    “Gilmore Girls” alum Alexis Bledel and “Friday Night Lights” star Zach Gilford gave FOX411 the scoop on their new FOX Searchlight comedy “Post-Grad” Thursday night at Planet Hollywood in Times Square.

    “Post-Grad” tells the story of ambitious Ryden Malby (Alexis Bledel) following her college graduation. Ryden expects a big-time job offer, but things don’t work out as planned, so she’s forced to move back in with her family (Michael Keaton, Jane Lynch, and Carol Burnett). Zach Gilford plays best friend Adam, who has harbored a crush on Ryden for years.

    “I like that this character was little more imperfect. She makes more mistakes than my TV character (Rory Gilmore),”Alexis told FOX411.

    And despite recent success in “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”and as an IMG model, Alexis confessed she faced some “post-grad”-like stress after “Gilmore Girls” ended its seven-season run. “When my show ended, I felt like I could relate at that time of my life. I didn’t know what I was going to do next.”

    Zach even contemplated an office job. (Shudder.) “There was a while when I was like, ‘Oh my God, should I get a job, should I get a real job?’ Luckily things worked out.”

    Zach hopes the film provides some comic relief in these scary economic times. “Hopefully we can make people laugh about a tough situation right now and hopefully they’ll leave knowing, ‘Alright things are going to work out. I just need to look at all opportunities, and chill out.’”

    “Post-Grad” opens in theaters nationwide on Friday.
