Bunheads is a new show coming to ABC Family from the creator of Gilmore Girls, Amy Sherman-Palladino. The show centers on Michelle (Tony award winner Sutton Foster), a Las Vegas showgirl who impulsively gets married, moves to her new husband’s small hometown, and takes a teaching position at her new mother-in-law’s (Kelly Bishop) dance school.
I watched the pilot and I was in within the first 15 mins. It’s so fantastic. I fell in love instantly. The way the episode ends completely hooked me for the rest of the season. I just want to know what happens now. I was a huge fan of Gilmore Girls so I’ll watch anything from Palladino. The writing here is just as fun and witty as Gilmore and the acting is pretty good. Kelly Bishop, who played the mother and grandmother of the Loreleis, plays the mother in law to Sutton Foster’s Michelle.
Bunheads premieres on ABC Family Monday, June 11th at 9/8c.
