'How to Live With Your Parents' creator: I still live with my parents

27 July 2012 5:25 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

ABC's midseason comedy "How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)" has by far the longest title of any new show this season. It also may have the most autobiographical title.

Series creator Claudia Lonow ("Accidentally on Purpose," "Less Than Perfect") says she has lived with her folks for the past 15 years, and she plans on mining her own life for the show for as long as she can.

For instance, as relates to the lead character's (Sarah Chalke) dating life: "I would say that being a divorced woman with a child who lives with her parents is not a selling point," Lonow says. "I had a couple guys drive me home and want to come in, and I'm like ... 'Well, I'm going to break this to you now' ... and they kind of ran to the car to get away."

That said, Lonow does see the »

Leah Remini On ‘Family Tools’: TCA

27 July 2012 5:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Diane Haithman contributes to Deadline’s TV coverage. Last August, Leah Remini’s name was in the news as she was ousted from CBS daytime’s The Talk along with Holly Robinson Peete. Now she’s at ABC in the new comedy Family Tools. And at today’s TCA panel on the comedy, she was relentlessly upbeat about the change. “I do believe things happen for a reason, it’s a blessing”, she said. “I started at ABC in 1989 with Living Dolls. My mother said: ‘What part are you playing?’ Yeah”, she cracked. “But it is a blessing to be here, I love being back at ABC, I’d like to stay here and get comfortable”. Remini seems determined to deflect any negatives and called her ouster from the daytime talk program “a learning experience”. After the session, she acknowledged that in hindsight “there were a lot of things I wish I didn’t say, »

Producer Claudia Lonow On ABC’s ‘How To Live With Your Parents’: TCA

27 July 2012 3:53 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Diane Haithman contributes to Deadline’s TV coverage. One of the first questions at today’s TCA panel on the new ABC comedy How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life) was: Why is the title so long? Not exactly Twitter-friendly, according to the questioner. Is there a line between long, and too long? “This. This is the line”, joked writer/executive producer Claudia Lonow, who appeared on the panel with series stars Brad Garrett, Elizabeth Perkins, Sarah Chalke and executive producer Francie Calfo (executive producer Brian Grazer did not attend). Added Lonow: “I’m sorry, I like it. Do you like it”? The questioner didn’t like it. But Lonow likes it because the show is the story of her life. Just like the lead character Polly (Chalke), Lonow moved back in with her parents after a divorce with a young daughter in tow. Her »

Emmys: Lena Dunham & Amy Poehler Score Rare Double For Female Comedy Writers

19 July 2012 12:44 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The momentum for female TV comedy writers continues. On the heels of the recent success of comedy series created/co-created by women — including Fox’s New Girl, ABC’s Suburgatory and CBS’ 2 Broke Girls – and a second consecutive upfront with multiple pickups of new series from female creators including Fox’s The Mindy Project from Mindy Kaling and ABC’s How To Live With Your Parents from Claudia Lonow, female comedy writes are now making big strides in the boy’s club known as the writing for a comedy series Emmy category. Lena Dunham, creator-star of HBO’s new comedy series Girls, and Amy Poehler, star of NBC’s Parks And Recreation, today landed comedy series writing Emmy nominations alongside Parks & Rec co-creator Michael Schur, Louie creator-star Louis C.K., and Community’s Chris McKenna. Film prodigy Dunham is nominated for the Girls pilot, while Poehler is recognized for writing ”The Debate” episode of Parks & Rec. »

'How to Live with Your Parents' Creator Claudia Lonow Will Never Leave Home (Q&A)

17 July 2012 11:05 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

For producer Claudia Lonow, How To Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of your Life) is not just the title of her mid-season comedy but also her reality. The showrunner, who got her start in front of the camera as Diana Fairgate on Knots Landing, has been living with her college-bound daughter in her parents’ home for some 15 years. Come spring, that "life crisis situation"-turned-long-term reality wil prove fodder for her long-awaited ABC comedy starring Sarah Chalke as a version of her.  Photos: ABC's 2012-13 Season: 'Nashville,' '666 Park Ave' and 'Malibu

ABC Announces Fall Schedule – Get A Peek At What’s Coming

22 May 2012 12:59 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Terry O'Quinn as Gavin Doran in "666 Park Avenue" (ABC/Andrew Eccles)

ABC‘s slate of new shows for fall has a strange flavor to it, and it’s going to be a bumpy ride. The network has about as many new shows as returning ones (if you count all the midseasons), and a good percentage of the returning offerings are a year old or less, making this look a bit like a rebuilding year.

Not only is it a rebuilding year, but it’s the year of bringing back every actor and actress who ever had a decent run on a show before. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a network’s new season slate that was so crammed with people returning from something else. If you can’t make it good, I suppose, make sure viewers recognize the faces.

It’s tricky to get a solid feel »

Light-Hearted First Trailer for How To Live With Your Parents with Scrubs’ Sarah Chalke

17 May 2012 1:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Sarah Chalke (Scrubs) is returning with a new programme in January next year, taking the lead in ABC’s How to Live with your Parents (For the Rest of your Life).

After Mad Love was cancelled after a short-lived season, following Chalke’s leading role in Scrubs, we heard earlier this year that she’d signed on for a new comedy which has just had its first trailer debut.

Julie Anne Robinson (Weeds, One for the Money) is directing the pilot, from a script by Claudia Lonow (Accidentally on Purpose), with Elizabeth Perkins, Brad Garrett, and Orlando Jones, and Rachel Eggleston playing Chalke’s young daughter.

“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 »

Sarah Chalke learns 'How to Live With Your Parents' on ABC

15 May 2012 4:17 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Single mom Polly (Sarah Chalke) needs a fresh start, and so she seeks help from her mom and dad. Whoops.

Chalke ("Scrubs," "Mad Love") plays a woman determined to be the "best single working mom in the universe" in "How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)," which easily takes this season's crown for longest show title. She looks to her folks (Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett) for support and a place to live, but mom and dad are pretty happy with their empty-nest life, and they don't see much upside into changing their ways for Polly and her daughter, Natalie (Rachel Eggleston).

Chalke is an expert at playing tightly wound characters, and Perkins is working some of the same self-centered vibe she did on "Weeds" (though without the nasty streak). Garrett, meanwhile, gets to work his deadpan in a single-camera comedy instead of playing to »

Primetime Pilot Panic: Which Pilots Look Good At ABC

11 May 2012 11:50 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Update Friday Am: I’ve started hearing that drama pilot Zero Hour is heating up again and looks promising for a series order. Previous Thursday 8Pm: With NBC and Fox pretty much done with their new series pickups, ABC, which presents its fall schedule right after them on Tuesday, is at bat next. Here is my last take on the ABC pilot field heading into tomorrow, when the network is expected to make its picks. On the drama side, Nashville is on the schedule. Fellow soaps Americana and Red Widow (formerly Penoza) also look strong, along with the male-skewing Last Resort, which I hear may be launched as a limited/midseason series. In the magical series face-off between 666 Park Ave and Gotham, (Beauty & The Beast has dropped out of contention), 666 seems to have the upper hand but that could change. I hear Marc Cherry’s Devious Maids is fading fast »

ABC Pilot ‘Counter Culture’ Not Going Forward Following Delta Burke’s Injury

25 April 2012 3:15 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

I’ve learned that ABC’s comedy pilot Counter Culture is being shelved following last week’s injury suffered by one of its stars, Delta Burke, who fell on the set during pre-shoots two days before the multi-camera pilot’s main taping in front of studio audience. The producers had been hoping for a quick recovery that would allow the pilot to shoot and be in consideration for fall but that didn’t happen. I hear the matter is now in the hands of the insurance company, which has to sort out a host of issues surrounding the shutdown, including compensation for the cast and crew. The actors have not been formally released, allowing the network and producer Sony Pictures TV to film the pilot after the upfronts, though that doesn’t appear likely. Written and executive produced by Stephnie Weir and executive produced by Claudia Lonow, Counter Culture was »

ABC Pilot ‘Counter Culture’ Halts Production After Star Delta Burke Injured

17 April 2012 12:36 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

I’ve learned that production on ABC’s comedy pilot Counter Culture has been stopped because of an injury suffered by one of its stars, Delta Burke, who had a fall on the set yesterday. The multi-camera pilot had been doing pre-shoots, with the main taping in front of a live audience scheduled for tomorrow. Word is Burke will be sidelined for at least a week, but producers are still hoping to finish the pilot in time for fall consideration. Written and executive produced by Stephnie Weir and executive produced by Claudia Lonow, Counter Culture revolves around three sisters — Billie (Kerri Kenney), Nonie (Burke) and Joyce (Margo Martindale) — running their family diner together in West Texas who find that sibling dynamics are always getting in the way of getting the job done. The pilot, produced by Sony Pictures TV, co-stars Doris Roberts as the sisters’ aunt. »

29 February 2012 6:30 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Weeds alumna Elizabeth Perkins is set to star opposite Sarah Chalke in Claudia Lonow’s ABC comedy pilot How to Live With Your Parents For The Rest Of Your Life. The multi-camera/hybrid comedy, from 20th TV and Imagine, centers on Polly (Chalke), a recently divorced single mom, who moves in with her eccentric parents, Elaine (Perkins) and Max, a couple who’s full of life but knows no boundaries.
