The Parenthood Project

posted by Nell Minow

I’m looking forward to the new television series “Parenthood,” based on the 1989 movie starring Steve Martin, Jason Robards, and Dianne Weist. Producer Brian Grazer, director Ron Howard and screenwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel based the film on their own experiences as the fathers of a total of 14 children and on their relationships with their own parents when they were teenagers.
The television show stars “Gilmore Girls'” Lauren Graham (replacing Maura Tierney who is battling cancer), and “Six Feet Under’s” Peter Krause. In connection with the show’s premiere, the producers have teamed up with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America for The Parenthood Project. They will donate $20 to the Family Strengthening Initiative for everyone who submits a response to their question: “What does parenthood mean to you?” with video, photo, text, or tweet (with hashtag #parenthoodis).
