    I’ve loved Elizabeth Perkins ever since Weeds began! Such a great actress. I hope her character is a bitch like Celia was. If so, I’ll be all over this show when it premieres!

      I love EP. I wouldn’t mind seeing her paired with Jim Belushi again [About Lat Night]. They worked well together.

  2. Ana says:

    Seriously? She does not look old enough to play Sarah Chalke’s mother.

  3. rebecca says:

    Michael Keaton would be awesome as the dad. His roles in The Other Guys and Post Grad as the eccentric family man were hilarious. He made a great movie (The Other Guys) better and he made a horrible film (Post Grad) watchable.

    lol. The name is too long and this show will fail.

    Still find it funny, Grounded For Life was already taken.
