LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Peter Krause and Maura Tierney are jumping back into primetime with roles on NBC’s pilot “Parenthood,” a project based on the 1989 movie that starred Steve Martin and Dianne Wiest.

Krause (“Dirty Sexy Money”) will play Adam Braverman, a married man with two children who is a lunatic beneath the surface. “ER” veteran Tierney will play his sister, Sarah Braverman, a single mother.

Dax Shepard will play the youngest Braverman, a slacker. Craig T. Nelson will play their father, a Vietnam vet-turned-actor/hippie. Mae Whitman will play the rebellious 16-year-old daughter of Tierney’s character.
