Director Ron Howard brings ‘Parenthood’ to TV again

Give Ron Howard credit. He's tenacious.

Back in 1990, the actor/director created a television version of his 1989 feature film "Parenthood" with Leonardo DiCaprio, Thora Birch and David Arquette in the cast. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" mastermind Joss Whedon was one of the writers.

Even with all that fire power, the show lasted 11 episodes.

That hasn't stopped Howard from trying again - albeit 20 years later. His new TV version of "Parenthood" debuts at 10 p.m. March 2 on NBC.

"'Parenthood' is a project that I really, you know, I cherish," Howard says. "It's a great memory. It was a great creative experience. To this day, it's probably the most personal film that I've ever really been involved with or story that I've been involved with. And so it's something that I hold near and dear."
