The Return of Jezebel James (FOX): Series Premiere. The “Pilot” episode and the second episode, “Frankenstein Baby,” play to kickoff the series. The series stars Parker Posey (Superman Returns, Boston Legal) and Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) as estranged sisters. The older of the two finds that she is not able to have a baby and decides to ask her younger sister to carry the baby for her. It is from Amy Sherman-Palladino, who gave us the wonderful characters of Stars Hollow on Gilmore Girls. This has the cast and behind-the-scene people to be a big success, but a Friday night timeslot doesn’t show a lot of support from FOX. I mean, where is this show’s post-American Idol push? Anyway, I hope it is as good as it sounds.
