I’ve been loving my time inhabiting the world of Gilmore Girls. This past weekend, my muse decided to show up, and apparently, she drinks as much coffee as a Gilmore, because she did NOT let me rest. I got a LOT written on my spec script, and I wanted to share some brief tidbits of what it is I’m writing about.
Episode Title: Always a Bridesmaid
Episode Date/Timing: June 2016 (9 years post series 7 finale)
Episode “Structure”: Reunion/Mini-Movie. It will be longer than a traditional episode would be, but it won’t be a full 2.5-hour length motion picture (I don’t think…). I’m basically taking the idea of what’s happening in real life (four new episodes, set in the here-and-now) and doing it more in the structure of the Dawson’s Creek series finale (jump forward in time, one standalone piece that encompasses everything).
Gilmore Boys? Yes, Dean, Jess, and Logan (and maybe some others) all find their way into the script.
Other Characters? Besides the main cast (Emily, Lorelai, Rory, Luke), I’ve already brought back Pari & Doyle, Michel, Sookie, Miss Patty & Babette, and Kirk. I have plans for some others, and some that I’m not sure how to work them in (Mrs. Kim, for example – love her character, and would love to write her, but I don’t know how she’d fit!).
Tiny taste of what’s to come? Okay, okay…
