Parker Posey accepts small screen role

Indie movie fav Parker Posey is in talks to star in a new TV comedy from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino. In "The Return of Jezebel James," Posey would play a newly-single children's book editor who asks her estranged younger sister to be a surrogate mom for her when she discovers she can't conceive. Sherman-Palladino says they sent the Jezebel script to Posey knowing she had never accepted a TV pilot in the past. "I can't believe it's happening," the producer admits. "Because it's a comedy, the character runs the gamut of emotions from laughing to flipping out to breaking your heart in 22 minutes, and only one in a zillion people has enough skill and charm to pull that off. Parker Posey is that person."
