Gilmore Girls Luke’s Diner pop-ups serving free coffee this week; new Amy Sherman-Palladino pilot for Amazon

gilmore-girls-mugs

If there’s one thing that Gilmore Girls is synonymous with — if you don’t count rapid-fire dialogue, nonstop pop culture references, quirky small town whimsy, and blowout arguments — it’s coffee. (Gigantic mugs of coffee.) It was National Coffee Day on Septmber 29 and the series, which is coming back with the four-part ‘A Year in the Life’ movies on Netflix the day after Thanksgiving, couldn’t let that go past without doing something and that something was the promo image above. But wait there’s more. On Wednesday, October 5 there will be Luke’s Diner pop-ups at coffee shops (and diners) all over the U.S. and a few in Canada, too (mostly Toronto). They’ll be serving free coffee beginning at 7 AM and running till noon (250 cups at each pop-up), and they’ll have all Luke’s Diner branded aprons and t-shirts, and Luke’s Diner coffee cut sleeves. There are a whole bunch of pop-up Luke’s in in NYC:

In related news, the Gilmore Girls revival isn’t the only project creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has in the hopper. She’s currently making a pilot for Amazon, a period dramedy titled The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. From Deadline:

Set in the 1950s, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel centers on Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel (Brosnahan), a 25-year-old sharp, sunny, energetic and absolutely adorable Jewish girl married and living with her husband and two children in NYC. A woman of her time, Midge is a dutiful daughter and a cheerleader of a wife to a man who, though he has a good job in his father’s company, sadly harbors delusional dreams of a stand-up comedy career. One day, Midge’s perfect life blows up when her husband leaves her for another woman. Completely unprepared, Midge suddenly finds herself at sea with only her wit to help her build a brand new life for herself. She goes on to become one of the first female standup comics.

In the title role is Rachel Brosnahan who you may know from Netflix series House of Cards. The show is currently filming in NYC and will be filming this week at 96 St. Marks Place, aka the building on the cover of Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti, and a few (well, two) of the building’s residents were apparently not happy, according to The New York Post:

On Tuesday, signs went up at 96 St. Marks Place, part of the Physical Graffiti building, notifying residents that Amy Sherman-Palladino’s new drama “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” would be filming at the exterior of their home from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Oct. 4 and Oct. 5.

The notice read, “Only when filming, a production assistant from ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ will be inside the entrance of 94 and 96 St. Marks Place to ask residents to stand by so they do not walk into the shot. This will only be for a minute at a time.”

Modal TriggerBy Thursday, annoyed tenants had written crude remarks on the poster.

“F–k off,” one person wrote, while another added to the bottom, “You better hope I have nowhere to be during this, or your f–king ‘scene’ is ruined!”

One resident also wondered, “Is mgmt getting $$ for this? Do [tenants] see a share?”

The Post also notes that other residents didn’t seem to mind at all — TV and film shoots are a way of life in NYC. With the Palladinos in town, maybe they’ll stop by one of the Luke’s pop-ups (there is one in the East Village). Like all Amazon shows, pilots for a few shows go up at the same time and then get voted on by viewers. Along with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Amazon also ordered a pilot from Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labrynth).
