'Ginny & Georgia' Showrunner Addresses The 'Gilmore Girls' Comparisons

Netflix‘s brand new show, Ginny & Georgia, has been drawing some comparisons to another popular mother and daughter duo series – Gilmore Girls.

Showrunner Sarah Lampert opened up the comparisons and revealed that it wasn’t their intention with the show.

“It was definitely an inspiration, but no more so than My So-Called Life, Buffy, Veronica Mars,” Sarah shared with TV Line in a new interview.

She adds that any stories that had “strong, dynamic, smart, funny, witty, powerful female characters just inspired what I wanted to write about.”

“I think that a relationship between a mother and a daughter, especially a teenage daughter, is one of the most complicated, nuanced, messy, push-and-pull relationships that you have in your life,” Sarah continued, “and I think there’s room for, honestly, hundreds of shows about them. Mother-and-daughter relationships are so interesting to me, and every Mother’s Day, I just send my mom an apology card for the high school years.”

Scott Porter, who plays Mayor Paul Randolph on the series, faced some backlash with Gilmore Girls fans after posting about Ginny & Georgia on his social media, emphasizing that the Netflix show was “so much MORE”.

“I didn’t mean it in the way that we are a greater some of its parts than Gilmore Girls was. What I meant was we have a lot of different storylines that Gilmore Girls would never have stepped into,” he told E! News about the misunderstanding. “We deliver a different kind of storytelling. And, yes, the mother-daughter comparisons, of course, are right there.”

Ginny & Georgia's Brianne Howey Gets Support In The Cutest Way From Fiance Matt Ziering

Brianne Howey is one of the stars of Netflix’s new show, Ginny & Georgia, which premiered on the streaming service this week.

The 31-year-old actress is Georgia, young mom to fifteen year old Ginny Miller (Antonia Gentry), who often feels more mature than her thirty year old mother.

After years on the run, Georgia desperately wants to put down roots in picturesque New England and give her family something they’ve never had… a normal life. But it’s not all carpool and Kombucha as Georgia’s past threatens her and her family’s new way of life… and Georgia will do anything to protect her family.

If Brianne looks familiar, it’s because she’s been part of some very popular shows, including The Odd Couple with Matthew Perry, The Passage with Mark-Paul Gosselaar and she was even on The CW’s Batwoman for a few episodes.

Brianne has been getting a lot of sweet support for the series from her fiancé, lawyer Matt Ziering, on social media.

In an interview, Brianne revealed that she first met Matt at a bar in Los Angeles, where he had been celebrating after taking the California bar exam. When they saw each other again at the same place the next night, they connected.

Matt and Brianne got engaged after a few years of dating and had planned to wed in October 2020. However, COVID-19 derailed their plans for now.
