Mary-Louise Parker Set as Star of NBC Comedy Pilot ‘Feed Me’

NBC has sealed a deal with Mary-Louise Parker to star in the single-camera comedy “Feed Me” produced by sitcom vets Paul Junger Witt and Tony Thomas.

Parker had been attached to the project at the time NBC gave it a formal pilot order last month but there was still some uncertainty about her deal closing. Project reunites the thesp with NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt, who greenlit Parker’s signature TV role in Showtime’s “Weeds.”

Sally Robinson penned the pilot for “Feed Me,” which revolves around a close-knit family that runs a restaurant.

Robinson exec produces with Witt and Thomas for Universal TV. Witt and Thomas previously ran the prosperous Witt-Thomas-Harris Prods. banner that was home to “The Golden Girls,” “Benson,” “Blossom,” “Empty Nest,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “It’s a Living” and a host of other 1980s and ’90s series.
