Lauren Graham returns to primetime

'Gilmore Girls' star leads untitled ABC comedy

“Gilmore Girls” star Lauren Graham is looking to make the leap back into primetime.

ABC has given a production commitment to a new comedy starring Graham, who will play a self-help guru who teaches women how to live a stress-free life — but struggles to follow her own advice when her boyfriend dumps her.

Untitled half-hour comes from scribe Alex Herschlag (“Will and Grace”), who will exec produce along with the folks behind the Tantamount shingle — Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Mitch Hurwitz. Hagada Hey and Tantamount will produce, while Sony Pictures TV — where Tantamount is based — is the studio.

Graham will also serve as a producer on the sitcom.

Project reps Graham’s first major TV gig since “Gilmore Girls” went off the air in 2007. Thesp spent seven seasons on the show.

The new laffer also reps a reunion between Graham and ABC. The actress got her big break on the Alphabet net starring opposite Molly Ringwald and Jenna Elfman in the short-lived “Townies.”

Graham is about to make her Broadway debut starring in a revival of “Guys and Dolls.” Legit production starts its previews in February and opens in March.

Actress also stars in the upcoming film “Arlen Faber,” which was just accepted into the Sundance fest.

As for Herschlag, scribe is currently working on the Fox animated comedy “Sit Down, Shut Up,” also from Tantamount.
