Monica Potter, Bonnie Bedelia and Sam Jaeger are the latest stars to join the cast of NBC’s new incarnation of “Parenthood.”

The hour-long dramedy is based on the 1989 Ron Howard directed theatrical hit, which previously spawned a short-lived TV series of its own. Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights”) is developing the pilot for NBC. Howard will executive produce along with Brian Grazer for Imagine TV.

The series focuses on four adult siblings (Peter Krause, Maura Tierney, Erika Christensen, Dax Shepard) and their parents (Craig T. Nelson and Bedelia).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Potter (“Trust Me,” “Boston Legal”) will replace Diane Farr as the wife to Krause’s character. Farr exited the pilot after landing a recurring role on Showtime’s “Californication.”

Jaeger (“Eli Stone”) will play the Christensen’s husband.
