Before winning over potheads everywhere as drug-dealing suburbanite Nancy Botwin on Jenji Kohan’s Weeds, Mary-Louise Parker first gained notice playing feminist lobbyist Amy Gardner on NBC’s The West Wing.
Parker will return to the Peacock Network to headline Feed Me, creator Sally Robinson’s single-camera comedy about a troubled family and the restaurant they own. THR describes the show as centering on “a dysfunctional family bound by love and the restaurant they run together. And when daughter Emma’s husband has an affair, they circle the wagons to fiercely protect one of their own. Parker will play the lead, Ellen, a slightly OCD wife, mother of two and accountant who is stuck in her ways and whose approach to life is a challenge for those around her.”
