Happy 50th Birthday, Lauren Helen Graham! (March 16th, 1967) ✨
Life doesn’t often spell things out for you or give you what you want
exactly when you want it, otherwise it wouldn’t be called life, it would be called vending machine. It’s hard to say exactly when it will
happen, and it’s true that whatever you’re after may not drop down the
moment you spend all your quarters, but someday soon a train is coming. In fact, it may already be on the way. You just don’t know it yet.
I look at the success of ‘A Year in the Life’ and what it did for Netflix, and what I write as a screenwriter is in that same vein of happy romantic comedies. I’m really devoted to that genre as something we need — hopeful, smart stories of having some love — and the idea that it’s just for girls is ridiculous. Nobody really makes romantic comedies anymore, and I don’t get why. I just don’t like watching zombies kill each other. I see how much the new ‘Gilmore Girls’ has meant to the people who loved it, and I feel even more strongly that I want to be a part of things like that.
