‘Gilmore Girls’ to Air on UP This Fall

The “Gilmore Girls” has found a new home.

UP has acquired all seven seasons of the family drama from Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, the network announced Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour. The 153 episodes will begin airing on UP this fall.

“We’ve acquired one of the most beloved shows in family TV history, and we are thrilled to add such a critically acclaimed family series to our lineup,” said UP exec VP and general manager Amy Winter in a statement.

“‘Gilmore Girls’ is a fan-favorite series that retains a very large and passionate following,” added UP senior VP of programming Sophia Kelley, who negotiated the deal. “The strong and loving mother-daughter relationship portrayed in ‘Gilmore Girls’ is a beautiful testament to the wonderful power of family drama. The series is a perfect fit for our brand of family entertainment.”

“Gilmore Girls,” starring Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Melissa McCarthy, Keiko Agena, Yanic Truesdale, Scott Patterson, Liza Weil, Jared Padalecki, Milo Ventimiglia, Sean Gunn and Kelly Bishop, aired from 2000-2007, starting on the WB before moving to the CW. It followed fast-talking mother and daughter duo Lorelai and Rory Gilmore in their storybook Connecticut town.

The drama was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who served as executive producer with Gavin Polone and Daniel Palladino.
