•• Very sad news, ABC has decided not to pick up the comedy, which starred Sarah Chalke as a newly-divorced mom who moves back in with her mom (Elizabeth Perkins) and step-father (Brad Garrett), for a second season. “How To Live With Your Parents”, shortened from “How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life)” made its debut in April and boasted a pretty impressive 8.44 million total viewers and 2.9 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. With the exception of one episode, “How To Live With Your Parents” performed pretty well, mainly staying above a 2.0 rating and 6 million total viewers.

Sanofi US and Golden Globe and Emmy nominated actress Elizabeth Perkins proudly premiered the Diabetes Co-Stars documentary, “Strength in Numbers” at the American Diabetes Association Expo in Los Angeles, CA this past weekend. The film, produced by Elizabeth and her co-star and husband Julio Macat, features her diabetes story as well as two other inspirational stories from the 2012 Diabetes Co-Stars casting call contest – best friends Amanda Bauer and Anne Casey from New York, and father-daughter duo Eugenio and Naiomi Rivera from Texas.
The pairs were selected because of their empowering stories of dedication and support, with Amanda and Anne giving back to their community by spearheading support groups for youth living with diabetes, and Eugenio and Naiomi guiding one another through their daily diabetes management. The documentary highlights their stories, in addition to Elizabeth and Julio’s, and can be viewed online at www.diabetescostars.com.
“Hearing these stories, I truly identified with the level of support and caring these people showed one another and was so excited to feature them in this documentary,” said Elizabeth Perkins, star of the new ABC sitcom ‘How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).’ “The Diabetes Co-Stars program is close to my heart because it celebrates those who support the 26 million Americans living with diabetes every day and this film shines a light on these inspiring people.”
Elizabeth Perkins, who is living with type 1 diabetes, produced the documentary as part of her partnership with Sanofi US on the Diabetes Co-Stars campaign, which has brought awareness to millions of Americans about the power of a support team for people living with diabetes since the program’s launch in 2010. She currently uses Lantus® SoloSTAR® (insulin glargine [rDNA origin] injection) as part of her overall diabetes treatment plan, along with exercise, healthy diet and the support from her family and friends.
