Lauren Graham To Play Late Night Host On New Comedy Series
Lauren Graham, with Parenthood in its last season, already has plans for her next project – a sitcom in which she’ll play a late-night host fighting against the patriarchy.

Graham’s new show, Kate On Later, will show her character attempting to break the glass ceiling for women on late night network TV, reported Deadline. The topical subject matter comes on the heels of the recent shakeup in late night that saw white males once again assume the posts up for grabs.
NBC has given a script development deal to Kate On Later, which has Graham on as a co-writer with He’s Just Not That Into You‘s Liz Tuccillo. Graham and Tuccillo will also serve as executive producers alongside talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman.
DeGeneres and Kleeman’s A Very Good Production is also developing comedy I Hate My Teenage Daughter for NBC, which will star Graham’s Parenthood costar Monica Potter. I Hate My Teenage Daughter has a pilot commitment from NBC.
Graham, who previously starred on Gilmore Girls, is currently filming feature film Max with Arrow’s Robbie Amell, Thomas Haden Church and Jay Hernandez.
