If you have a huge ‘Gilmore Girls’-shaped hole in your life, well maybe Netflix’s upcoming ‘Ginny and Georgia’ could help fill it. While fans have been comparing ‘Ginny and Georgia’ to ‘Gilmore Girls’ since the trailer first hit, it looks like ‘Ginny and Georgia’ has far more edge to it akin to ‘Desperate Housewives’.

Creator and executive producer Sarah Lampert said, “We wanted to make a grounded show with real teenagers, real emotions, and honesty. Fifteen-year-old girls go through a lot. Like, a hell of a lot. Something we talked about a lot in the writers’ room is that everyone is fighting a battle that you can’t see. And although our characters are flawed, we treat them with compassion, which is something the world needs more of right now. We weren’t really interested in labeling our characters ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ or passing judgement on them, but instead wanted to explore their gray areas."

Ginny and Georgia ( Netflix)

Showrunner Debra J Fisher says she would like 'Ginny and Georgia' "to be a fun, feel-good ride about women, by women, for everyone, one that depicted a nuanced and complicated mother daughter relationship, and layered female friendships in a way that isn't always seen in shows." ‘Ginny and Georgia’ follows a mother and daughter duo who move to a quaint little town to settle down after years on the run. However new beginnings can often be messy and in ‘Ginny and Georgia’ that’s certainly the case as Georgia's chequered past threatens her family's new way of life.

Release date

'Ginny and Georgia’ is all set for release on February 24 on Netflix. ‘Ginny and Georgia’ will be a 10 episode series.

Plot

Free-spirited Georgia and her two children, Ginny and Austin, move to a quaint town for a fresh start after years of being on the run but it’s not quite so simple. Ginny is an awkward 15-year-old  who feels she can't quite keep up with her mom, a gorgeous 30-year-old. No prizes for guessing why the 'Gilmore Girls' comparisons just don’t stop. However, all the trouble Lauren gets herself into Gilmore Girls are of the more wholesome variety from what we have seen of 'Ginny and Georgia' so far.
