Meadville is setting for WE reality show

| Saturday, Jan. 22, 2011

Meadville is the setting for a new reality television show starring comedian Tammy Pescatelli. "A Stand Up Mother" premieres Tuesday on the WE cable channel.

Pescatelli and her husband, Luca, relocated from Los Angeles to Meadville because they thought it would be a better place to raise their 2-year-old son, Luca. But Pescatelli, who was a finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing 2," wants to maintain a career in show business. A camera crew follows Pescatelli as she juggles motherhood while working as a stand-up comedian.

In Tuesday's premiere, Pescatelli's mother-in-law casts doubts on the legitimacy of their justice-of-the-peace marriage. To placate her, Pescatelli decides to combine a wedding with a baptism for Luca, or a wedtismal. In the midst of the preparations she gets a call for an audition in Hollywood that calls for her to adopt a trashy "Jersey Shore" look. What will her mother-in-law say?

"A Stand Up Mother" airs at 10 p.m. The show will repeat Wednesdays at 9 and 11 p.m.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
