Ask Matt:...
December 12, 2011


Question: Love reading your "Ask Matt" column every week and I've been meaning to send this one in for some time now. My wife and I both love Parenthood and the way they can keep the stories realistic and relatable without feeling too heavy. It's really one of the few dramas we enjoy. I remember when production started on this show, Maura Tierney was set to play Sarah but had to drop out due to her health concerns at the time (happy to know she has recovered and thought she was an excellent addition to last weeks Office episode) and she was replaced by the always enjoyable Lauren Graham. Did the writers change Sarah's character type or history much to fit the new actress? It's not that I don't think Maura Tierney could play the role, I just think it would've been played a bit differently between the two of them. — Jeff

Matt Roush: My memory is kind of cloudy regarding the original Parenthood pilot, which featured Maura Tierney before she had to bow out. But while the character didn't really change in specific terms of what Sarah and her kids were up to in the pilot, the tone lightened up considerably with Lauren Graham in the role, and that extended to the show as well, dialing back the angst a bit to bring more humor into the family drama. Tierney tends to be an edgier actor, so while I'm not saying Parenthood became better or worse with this pivotal cast change, it did feel different.

Parenthood: Married with children … and lots of crying
December 2, 2011


Los Angeles • Monica Potter’s eyes well up with tears. Even though she’s trying not to cry, she can’t help but get emotional. But she’s not in character.

After all, someone is crying and we’re seated in Adam and Christina Braverman’s living room, characters played by Potter and Peter Krause.

JasonRitter on tonight’s relationship tester for Mark & Sarah, his acting bucket list and his Mom!!
November 29, 2011


Just when you thought NBC’s drama Parenthood couldn’t get any better, Jason Ritter has been back on the show this season as Mark, the most patient boyfriend ever to Sarah (Lauren Graham). While Sarah was recently tending to her troubled ex (John Corbett) – and ended up sharing a smooch with him – Mark has been idling on the sidelines. How long will it take before he finds out about Sarah’s wayward lips? And, for an actor like Ritter who has played a little bit of everything, what else is on his acting bucket list? I grabbed some phone time with him recently to discuss all.

Interview: "Parenthood" Executive Producer Jason Katims
November 1, 2011


In this day where television series tend to lean towards worlds inhabited by zombies and vampires, being transported in time to the 1960s or new spins on classic fairy tales, a show like NBC’s Parenthood is a rare thing. The Jason Katims-developed series, however, is doing just fine holding its own in its third season by weaving stories about the grounded-in-reality relationships in the world of the Northern California-based Braverman clan. As Katims told me last week, despite not having the same issues to deal with as, say, The Walking Dead, there are still plenty of challenges in crafting a family drama in the 21st Century. During their chat, Katims talked about balancing comedy and drama, the crafting of a main character with asperger’s syndrome and allowing the actors to feel as free as possible during shooting as well as teased some of the storylines currently playing out on the addictive drama.

To this day, I look to that series as life-changing as it examined life and death in ways that just weren't discussed on television. I couldn't help myself, so I went up to him at the NBC party and we discussed the impact of Six Feet Under, what he's watching on television these days, and just how much he loves his television casts: past and present.

Parenthood: Season 2 DVD Details

Is Parenthood set to have just 16 episode in it 3rd Season?
August 1, 2011


The following seams to say that...

'Well, you come from Showtime, and one of the things that cable discovered over the last decade was that you rotate: you do 13 episodes, then a new show comes in for another 13, etc. Shorter seasons, keep the quality up, originals year-round, and you don't have those weird breaks in March and April where you get one original episode in a 5-week period.'

" I think we'll gradually see more and more of that. It's obviously easier to do that with reality shows, for economic reasons. We already do that with "Biggest Loser." You can tailor those, because they're expandable or contractable. Harder to do with scripted shows, but we're trying a couple of versions of that this year. There's 16 "Parenthood"s, 15 "Smash"es, 13 "Awake"s because it's mid-season. There could be a scenario where "Parenthood" runs all 16 episodes almost sequentially, which is a benefit to "Parenthood." We saw as we ramped up through the finale in May, it grew, grew, grew. Then when "Parenthood" is done, we'll probably have 10 or 12 weeks of the season left where we could put a show like "Awake." But of course that's more costly. That's stretching one show throughout 35 weeks."

Deadline Emmy Magazine - Jason Katims Interview
June 14, 2011


In a recent interview Jason Katims (Executive Producer on Parenthood) talked about the show and it's chances for a Emmy. "I think so. As the show continued into its second season, I really noticed a change in the way critics and viewers were looking at the show. It has 15 series regular characters in it —probably twice as many as most shows— and it takes some time for the audience to get to know them and get comfortable with who they are and get to understand all the relationships. Once they have that, the enjoyment of the show really goes up so much. I also think if you look at our cast, Lauren Graham, Peter Krause, they are worthy of being recognized. We’ll see how far we get this year."

10 Reasons You Need to Watch ‘Parenthood’
March 13, 2011


“Parenthood” is a show that flies under the radar. There are no dead bodies, medical crises or supernatural incidents. It’s that rarest of television shows, a family drama that deals with actual real life family problems. In other words, the Braverman family is struggling with raising kids and paying bills, not worrying about how they are going to spend the millions of dollars they received from selling the water rights to some land - no offense, “Brothers & Sisters.” They are a true modern family complete with a stay at home dad, a child with Asperger’s syndrome, and multiple helicopter parents. Here are ten reasons why you should be watching...

Question: I love Parenthood, just wondering if you know if it will be picked up for a third season. —Stephanie
Ausiello: Per TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard, it’s holding steady at a “safe bet.” My suggestion: Vote ’til your fingers fall off when the show takes on The Defenders next week in TVLine’s “Renew Our Show” Bracket Tournament. These are uncertain times, and you don’t want to leave anything to chance.

Ecollywood: Odds and ends
February 2, 2011


"It's so integrated now into how I live that it's just second nature," Lauren Graham says about being eco-aware. She still drives an old SUV, figuring for now that it's better to hold onto it than buy something new, even if it's a hybrid. She's excited about an upcoming "Parenthood" storyline that will involve her ex, played by John Corbett ("United States of Tara") and will introduce a new set of conflicts for her character Sarah. "He's been amazing and it's such an interesting character because we talk about him having a drug problem and leaving the kids but he's deeply charming and a musician - he's going to perform on the show," says Graham. Corbett's three episodes begin airing Feb. 8.
