Finally, Amy is back with a new show! And on a channel that is already a proven fit for her (ABC Family airs reruns of GG). The premise found on IMDB sounds interesting!

"Michelle, a Las Vegas showgirl marries a man on a whim and moves to his sleepy coastal town where she winds up working alongside her new mother-in-law at her dance school."

In an interview ASP said this was important to her because she was a dancer for many, many years and knows that world inside and out.

Actually just saw the promo for this on ABC Family (during a rerun of GG, go figure) and I'm pretty interested. I'm not usually into ABC Family original shows (their reruns rock) and I'm not really into dance shows but it looks very ASP so who knows, maybe I'll tune in.

The first episode premiered tonight (well, last night) and it was wonderful. Almost felt like an alternate reality of Gilmore Girls. Kelly Bishop is in it and plays a very different character from Emily Gilmore, but with a surprisingly similar relationship dynamic to the main character. Even the actress that played Gypsy is in it! The dialog is fast and witty and funny, it has quirky townsfolk... it really feels like it takes place in the same world as Gilmore Girls. I'm glad to see ASP back in fine writing form! Cheesy

I haven't seen it yet but I swear every time the previews for it play, I see Lorelai. It's a bit bittersweet. I'll watch it by the summer's end. I HAVE to!

I can totally hang with this show. It's actually based on a novel by an American Ballet Company dancer, and the technical details are all grisly and accurate. Of course I was thinking about GG when I saw it the first time, and I'll be honest, I might never have watched it without the Dorothy Parker label. But I'm already hooked on the characters and the story so far is nutty and sweet like Gilmore Girls, but also completely unexpected and complex.

Has anyone else seen it? I think Drella was the neighbor in the Pilot.
