August 27, 2019 / News, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist / Comments Off on Lauren Sets Extraordinary TV Return at NBC
TV LINE – And now for some truly Extraordinary news: Lauren Graham is returning to TV.
The Gilmore Girls and Parenthood vet is joining the cast of NBC’s forthcoming midseason dramedy Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist as a series regular, TVLine has learned. Graham will play the role of Joan, the boss of Jane Levy’s titular computer coder. She replaces Carmen Cusack, who played the character in the pilot. (I hear Graham inked a one-year deal with the show.)
Playlist follows San Francisco-based Zoey who, after an unusual event, begins hearing the innermost wants and desires of the people around her through songs. She initially questions her own sanity, but soon realizes this unwanted curse may just be an incredibly wonderful gift. The cast also includes Skylar Astin (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Ground Floor), Alex Newell (Glee), Mary Steenburgen (The Last Man on Earth), Peter Gallagher (The O.C., Covert Affairs), John Clarence Stewart (Luke Cage) and Andrew Leeds (Bones, Barry).
The gig brings Graham back into the NBC fold following her six-season run on Parenthood, a show which, coincidentally, she also joined as a recast (she replaced Maura Tierney as single mom Sarah Braverman). Playlist marks Graham’s most significant TV role since 2016’s Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix. She also recently appeared in a multi-episode arc on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Grounded and inspiring—and illustrated throughout with drawings by Graham herself—here is a comforting road map to a happy life.

November 13, 2017 / Articles & Interviews, Curb Your Enthusiasm / Comments Off on “Curb Your Enthusiasm” Boss on Why Larry is Ready for a New Love Interest
Lauren Graham entered the HBO comedy as an NBC censor — a “lucky coincidence” one week after David made the lives of real NBC censors’ “miserable” after his ‘SNL’ monologue, says executive producer Jeff Schaffer.
[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday’s episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, “Namaste.”]
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – When Larry David faced backlash over his recent “controversial” Saturday Night Live monologue, many viewers took to social media in his defense to ask, “Have you ever watched an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm?” Sunday’s episode of David’s HBO comedy proved that point.
“That was a wonderfully timed accident. If you didn’t like it before? Here it is again!” Curb executive producer Jeff Schaffer tells The Hollywood Reporter of the response to David’s concentration camp bit on NBC’s SNL. “This episode, especially, we’re talking about things that many people are afraid to talk about.”
Even more aptly timed is the introduction of Larry’s new romantic interest, foul-mouthed NBC censor and single mom Bridget, played by Lauren Graham. Below, Schaffer talks to THR about Graham’s role — another “lucky coincidence that one week after he made NBC censors’ lives miserable on Saturday Night Live, we got to see him actually dating one on Curb” — and what’s ahead for the budding pair.
Why did you want to set up Larry with an NBC censor?
Larry’s had a long history with NBC censors. It’s just a lucky coincidence that one week after he made NBC censors’ lives miserable on Saturday Night Live, we got to see him actually dating one on Curb. Larry thought it would be really funny to be dating a censor and to get turned on by all of the foul language that she says “no” to all day. We shot the scene and it was great, but in the editing room we realized that it wasn’t as much about him getting turned on by it as it was a wonderful, romantic moment. So we put the romantic Parisian music under it and made this very sweet moment for Curb. That’s as romantic as we get: Larry falling for someone as she’s talking about pussy.
Is the real Larry David acting out his own funny fantasy by writing Bridget in as an NBC censor, having dealt with many throughout his career?
It’s a very strange, sweet revenge fantasy for all of the censors. Instead of hating them, what if he actually fell for one? I can say without hesitation that Lauren Graham is playing the coolest NBC censor you will ever meet.
How did you go about casting Graham — were there others who tried out for the role?
The character, Bridget, is going to be around for a while and we knew it was going to be a pretty big part for the final half of the season. So it was important for us that Larry had someone who he felt super-comfortable with. But it had to work both ways. He had to be comfortable saying anything in front of her, and we also had to make sure that it was someone who would be comfortable saying all of these foul things, too. We didn’t actually audition this part. We just talked about who would be great for this, and Larry thought she would be perfect and she was. He can say anything around her and she rolls with it. She was comfortable saying anything on the planet in front of Larry.
What about Graham did David think would work, and what was it like when they shot their scenes?
Lauren and Larry have an effortless connection. She walked in and it felt like they had been dating for a long time, it was so easy. The very first scene of her story was the first time she was on set, and she had to say the filthiest things on the planet. She was laughing and saying, “Oh, my dad was going to be so happy that I was on Curb.” Larry knew her a little bit socially and just got the great vibe that Lauren gives off. She is an incredibly giving and receptive actress and a great listener, so it’s very easy for him to improv with her.
