The WB Network is investing in one of its stars, and that's Good for Lauren Graham. The star of the network's hit series Gilmore Girls has created the Good Game production banner and has set up shop at Warner Bros. Television. Under the new banner, she will develop and executive produce both comedy and drama projects.
Graham's deal at WBTV will last as long as the studio continues to produce Gilmore Girls. The agreement provides a small development fund as well as covers overhead for the company. In addition, Graham has hired writer-producer Sydnie Suskind to serve as the the new shingle's vice president, with the charge of running the day-to-day operations.
Good Game, which received a commitment from the WB netlet to develop several projects per year, will work on developing series for multiple networks, though it's likely that many of them will take shape at the Frog. The company also has several projects in the works, including a musical series entitled Sing, from writer Kathy Ebel, at the WB and an untitled comedy from Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger centering on a fish-out-of-water male nanny.
As for Graham herself, she will soon be seen on the big screen starring with Billy Bob Thornton in Dimension Films' Bad Santa, but she is committed to be present at her new company and have a hand in developing her new projects. International Creative Management reps the company.
