First look at Lauren Graham on NBC's Parenthood

Parenthood was supposed to be one of NBC's fall shows this year. They really could have used it too, since it's actually good, and "good" seems to be in short supply at NBC these days. However, star Maura Tierney had to stop filming early on due to health reasons. Eventually she needed to leave the cast permanently, and re-shoots had to be done with her replacement, Gilmore Girls' Lauren Graham.

NBC has just released the first two promos for Parenthood, which is now premiering in March, after the Olympics. The first one features Graham as Sarah, a single mom to two difficult teenagers. Her daughter is played by Arrested Development's Mae Whitman. It's a short clip, but it's a pretty good indication of the character, which is basically what would have happened to Lorelai Gilmore if Rory hadn't turned out so perfect.

The second clip features Dax Shepard, who is surprisingly good in the pilot that I saw. I still think of him mainly as the guy from Punk'd, so it's interesting to see him on a network drama. He's definitely one to watch, as his storyline will be taking some unexpected turns.

I'd still rather have Mare Winningham in this role and was hoping she'd get it than was hoping Kathryn Erbe would get the role with the whole L&O : CI fiasco
