In the "Ramblings from the Road" section of her official website, Olivier and two-time Tony winner Patti LuPone writes about filming the new CBS comedy pilot, "Open Books," with her former Gypsy co-star, Laura Benanti.

Writes the famed singing actress, "I spent 17 days in a beautiful blooming Los Angeles shooting a pilot with my beloved, beautiful Laura Benanti. The pilot had a great cast. I was lucky to be working with Michael McKean. Laura was fantastic as our star and leading lady. It was written by Gail Lerner and directed by the legendary Jimmy Burrows - that in itself was worth it. There's nobody that knows television comedy better than Jimmy Burrows."

The new series, according a previous Variety story, "centers on June (Benanti), a book editor at a boutique New York publishing house." LuPone is cast as June's "tough-cookie mom."
