POLLY MOVES BACK IN WITH HER ECCENTRIC PARENTS, ON THE PREMIERE
OF ABC'S "HOW TO LIVE WITH YOUR PARENTS (FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE)"
Polly (Sarah Chalke) is a single mom who has recently divorced. The transition hasn't been easy for her, so she and daughter Natalie (Rachel Eggleston) have moved back home with Polly's eccentric parents, Elaine (Elizabeth Perkins) and stepfather Max (Brad Garrett). But Polly and her parents look at life through different generational lenses. Polly aspires to be organized and to take it slow with new relationships, while Max and Elaine live a more improvisational life style and encourage Polly to be adventurous, as does Polly's co-worker and close friend, Jenn (Stephanie Hunt), who advises her to jump back into dating. There are also differences on parenting itself: Polly wants to be an involved, modern parent who provides structure and guidance, while Max and Elaine are hands-off parents from the 1970s who feel that children need the freedom to fall and pick themselves back up. After all, Polly turned out okay, so what's the big deal?
In the premiere episode, "Pilot," Polly leaves her irresponsible husband, Julian, and taking her young daughter, Natalie, moves back in with her unpredictable parents, Elaine and stepfather Max. Apprehensive but determined to get her life back on track, Polly jumps into the dating scene and reluctantly leaves Natalie home for a night with her parents.
