Sally Robinson’s Feed Me Gets Late Pilot Order

It’s easy to be consumed by romantic love on a day like today, especially when every store is flooded with tiny bears holding even tinier hearts that bear (lol) sweet messages like “I love you” and “I didn’t cheat on you with my favorite medieval times waitress.” But let’s not forget that there are other types of love, like familial love which is often times more fulfilling than crappy wine-and-paint Groupon dates anyways. Sally Robinson, the scribe responsible for Lifetime’s successful Steel Magnolia‘s remake, is hoping that we’ll find familial love just as riveting as Drake songs since that’s what her new series, which just received a pilot order from NBC, is all about.
According to Deadline, Feed Me is “a comedic exploration of adult intimacy and desire that centers on a dysfunctional family bound by love and the restaurant they run together. When daughter Emma’s husband has an affair, [the family] circle[s] the wagons to fiercely protect one of their own.” Okay, so not only does this show have familial, romantic, and food love but it also sort of sounds like an Animal Planet documentary. If anyone has any inside knowledge about this show, please let us know if there are any confession-style single camera shots so we can prepare our trips to heaven.
So keep in mind as you progress through your Valentine’s Day that there are many different types of love. If you focus on that, there is no way to feel bummed or left out. (Unless your birthday is on Valentine’s Day in which case we are so sorry, you will never receive the attention you deserve on this special day!)
