New Promotional Stills of ABC’s New Comedy “How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)”
•• ABC has released the promotional photos for their upcoming comedy series “How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)” premiering Wednesday April 3, 2013 at 9:30 p.m., starring Sarah Chalke, Rachel Eggleston, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. Check them out below!
Polly (Sarah Chalke) is a single mom who’s been divorced for almost a year. The transition wasn’t easy for her, especially in this economy. So, like a lot of young people living in this new reality, she and her daughter, Natalie (Rachel Eggleston), have moved back home with her eccentric parents, Elaine (Elizabeth Perkins) and Max (Brad Garrett). But Polly and her parents look at life through two different lenses. Polly’s too uptight. Her parents are too laid back. Polly’s conservative when it comes to dating (no action, whatsoever), while her parents are still sexually adventurous. They think Polly turned out okay, so what’s the big deal? Well, they say it takes a village to raise a child… and in Polly’s case, this village is on fire. But with help from her best friend Gregg (Orlando Jones), her lovable yet irresponsible ex-husband Julian (Jon Dore) and her cool and fun assistant Jenn (Rebecca Delgado Smith) Polly takes her first steps toward getting a life, starting with a social one.

The comedy was written by Claudia Lonow, who is also an executive producer along with Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo. The pilot was directed by Julie Anne Robinson.
