‘Gilmore Girls’ Creator Brings ‘Nanny Diaries’ to ABC


Some possibly exciting news, depending on how you feel about extremely fast-paced dialogue that’s chock full of pop culture references. According to our friends at Vulture, Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is working on a TV adaptation of The Nanny Diaries for ABC. While the 2007 film adaptation of the book — which starred Scarlett Johansson, Laura Linney, and Paul Giamatti — is currently sitting at a not-so-pretty 33% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, we could actually picturing this urban fairy tale working out on the small-screen as long as Alexis Bledel agrees to play the nanny and Lauren Graham quits Parenthood to play Mrs. X (we’re only half kidding). Even if that doesn’t happen, we’ll probably get sucked into watching a few episodes, just like we did with Sherman-Palladino’s last effort, The Return of Jezebel James. How about you?
