Parker Posey Signs on for Comedy

Parker PoseyOne of my favorites, Parker Posey, will be joining a Fox comedy pilot. Anyone familiar with this Indie queen knows that she’s a fantastic presence, and the pilot comes from Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator of Gilmore Girls. Together, that makes a pretty solid pedigree. The show, titled The Return of Jezebel James, stars Parker as a children’s book editor. The comedy comes into play when this newly single character asks her estranged sister to carry the baby that she can’t conceive. Well, I guess it could be funny. Did you see My Name is Earl last week? Kinda the same premise going on. Sherman-Palladino and her husband sent Posey the script for The Return of Jezebel James, despite her history of turning down other pilots. “I can’t believe it’s happening,” Sherman-Palladino said. “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.” Isn’t that the truth? Anyone who’s seen her roles in Waiting for Guffman or Best in Show is well aware of her talent.
