The project: Amy Sherman-Palladinos kiss-off to The CW, The Return of Jezebel James The buildup: If youre like us, you really miss Amy Sherman-Palladino and the signature style that made Gilmore Girls a hit with young audiences and critics alike. Jezebel would showcase her sitcom in a story about estranged sisters (played by Parker Posey and Lauren Ambrose) brought together when one asks the other to carry her baby. Hit or miss: Miss. Sitcoms dont suit Sherman-Palladino, whose rapid-fire wit was perhaps lost in the laugh-track format. The show lasted just three episodes before getting yanked.
