ABC pulls plug on ‘Parents’

Alyssa Milano was set to star in show

ABC and ABC Studios have pulled the plug on the Alyssa Milano laffer “Single with Parents.”

Decision not to move forward on the comedy, which had been picked up for midseason, came after a creative direction couldn’t be agreed upon, the studio said.

“Single with Parents” was set to star Milano as a thirtysomething woman who was trying to juggle her life while dealing with her dysfunctional family.

Kristin Newman, Matthew Carlson, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank were exec producers. Milano was set to star with Annie Potts, Beau Bridges and Amanda Detmer.
