UPDATED: Ethan Peck (10 Things I Hate About You), Eureka alum Ed Quinn and Hart Bochner (The Starter Wife) will co-star opposite Mary-Louise Parker in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot Feed Me. The project centers on a dysfunctional family bound by love and the restaurant they run together. The three adult children of restaurant owners Alice and Len Carroll are all struggling with various romantic/sexual/marital crises, all of which seem to come to a head as they gather in a hospital waiting room to support Emma (Parker) as her husband Will (Bochner) recovers from a heart attack suffered during an extra-marital tryst. Peck plays Ned, Emma’s terminally adolescent younger brother, a culinary artist who tries hard to bring some sophistication and modernity to his family’s decades old restaurant, but his menu changes only infuriate his dad. Quinn plays John Carroll, the eldest and the most cynical and ironic of the three Carroll children.
