    She finally comes to television!!

    NBC Orders Susan Sarandon Comedy Pilot – Written by and Co-Starring Her Daughter

    When it comes to supporting her child’s writing career, Susan Sarandon is putting her career where her mouth is.

    The Academy Award-winning actress is set to star in Growing Ivy, a single-camera comedy pilot for NBC, conceived, co-written by and co-starring her daughter Eva Amurri Martino, and executive-produced by Parks and Recreation favorite Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (the latter who will co-write with Martino).

    Growing Ivy
    finds Martino in the lead role of Ivy Davis, a Type A career woman with a flailing personal life who invites her freewheeling, eccentric mom Franckie (Sarandon) to move in with her and work on their relationship. Her goal? To experience some of the stability she lacked in her childhood, restore balance in her everyday existence and potentially find love.

    Martino and Sarandon will also serve as co-executive producers.

    Sarandon recently signed on for a one-episode guest stint on Season 4 of CBS’ Mike & Molly. Martino’s recent TV credits include New Girl, The Mindy Project and Californication.

    She is so great, but this sounds so terribly generic.

    Great news! But I agree with Renaton on the premise.

    The exodus of former movie stars continues. The show sounds awful and terribly contrived. Hopefully I’m wrong, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this never sees the light of day (same as Meg Ryan vehicle).

    Wow, she’s never won a Globe, and she’s 0/4 with Emmys. Did not know that. Could help her chances.

    I’ll watch Sarandon in almost anything including an NBC comedy series which is sure to be junk.

    Oh, this sounds awful. A child moves back in with their eccentric parent? We’ve never seen that before!
    And the fact that her real-life daughter is writing and starring in it? Eek.

    20 bucks says that if this goes to series it’ll be cancelled by midseason.

    I agree this sounds generic. But I do love Susan Sarandon and it turns out okay. I thought Brooklyn Nine-Nine seems weak when I watch the trailer but the show surprises me. So not gonna rule it out that it turn out good.

    It sounds a lot like Frasier’s premise. It’s generic, but it could be good.

    Sounds like Frasier with women. Hopefully this means Sarandon doing quality work again!
