, 2017

Lauren Graham is returning to broadcast television. Fresh off Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival and NBC’s gone but not forgotten family drama Parenthood, the actress has booked the lead role in the Fox comedy pilot Linda From HR.

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.

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.

The casting brings Graham back to broadcast television following her starring role as Sarah Braverman in Jason Katims’ NBC family drama Parenthood. She most recently toplined Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival. Her credits also include a voice role in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs as well as features Evan Almighty and The Pacifier. She’s repped by ICM Partners, John Carrabino Management and Hansen Jacobson.
