Amy Jokes About Lorelai’s Last Words

Jezjameslp1Any sesh with writer-producer Amy Sherman-Palladino is always a treat for the ear, and eye if you share her hat fetish. She talks as fast and with a rapier wit; she is her own best character. Amy and her husband Dan Palladino are up for the big second act following the WB Network’s beloved “Gilmore Girls” in the coming season with the new Fox half-hour “The Return of Jezebel James,” starring Parker Posey as a successful book publisher who hires her slacker younger sister to carry her baby after learning that she cannot conceive.

It’s hard to believe that anyone could channel Amy’s spirit and words as well as “Gilmore’s” Lauren Graham, but Posey surely does with her own trademark sweetly goofy free-spirit. Posey, known as the queen of indie film, said she’d never seen “Gilmore Girls” but was taken with the “Jezebel James” script when she read it in a laundromat in Albuquerque, New Mexico while filming the upcoming feature “The Eye.” Posey had no experience in series TV but she’s found she likes the rhythms of the work on the Gotham-based production. It’s in the get-it-done spirit of indie pics done on a shoestring budget.
“I like to work,” Posey said. “This work is tight…clear…calm…assertive…like (dog trainer) Cesar Millan. I don’t want to go in my trailer and be all moan-y all the time. You get bored when you’re working on big movies and not doing anything. I really like this” shooting sked, Posey said.
