No spoilers, but 'Gilmore Girls' star says chemistry is back

Melissa McCarthy answered the call for Netflix's "Gilmore Girls" sequel and made magic again with star Lauren Graham, the show's creator said.

McCarthy's career has soared with movies including "Bridesmaids" and "Ghostbusters" since she played Sookie in the 2000-07 series, complicating efforts to fit taping into her busy schedule, said Amy Sherman-Palladino. But it was inevitable, she added.

"She's the same," she said. McCarthy and Graham "have a weird Lucy-and-Ethel thing that you kind of have to just see it to understand it," Sherman-Palladino said, and played off each other within minutes of reuniting.
