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. I hear that the role, originally written a bit older, has been reworked for Perkins. Perkins, repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment, got 3 pilot offers this season. In an interesting twist, her decision came down to How To Live With Your Parents and Lonow’s other ABC comedy pilot, Counter Culture. Perkins’ five-year run on Showtime’s Weeds earned her 3 Emmy noms.
