Susan Sarandon to Star in Mother-Daughter Sitcom at NBC

Susan Sarandon joins the growing list of actresses heading to the small screen. She will star in a mother-daughter sitcom for NBC alongside her daughter, Eva Amurri Martino. 

Martino will write Growing Ivy with Will McCormack, which follows Ivy (Martino), a woman who has completely put all her focus into her career to try and gain stability in her life. In an attempt to rectify her personal life, Ivy decides to invite her mother (Sarandon) to move in with her so they can work on their relationship.

Sarandon and Martino will executive produce with McCormack and Rashida Jones.

The pair will also co-star in the upcoming Mother’s Day as a mother and daughter. Sarandon just recently booked a guest spot on Mike & Molly.

I hate to say it, but Susan Sarandon let me down big time when she knocked down feminism as an old fashioned word and then, called herself a humanist. Humanism is not about human rights and it certainly doesn't challenge the pervasive view that the male is the norm of humanity.

It is very male chauvinistic and downright rude for women and men who have benefitted from the feminist movement to knock down the movement. If they keep knocking it down, we're going to lose activists and then, we will really go backwards.
