No shade to Gilmore Girls.
In an unique chat with E! News, Scott Porter clarified what he meant when he stated his new Netflix present, Ginny & Georgia, was “so much more” than Gilmore Girls. For those that do not comply with Porter on Twitter and Instagram, on Jan. 25, the 41-12 months-outdated actor took to social media to advertise the upcoming dramedy.
Alongside the present’s key artwork, he wrote, “Y’all ain’t ready for this show or for these two forces of nature @Brianne_Howey and Antonia Gentry). And no, we’re NOT just like Gilmore Girls, we are so much MORE. #GinnyAndGeorgia drops February 24th on @netlix.”
According to Porter, who performs Mayor Paul Randolph on Ginny & Georgia, he acquired himself “in trouble” as Gilmore Girls followers felt his remark was a dig on the beloved ’00s comedy-drama. “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,” Porter completely instructed E! News. “We deliver a different kind of storytelling. And, yes, the mother-daughter comparisons, of course, are right there.”
