The mother-daughter sitcom, titled "Growing Ivy," revolves around Type A personality Ivy Davis (Martino), "who craves the stability she lacked in her childhood and, as a result, has thrown herself into her career at the expense of her personal life. In an attempt to restore balance and potentially find love, she invites her freewheeling, eccentric mom, Franckie (Sarandon), to move in with her and work on their relationship."
The single-camera comedy is written by Martino and Will McCormack ("Celeste and Jesse Forever"), who is producing the project alongside his writing partner Rashida Jones of "Parks and Recreation."
"I am excited beyond words, and so looking forward to this adventure with my AMAZING, gorgeous, rockstar Mom @susansarandon !" the actress wrote on Instagram. "I created this character especially for her and she is going to CRUSSSHHH IT. Can't wait for everyone to get a glimpse in to our real-life dynamic on GROWING IVY!!"
Sarandon, an Oscar winner for her role in "Dead Man Walking," recurred on Showtime's "The Big C" and recently landed a guest role on "Mike & Molly."
Sarandon and Martino, who will also serve as co-executive producers on "Growing Ivy," previously played mother and daughter onscreen in "The Banger Sisters" and in the upcoming indie "Mother's Day." They also appeared together in "Friends" and "That's My Boy."
