Actress-turned-author Lauren Graham is adapting her debut novel Someday, Someday, Maybe for the small screen.

The Bad Santa star released the bestseller in April (13) to rave reviews and she is now developing a one-hour Tv drama based on the book, which centres on a young woman who has six months of her three-year plan left to make it as an actress in New York City.

Graham will write the script as well as executive produce the project alongside talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and producer Jeff Kleeman.

The actress' collaboration with Warner Bros. Tv marks a reunion of sorts for Graham, who starred in the studio's hit drama Gilmore Girls for seven seasons from 2000-2007.
