40 Gilmore Girls Facts That’ll Make You Say “Oy With the Poodles Already!”
The show was inspired by a road trip.
Do you think that Gilmore Girls is inspired by some cool, fast-talking mother and daughter? It is a very good guess, but it is not the case. Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino actually came up with the idea for the show on a fateful road trip. The trip happened to lead her through the tiny town of Washington, Connecticut. Population: 3,500-ish people. Amy recalled the friendly feeling, the greenery, everyone knowing everyone and, yes, a coffee shop. The vibe of the small town apparently had such a pull on her that Gilmore Girls (and Stars Hollow) was fleshed out in 24 hours. She even began writing some of the lines for the pilot episode in that time. Impressive.
