MUMBAI: Are you the apple of your mother’s eye? Are you her reflection in the truest sense? Do you think she’s above all in your life? If you share a unique bond with your mother, Romedy Now will showcase a story of a mother and her daughter that will hold you captive for not one but seven back to back seasons.

The channel yet again promises love and laughter as it presents to you one of the most popular American comedy-drama shows, ‘Gilmore Girls’. The show centers around the relationship between a thirty something single mother Lorelai Gilmore (played by Lauren Graham) and her teenage daughter Rory Gilmore (played by Alexis Bledel) living in a fictional town Star Hollow, Connecticut. It is all about friendship, family and the ties that bind.

Once the super-successful season of ‘Jane The Virgin’ culminates on September 3, Romedy Now will engage the television audiences with this new offering from the next day i.e. September 4. The show will continue to occupy the evening 7 pm slot from Monday to Friday.

Talking about the show, Sonal Khanduja, Vice President - Programming, English Entertainment Cluster said, “Gilmore Girls is a free-spirited series and one of the most endearing, engaging shows of recent times. It is a humorous multigenerational series about friendship, family and the ties that bind. The premise of the show, a tight, friend like bond between a mother and daughter, is an important representation of a changing times. We are extremely excited to recreate the magic and capture the hearts of our viewers with all 7 seasons back to back on ROMEDY NOW starting 4th Sept 7 pm Monday-Friday.” –Gilmore Girls is known for its fast-paced dialogues with lot of pop-culture references.

Revolving around Lorelai, the show is about the protective mother who doesn’t want her daughter Rory to follow her footsteps and make mistakes she herself made. That may be easier said than done, considering that the two share the same interests, the same intellect, the same coffee addiction!

The show begins with sharing story of Lorelai, who was a teenager when she became pregnant and made the tough decision to raise the child alone. The defiant move caused a rift between her and her aristocratic parents Emily (Bishop) and Richard (Herrmann). However, the destiny had other plans. Lorelai, who later found herself in desperate need of money for her daughter Rory’s education, was forced to reconcile with her parents.

Going forward, the comedy drama unfolds as audiences realize that the tendencies of the mother and daughter, especially in case of love, prove that Rory is her mother’s daughter. To know what happens next, tune in to Romedy Now on 4 September.

Gilmore Girls was bestowed with the Viewers for Quality Television Award and was named ‘New Program of the Year’ by the Television Critics Association. Lauren Graham, the main star of the series, was nominated for ‘Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series’ and received two consecutive nominations for ‘Outstanding Performance’ by a Female Actor in a drama series from the Screen Actors Guild.

Meanwhile, another star of the series Alexis Bledel has won a Young Artist Award and a Family Television Award for the show.
