Parker will star in the potential series about adult intimacy and desire, told via a dysfunctional family that runs a restaurant together. When daughter Emma’s husband has an affair, her relatives gather close to protect her.

Feed Me will be executive-produced by Paul Junger Witt and Tony Thomas (The Golden Girls) and was written by Sally Thomas (Lifetime’s Steel Magnolias remake).

If it is ordered to series, the project will mark Parker’s first series-regular role since her Showtime series wrapped in 2012.

    Love her! Feels like a different role and style to Weeds which means it’ll be a great new role for her :) hope it gets picked up!

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for
    your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Another NBC show I won’t watch. I love MLP, and Weeds was fantastic, but NBC cancels shows too often to get me to watch. I won’t get involved in an NBC show knowing that it will probably be canceled mid order or after the 1st season.

    MLP might just save NBC
