The gallery was updated with pictures of Alexis in her newest TV caracter, Stacey in FOX’s Us & Them.
Us & Them is a single-camera adaptation of the British Gavin & Stacey, in which two very different people try to make a long-distance relationship work. The American version’s cast includes Jason Ritter (Parenthood), Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls) and Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle).
FOX, unhappy with the quality of scripts as they were coming in, has basically cancelled the midseason sitcom. The network still plans to air the six already-produced episodes but will not move forward with the rest of the series’ 13-episode order.

FOX has cut the episode order for its forthcoming comedy “Us & Them” from 13 episodes to seven, effectively shutting down production on the show.
The show, an adaptation of the Britcom “Gavin & Stacey,” stars Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel as a long-distance couple who are meeting in person for the first time, bringing their respective best friends (Dustin Ybarra and Ashlie Atkinson) along in case the date goes awry. Spoiler alert: It does.
Deadline reports that last week, the show moved up a scheduled production hiatus so the writers could work on more scripts. FOX then decided not to bring the show back into production, leaving it with seven completed episodes.
The news of “Us & Them” having its order cut follows on the heels of the network ordering additional scripts for “Dads.” Deadline notes the network was concerned the rom-com tone of “Us & Them” might not fit in with the likes of “Dads” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (though it probably could have paired fairly easily with something like “New Girl”).
FOX also has an unusually large roster of series for winter and spring as part of its commitment to year-round scheduling. Three other comedies — “Enlisted,” “Surviving Jack” and the recently picked up “Mulaney” — are due to premiere in 2014, along with “American Idol,” “The Following” and new drama “Rake.”
Cinedigm has released the trailer for “Violet & Daisy” starring Saoirse Ronan, Alexis Bledel, James Gandolfini, Jean-Baptiste, and Danny Trejo.
The film was directed and written by Geoffrey Fletcher.
“Violet & Daisy” is the whimsical story of a teenager’s surreal and violent journey through New York City. It follows Oscar-nominee Saoirse Ronan as Daisy. With her volatile partner-in-crime Violet, played by Alexis Bledel, the two young assassins face a series of opponents, including one unusually mysterious man (James Gandolfini), in a life-altering encounter.
“Violet & Daisy” is set for a limited release in theaters on June 7, 2013.
Hi everyone! My name is Cam and I am currently running Alexis&Lauren.com. Even tho I still adore both actresses and Gilmore Girls, I think it’s time to move on and have a separated site on each actress, so I wanna thank Gertie for allowing me to do this and for setting up the domains.
I will start transferring the content over from my Alexis&Lauren site in the next month so I should be able to get the site back up and running shortly. It will take some time to separate and organize all the files but I will get there eventually. Hopefully you guys will stick around and enjoy the site! Later I will turn my Alexis&Lauren site into a media/video site. If you have any questions or concerns let me know, thanks.
