In their never-ending quest to score a comedy that gets more than 3 million viewers on the regular, NBC is aggressively courting former Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker. She’s close to signing on for Feed Me, a single-camera pilot on which she would star as Ellen, an accountant with OCD who makes life for her husband and two children a tad difficult.

The show is described as a “comedic exploration of adult intimacy and desire that centers on a dysfunctional family bound by love and the restaurant they run together,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. “And when daughter Emma’s husband has an affair, they circle the wagons to fiercely protect one of their own.” And if you were wondering where the title of the show derives, most of Ellen’s family are in the food business.
