Lauren Graham is heading back to broadcast television — this time, for a comedy.
The “Gilmore Girls” and “Parenthood” star will topline the Fox comedy pilot, “Linda From HR,” Variety has learned.
Graham will play the title role of Linda Plugh, an HR employee whose one bad decision throws her monotonous, unfulfilled life into an exciting but dangerous tailspin of balancing work life, home life and a secret that could unravel everything.
“Linda From HR” was picked up with a cast-contingent pilot order last month. With Graham signing on, that has been lifted and the pilot order has been made official.
