susan-sarandon-eva-amurri-martinoAcademy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon is set to star in Growing Ivy, a single-camera comedy pilot for NBC, conceived, co-written by and co-starring her daughter Eva Amurri Martino, and executive-produced by Parks and Recreation favorite Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (the latter who will co-write with Martino).

Growing Ivy finds Martino in the lead role of Ivy Davis, a Type A career woman with a flailing personal life who invites her freewheeling, eccentric mom Franckie (Sarandon) to move in with her and work on their relationship. Her goal? To experience some of the stability she lacked in her childhood, restore balance in her everyday existence and potentially find love.

Martino and Sarandon will also serve as co-executive producers. Sarandon recently signed on for a one-episode guest stint on Season 4 of CBS’ Mike & Molly. Martino’s recent TV credits include New Girl, The Mindy Project and Californication.
