Will 2012 finally be the year that Sarah Chalke headlines her own successful TV show?
ABC is going to try to make it happen for fall: The network has cast the Scrubs vet in How to Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life, a comedy pilot from Claudia Lonow (Friends with Benefits). Chalke will play Polly, a recently divorced single mom moves in with her eccentric parents, Elaine and Max, a couple who are full of life but know no boundaries.
In 2010, Chalke headlined the short-lived CBS comedy Mad Love. She also memorably recurred on How I Met Your Mother as Stella while starring on Scrubs, the Bill Lawrence comedy that wrapped two years ago.
ABC tried to find a comedy for Chalke in 2010 by giving her the starring role in the ABC sitcom pilot Freshman, which never saw the light of day.
