Amy Sherman-Palladino

Television Writer, Director and Producer; Best Known as the Creator of the Television Series "Gilmore Girls"

Amy Sherman-Palladino Biography

Amy Sherman-Palladino is an American television writer, director, and producer. The founder of Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions, she is best known as the creator of the television series "Gilmore Girls" and "Bunheads."

Sherman-Palladino is married to writer and producer Daniel Palladino. Her parents are comedian Don Sherman and dancer Maybin Hewes. Sherman- Palladino was trained in classical ballet since she was four, and took other forms in her teens. Originally a dancer trainer, Sherman-Palladino had received a callback to the musical Cats, while also having a possible writing position on the staff of Roseanne in rotation. When she and writing partner Jennifer Heath were asked to join Roseanne, she put behind her dancing career—much to her mother's chagrin – and began writing for television.

Sherman-Palladino became a staff writer on Roseanne during the show's third season in 1990. Among the story-lines and episodes she wrote was an Emmy-nominated episode about birth control. She left the show after season six, in 1994, and worked on several other projects.

Sherman-Palladino is best known as the creator and executive producer of "Gilmore Girls," an hour-long television dramedy that aired initially on The WB network, and concluded on its successor network, The CW. In selling the show, Sherman-Palladino says that during her pitch meeting for landing a script order, Gilmore Girls was presented as a last-ditch effort thought up on the spot due to a lacking response from the network executives towards her other ideas. She presented this last hope as a "show about a mother and daughter, but they're more like best friends" and the executives were all sold immediately. During a trip to Connecticut, she and husband Daniel Palladino were inspired to center the show there, allowing a rich setting for a small-town community and the divide from the social setting of Hartford, Connecticut.

On April 20, 2006, it was announced that Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband Daniel could not come to an agreement with The CW to continue their contracts. As a result, the Palladinos' involvement with "Gilmore Girls" came to an end. Writer and producer David S. Rosenthal replaced them.

In 2012, ABC Family picked up Sherman-Palladino's pilot, "Bunheads." The series stars Sutton Foster as a Las Vegas showgirl who, after impulsively getting married, moves to the sleepy coastal town 'Paradise' and winds up working at her new mother-in-law's dance studio: The Paradise Dance Academy. Kelly Bishop, who portrayed Emily Gilmore in Gilmore Girls, plays the recurring role of Fanny Flowers, her mother-in-law. On July 22, 2013, five months after the end of Season 1, it was announced that "Bunheads" would not be renewed for a second season.
