Though you may not have seen much of Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham since that show's conclusion, you'll be pleased to know that this will soon change. Graham revealed what's in store for her in the upcoming year in this Exclusive Q&A with EW's Michael Ausiello . Graham will soon be appearing in a Broadway production of musical Guys and Dolls. Wondering if she can sing? Asks Ausiello: How's the singing coming? I think the only time I've heard you sing was in an episode of Gilmore Girls. Responds Graham: "Yes, but Lorelai was drunk! People keep saying that to me and I'm like, "Don't gauge my singing ability by Lorelai singing drunk in the seventh season. That wasn't my Broadway debut." [Laughs] It's hard to talk about. I auditioned. I've been training as a singer for a long time. I did musicals in high school and college. I did summer stock. I got my equity card before any of my other unions - I thought I was on that path. But I stopped for a while. Also, this is not a legit soprano part; I can't sing that music. But this is something I'm enjoying doing. I really connect with this character. I really like her. I feel comfortable in this medium. I feel happy to be here. It's been a challenge, but I'm really enjoying it." And...for those of us who won't be able to catch Graham on Broadway, she's also landed the lead in a new ABC series from Mitch Hurwitz ( Arrested Development ) and Alex Herschlag ( Will & Grace ). Graham will be playing a self-help guru who is deeply flawed. Graham describes the show as a dark comedy. Graham hopes to film the pilot while working on Guys and Dolls (to which she is committed through October). So...excited to see Graham doing things again?

Lauren Graham could soon be showing us the funny again. ABC has made a production commitment to a new comedy starring the former Gilmore Girl as a self-help guru who advises women on how to live a stress-free life, only to have her calm center unsettled when her boyfriend dumps her. Self-help guru to women is rocked by her ironically rocky love life? Does she then move to a small town in Alaska and take an hirsute suitor? According to Variety, Graham will also serve as a producer on the as-yet-untitled laffer, which would mark her first series-regular role since Gilmore Girls signed off in May 2007. Alex Herschlag ( Will & Grace ) will pen the pilot. read from: TvGuide Graham makes her Broadway debut in February as the female lead (aka Miss Adelaide) in a revival of Guys and Dolls .

Fans of Gilmore Girls and other WB programs will be happy to know that though The WB network (everyone's former favorite destination for watching attractive young people with issues) is now defunct, it will soon be resurrected as TheWB.com . The WB.com - run by Warner Brothers - will make episodes available for streaming of some of the WB's classic series including Gilmore, Smallville and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (more TBA...please please please let there be Dawson's Creek ) as well as additional series that were produced by Warner Brothers that did not air on The WB. This includes programs such as The OC and Friends. The website will also include short episodes of new content made solely for the Internet. This will include a music program created by Josh Schwartz (The OC, Gossip Girl). The effort is part of a new "digital destination" strategy by Warner Brothers and will specifically be targeting 16 to 34 year old females. Source: NYTimes
