Set in a storybook Connecticut town populated with an eclectic
mix of everyday folks and lovable lunatics, Gilmore Girls is a
humorous multigenerational series about friendship, family and
the ties that bind.
Thirtysomething Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) has made her share
of mistakes in life, but she has been doing her best to see that
her college-bound daughter - and best friend in the world - Rory
(Alexis Bledel, Tuck Everlasting), doesn't follow in her footsteps.
That may be easier said than done, considering that the two share
the same interests, the same intellect, the same coffee addiction
and the same eyes. Rory is more serious than Lorelai, but there
are tendencies, especially in the love department, that clearly
indicate she is her mother's daughter. From the beginning, this
unique mother-daughter team has been growing up together. Lorelai
was just Rory's age when she became pregnant and made the tough
decision to raise her baby alone.
Gilmore Girls was the first series to make it to air supported
by the Family Friendly Forum's script development fund. An initiative
between some of the nation's top advertisers and The WB, the program
is intended to offer a greater array of compelling family programming
on network television. The strong and loving mother-daughter relationship
portrayed in Gilmore Girls reflects the growing reality of this
new type of American family.Melissa McCarthy
