The single-camera project — from writer/EP DJ Nash (Bent) — centers on a son who idolizes his blind father (played by J.K. Simmons, The Closer, Family Tools) and enjoys his mom’s newfound adolescence after his folks divorce and ultimately grow closer.

Posey played the boy’s mother in the series’ pilot; the part will be recast.

    Hey, now I can actually watch this! Yay!

  2. Eddie says:

    The premise doesn’t sound good enough. I personally don’t blame her. NBC just need a REALLY big hit, something that actually sounds interesting in a sentence.

  3. Lisa says:

    I could never picture her with JK Simmons – she seems much younger, at least in temperment/attitude, I don’t know if they are close in age or not

  4. Jon says:

    Did anyone really expect Parker Posey to headline a TV series?

  5. Kathy says:

    Paget Brewster’s pilot didn’t get picked up so she is available. Just saying.

    I think she’d rock the character’s newfound adolescence.

  6. Paul says:

    Laura Linney seems like she would be a good fit. She’s closer to JK in age, and the Big C is over. Mary Louis Parker might be good too. Robert Greenblat know them both from his Showtime days, come on NBC!

  7. Evan says:

    The sitcom’s obviously not indy enough for her.

  8. Alex says:

    Sounds like she realized it was gonna be a bomb and bailed while she had the chance.
