Lauren Graham To Star In Original Disney+ Series 'The Mighty Ducks'

Lauren Graham stars in a series of Mighty Ducks for Disney

Graham will star as Alex alongside Brady Noon, who will be playing her son Evan.

It's rebooting "The Mighty Ducks" - the film franchise focused on young, Twin Cities hockey players - in the form of a 10-episode series for the streaming platform Disney+. Now, she's been tapped to play the coach in a TV version of "The Mighty Ducks".

"The Mighty Ducks" is produced by ABC Signature Studios, a part of Disney Television Studios. The Disney+ series is a continuation of the film franchise that spawned three movies, one animated TV series, and a real-world National Hockey League hockey team. Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa are also co-creators and are set to showrun.

Graham is also starring in NBC's new musical show Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist with Jane Levy, Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, Mary Steenburgen, and Peter Gallagher.
