Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser may have ended up together, but her Mad Men arc seemed pretty complete by the end of season five. So it's good news she's landed her first TV lead since Gilmore Girls, on Fox's single-camera comedy pilot Friends & Family opposite Jason Ritter (Parenthood, Joan of Arcadia). The show, an adaptation of the British series Gavin & Stacey, details the essential moments in the life of a couple trying "to maintain their relationship while combining their polarizing families' lives."
