In news that is both long overdue and slightly surprising, the very funny Lauren Graham is about to star in a comedy. After runs in the sob-inducing Parenthood and frequently poignant Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Graham is set to deploy her frantic energy as the lead in Linda From HR. Per Variety, the Fox comedy will center around Graham in the titular role of “an HR employee whose one bad decision throws her monotonous, unfulfilled life into an exciting but dangerous tailspin of balancing work life, home life, and a secret that could unravel everything.” You heard it first here, folks: When pilfering pens and sticky notes from your workplace, don’t get greedy.
