ABC gives Lonow put pilot commitment

'Parents' comedy drew bidding war

ABC has emerged the victor of bidding war among the broadcasters for a comedy from Claudia Lonow (“Accidentally on Purpose”) via 20th Century Fox TV in association with Imagine TV.

“How to Live With Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life” earned a put-pilot commitment. Half-hour centers on a single mom who moves in with her parents to help raise her daughter. Based on Lonow’s own life, “Parents” is a multicamera hybrid, which means it doesn’t shoot in front of a live studio audience.

Exec producers are Brian Grazer and Francie Calfo.

In other 20th TV news, upcoming comedy “New Girl” has cast Justin Long as a love interest to series star Zooey Deschanel for three episodes.
