From The Millers to the late How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life), sitcom protagonists sure move back in with their moms a lot. Such is the plot of the Jaime Pressly pilot just picked up by TV Land. As the lead in Jennifer Falls, Pressly plays a woman who must move herself and her teenage daughter back to her mother's house "after being let go from her high-powered, six-figure-salary job." Pressly still has a lot of goodwill stored up from her My Name is Earl days, but let's mix it up a little bit, networks. Maybe a high-powered business woman has to move back into her childhood treehouse or an abandoned ice cream truck? We're just spitballing here.
