In a round table setting filmed on the Gilmore Girls' set, the cast will discuss their characters and experiences on the show including favorite episodes, favorite guest stars and funny moments. Entering its fifth season this fall, the heartfelt one-hour dramedy was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino ("Roseanne"), who serves as executive producer with Daniel Palladino ("Roseanne," "Family Guy"). Also credited with executive producer is Gavin Polone ("Stir of Echoes," "Drop Dead Gorgeous").
