Amy Sherman-Palladino, creator of one of the best TV series ever, Gilmore Girls, no jokeo, maybe yes hyperbolo, is working on a Nanny Diaries adaptation for ABC. How good do you think it will be?

  1. So a couple of nannies talking very, very fast. Got it.

    • One of them gets hooked on prescription drugs, another gets knocked up by the father of the baby she nannies for…

  2. Wasn’t the last Amy Sherman-Palladino show supposed to be terrible? The one with Parker Posey and Lauren Ambrose?

    • It’s on Hulu, and it’s an absolutely riveting train wreck. Worth watching just for the worst example of “sitcom character has a friggin’ enormous apartment” I can think of. I don’t care if you’re playing a powerful editor, Parker Posey, you basically live in a converted gymnasium.

    • It’s really horrible. But this one might not be!

    • She also was an executive producer on Veronica’s Closet…. let’s not forget that. Gilmore Girls is still great, as is Roseanne…. so basically this has a 50/50 shot of being any good.

      • Well, hopefully it will be good. I love Gilmore Girls to the point that I’ve seen pretty much every episode at least five times (not counting the last season which was terrible)!

  3. A diary? I would never have even guessed that she’s literate.

  4. Second day in a row I feel it’s appropriate to reference Gilmore Girls in a comment. Today it will be one of my favorite GG quotes:

    “You cannot keep a room full of Anglo-Saxons waiting for cake this long – they start to form more clubs.”

    • Also, related to this actual post, I hope she turns this into some sort of spin-off where Rory’s half-sister GiGi is all grown up and becomes the nanny. And then Rory can make cameos (clear your entirely too busy schedule, Alexis Bledel) and marble-mouth her way through some lines.

      Less related — has anybody seen the new brilliant Lifetime show, Dance Moms? As batshit-crazily amazing the dance teacher is, I keep wishing that Miss Patty were their overweight, brassy dance teacher instead.

  5. Depends on the casting. Because we all know who would be excellent with kids:

    Make it happen, Hollywood.

  6. I don’t understand the question and I won’t respond to it.

  7. It will be great if by Nanny Diaries, you mean Gilmore Girls season 7 – the way it SHOULD have been.

  8. I never thought in a million years years I’d ever like and now LOVE and now also BE OBSESSED with the Gilmore Girls. So I guess I’ll give it a shot.
