With The CW expected to start formally ordering pilots in the coming days, new details are emerging (OK, a single detail — but it’s a biggie!) about one of the network’s buzziest properties: The Lauren Graham-penned dramedy based on the Parenthood star’s debut novel, Someday, Someday Maybe.

According to sources, the project — which follows a young woman nearing the end of a self-imposed time limit to find success as an actress in New York City — is going by the working title Unfamous. Graham is an exec-producer alongside Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman (The Change-Up).

Earlier this month at the Television Critics Association winter tour, CW president Mark Pedowitz confirmed that Graham’s pilot script had been submitted and called it “excellent,” adding, “It’s under consideration.

“We have only so many slots,” he continued. “We’re going to probably do the same amount of pilots we did last year. So we’re going to have to determine whether or not it fits within any of those slots.”

The fact that Unfamous is one of The CW’s few non-genre pilot scripts in the pipeline may actually work in its favor. Pedowitz himself recently acknowledged to The Hollywood Reporter, “At some point we will be oversaturated with genre, and we’ll move back to the family genre. It feels like we’re slowly getting there.”

How awesome is this!? Lauren’s bestseller Someday, Someday, Maybe is being turned into a television series produced by Ellen. Deadline reports:

On the heels of her successful debut novel, New York Times bestseller Someday, Someday, Maybe, Lauren Graham is venturing into screenwriting. The actress has closed a deal with Warner Bros. TV and Ellen DeGeneres‘ studio-based A Very Good Production for a series adaptation of her book, which was published April 30. Graham will write the script for the hour long drama and will executive produce with Very Good Production’s DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman. The project, which is expected to keep the book’s witty tone, centers on a young woman with six months left on her three-year plan to make a career as an actress in New York City. Graham and DeGeneres are friends, with the Parenthood star frequently visiting DeGeneres’ talk show. Someday, Someday, Maybe reunites Graham with Warner Bros. TV, the studio behind dramedy Gilmore Girls, which made Graham a household name. She is repped by ICM Partners, manager John Carrabino and attorney Adam Kaller.

Best roommates ever? On Watch What Happens Live Thursday, May 2, Parenthood actress Lauren Graham revealed that she and Nashville star Connie Britton used to live together — as squatters?

“We lived in an empty house that we weren’t supposed to be living in,” Graham, 46, revealed. “We had no furniture and all we ate were Rice Krispies Treats.”

During host Andy Cohen’s 60-second speed round of questions about Graham’s past roommate, she also joked that Britton, 46, would leave the dishes in the sink “forever” and would secretly borrow her shoes. But the actress wouldn’t air too much of her dirty laundry. When asked what Britton’s dirtiest habit was, Graham said, “She didn’t have any. What a breath of fresh air all the time!” How often did Britton bring guys home? “Just as often as I did,” she joked.

Graham, who was promoting her upcoming debut novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe, also discussed the possibility of a Gilmore Girls movie. “I wish that I could answer this in a more satisfying way, because I get asked it all the time. The Veronica Mars movie got this all started with the Kickstarter thing, but without knowing what the creator of the show wants to do exactly, I don’t know.”

The CW series, costarring Alexis Bledel, came to an end in 2007 after seven seasons. Was Graham happy with how it ended? Well . . .

“I feel like we did the best we could without the original creator [Amy Sherman-Palladino] of the show, but it would have been different with her,” Graham explained. Palladino left the show in 2006 over contract disputes. “It was good, but I understand why it wasn’t satisfying for people.”
